PHOTO: MS Sheriff Adds THIS New Slogan To Police Cars, BLM Is Not Going To Be Happy
The Black Lives Matter movement has been very vocal about turning one side against the other and making American's pick a side, either hate cops and potentially harm or kill them or show you're support for our police force. They have tried to make people think that their is no middle ground on this very controversial and pertinent issue in America.
Well, Mississippi police understands that this issue is far from black and white and if we are ever to ease this tension and mend relations between the black community and our nation's police force we must come together and remove the lines that divide Americans into sides. That's why they've decided to put this awesome detail on all the squad cars in Edwards, Mississippi.
Police Chief Torrence Mayfield has decided to put a slogan that reads "All lives matter" on their squad cars to help mend police relations in America. Chief Mayfield says it's a message that we should all get behind.
"It should not just be 'Black Lives Matter' or 'Blue Lives Matter," explained chief mayfield. "But Hispanic, Muslim, Jewish - all lives should matter and nothing warrants police officers' lives lost. We want this to resonate far and abroad. Everywhere. All communities should embrace this."
Chief Mayfield says that he decided to put the decals on after the tragic shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, in addition to the brutal attacks in Dallas, Baton Rouge and San Diego.
Chief Mayfield and the mayor of Edwards even decided to pay for the decals out of pocket, showing that they are truly concerned with making this situation better and are willing to work to do so unlike the BLM thugs that are hell-bent on hate and violence.
Mayfield says that he has only received positive responses from the local community after he added slogans to the cars.
However, Mississippi news reported that they had some controversial feelings towards the new slogan. One Jackson resident said that he doesn't think they are paying blacks enough attention.
"All lives do matter, but I just wish that they would care a little bit more about young African-Americans."
It's the very idea that anyone should care more about African-American lives than any other lives that is the root of the problem. Can you imagine if someone said they wish people cared more about white lives than black lives? It would be pandemonium.
Please share this on Facebook if you agree that all lives matter not just black ones!
