A police department whose cars sported the decal seen above has caved to blacks who consider the words “Blue Live Matter” to be racist.
Excerpt from the Daily Mail
A police department in Kentucky removed ‘Blue Lives Matter’ decals featuring the Marvel comic character The Punisher from their patrol cars after public outcry.
Catlettsburg Police Chief Cameron Logan, who helped create the decals as a way to ‘give back to the police officers’, said both the city council and mayor approved of the design, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.
While many locals were supportive of the decals, others said the message was dismissive to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Critics also pointed out that the Punisher is a vigilante who fights crime through brutal means like torture, murder and extortion – making the association with a police force a disturbing one.
Logan enlisted a decal business in Louisiana and the large design, featuring the Punisher skull with ‘Blues Lives Matter’ emblazoned over it, was added to the patrol cars in December.
The police chief defended his decision to the Lexington Herald-Leader, saying: ‘“That design is basically to give back to the police officers. Our lives matter just as much as anybody’s.
‘I’m not racist or anything like that, I’m not trying to stir anything up like that. I consider it to be a ‘warrior logo’.
When you give in to leftists, it only empowers them. Resist!
