(Founder’s note: This is a nonpartisan Blog post that does not support a particular candidate, a specific political party, or any agenda related to a politician. This Blog is being written to show ‘Presidential support’ for the men & women serving in the police profession. Please read and understand we are simply supporting POLICE.)
Something truly historic and amazing happened the same day our newly sworn in President took office. It needs to be stated this has not occurred in decades and it needed to happen. The website for The White House posted an official message supporting every police officer in America! Here is the opening paragraph to the website message:
“One of the fundamental rights of every American is to live in a safe community. A Trump Administration will empower our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and keep our streets free of crime and violence. The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration. President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the public. The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it.”
HOPE4BLUE developed this same message when creating our 501(c)(3). We need the President to delegate his staff to review our website and our missions and assist in getting our message out to America! The sooner the better. We created our national nonprofit to bring Unity to our cities, reduce violence against our police officers, raise funds to develop advanced training platforms to keep them safe, and purchase technology to help them become efficient and serve us better. We also take care of the police officers who sign up as Members should they get injured or are killed in the line of duty.
The reason the Presidential message is so powerful is simply because the anti-Police rhetoric and hateful speech against them has to stop! The pendulum has to swing in favor of Police to keep us safe, keep crime in check, and reduce overall violence in our cities.
2010 there were 177 Line of Duty Deaths, 59 from Gunfire, this is 34%.
2011 there were 181 Line of Duty Deaths, 68 from Gunfire, this is 37.5%.
2012 there were 139 Line of Duty Deaths, 48 from Gunfire, this is 34.5%.
2013, there were 124 Line of Duty Deaths, 31 from Gunfire, this is 25%.
2014, there were 146 Line of Duty Deaths, 48 from Gunfire, this is 33%.
2015, there were 130 Line of Duty Deaths, 39 from Gunfire, 30%.
AND, in 2016, there were 140 Line of Duty Deaths, 63 from Gunfire, this is 45%.
This is a VERY disturbing trend in just ONE year. The reason? Police Officers have been demonized in many media stories and on every social media post by those not respecting the police role in American society. The increase of “Gunfire deaths” involving our police officers increased 15% in ONE year. I cannot find a time when this happened in the last 30 years and it cannot increase ever again. In order to find a year that is higher than 45%, we have to go all the way back to the year 1994, 23 years ago, when there were 183 Line of Duty Deaths, 85 from Gunfire, which is 46.5%!
Now is the time to help us in our mission! We want you to join our mission today for only $2.00/month. Then, get at least 10 loved ones you care about and want to keep their city safe. They need to join HOPE4BLUE and support our missions immediately. We need at least 100,000 citizens to answer the call to keep Police safe, show them they are supported, and stop this anti-police messaging that is everywhere in our society. It simply cannot be tolerated another day and thank you to the White House for posting their support for the American Police Officer!
Make America Safe Again! #masa
