Letting the police know they have public support is a great idea.
If you left a note on a police car, what would yours say? Mine wouldn’t say I “loved” them. That’s not the right tone, no offense intended to the Christensens, this was their heartfelt note and it’s nice. I like the part about “Don’t Let the Media Get You Down.”
Say some website was going to publish a card that would be left on a police card (looks around), something viral and ubiquitous, what would be a sentiment that most could get behind?
“You Do Your Job, We’ll Do Ours” sounds combative, and that tone is wrong, but it’s closer than “We Love You.”
It might be a tough task to come up with a universally accepted “note,” but let’s give it a whirl.
The thumbs will let us know which “note” would be supported most.
