A Northern California school police officers union under fire after they sold T-shirts with a picture of a child behind bars and the slogan: “U raise ’em, we cage ’em.” The Twin Rivers Police Department in North Highlands has ended further sales after the objections of citizens.
The T-shirts were meant to raise money for fallen officers and were sold for $12 each. Association President Arlin Kocher agreed to withdraw the t-shirts, adding “I don’t think this will be received well by the public, which is why we stopped selling them.” I can’t imagine why the public would not well receive such slogans. The T-shirt image was posted on Kocher’s own Facebook page.
Methinks a return to the “Officer Friendly” campaign might be advisable.
