Business Owner Harassed For Supporting Law Enforcement

Law Officer - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 10:19

A Cherokee Antique Row (St. Louis) business owner says she and others in the area are being harassed for displaying flags supporting police on their storefronts.

Cherri Elder owns Elder’s Antiques, a family owned and operated business that has been open for 32 years.

She’s formed relationships with the police that patrol the area and wanted to offer her support by displaying an American flag with a thin blue line in front of her store. However, the flag wasn’t accepted by everyone in the area.

“People came by, they would cuss at you, harass you,” she said, “They would harass the customers.”

She eventually took the flag down to avoid any more confrontations.

“I thought things were getting better,” said Elder, “but apparently it’s not.”

KMOV reports that a month later she found a handwritten letter posted on the front window of her shop that read: “Pig supporters not welcome. Flag goes down or you go down.”

On the right corner, there was a symbol most commonly connected with the Communist Party and the letters MLM, which often stand for Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, related to a communist political philosophy that builds upon Marxism.

 

Elder doesn’t think she’ll be placing the flag back up but isn’t letting the message intimidate her.

State Police Encourage Officers To Carry Concealed Weapons To Church

Law Officer - Tue, 02/20/2018 - 10:12

Rhode Island State Police are encouraging law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons when they attend church services.

More than 100 clergymen, greeters, ushers, and parishioners from churches across the state packed the hall at St. James Episcopal Church for a presentation by Captain Derek Borek.  Borek taught the crowd of mostly seniors how they could stop — or at least slow down — deadly shootings in their own parish halls.  He also said that his agency encourages officers to carry weapons at church.

“If someone comes in here shooting,” Borek said, gesturing toward the door, “what are our options? What can we do?”

They could run out the door, a man suggested. But the trooper countered: “Do we know what we’re running into? How many people do you think we can get out of here in 15 seconds?”

“I’m not telling you what’s right or wrong,” Borek said. “I just want to get you thinking.”
