a petition

I recently read on Police Wives Inc. that following the shooting of a Nashville officer, the local news broadcast a segment demonstrating how to defeat police body armor. This segment quickly devolved into an instructional video on how to murder police officers. While this may be public information via a google search, many believe that broadcasting this information on the evening news is in very poor taste. I agree.

Compounding the frustration is the response given by the news station to the sickened and outraged law enforcement community. Police Wives Inc., have set up a petition entitled, "Stop demonstrating how to kill cops!" They want at least 2,500 signatures. The last time I checked there was only 156.

If you agree with Police Wives Inc., read their petition and sign it. I did. There are varying degrees of privacy when signing the petition. You can remain anonymous if you'd like.

Thanks for the information. Did you see the segment online as well? I didn't see it over at PWI, and was curious how the information was presented by the reporter.

Thanks Christopher and SD.

Slamdunk and anyone else who wants to see it for themselves, here's the link. And I still haven't read how to make the hyperlink in the comments. So you'll have to copy and paste. :)

Thanks for the link Mrs. F. The reporter's gimmick is over the top and irresponsible. I'll sign the petition as well.
