FLEOA Letter of Support - Thin Blue Line

September 24, 2015

Senator Pat Toomey
248 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Toomey,

TheFederal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) applauds your leadership with the introduction of the "Thin Blue Line Act”(S.2034).

Since the beginning of this year, 95 law enforcement offices have died in the line of duty.Some of those deaths, like that of Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Wilson were targeted, shot and killed by violent criminals. Those law enforcement officer deaths are akin to an assault on the rule of law and our community at large.

The recent onslaught of anti-law enforcement rhetoric has clearly incited those on the fringe towards violence.That and any other attack on America’s front line of protection deserves maximum punishment.

The"Thin BlueLine" act provides that and ensuresthat any attack on a law enforcement officer is seen through the right lens - one colored in American red, white and blue.

 

Respectfully yours,

JonAdler

FLEOA National President
