“Go Blue” On Tuesday, February 16 To Support Magic Valley Law Enforcement
If you pay attention to the news, maybe you've noticed an alarming number of law enforcement officers that have been killed in the line of duty. In fact, CNN is reporting 5 in the span of just a few days. In response to this, we are asking you to join us on Tuesday, February 16 as we "Go Blue" to show support for all our local Magic Valley law enforcement agencies.
Gunfire claimed the lives of at least five on-duty officers in an unusually deadly week for U.S. law enforcement.
In four days, five officers were killed in the line of duty in shootings around the country, more than doubling the number of officers who have died by gunfire so far this year.
Here's what we're going to do and we encourage you to do the same. We're going to wear as much blue as possible on Tuesday, February 16. It's a simple gesture to show the local officers that we support and salute them. We're going to do it. Will you join us?
