    MADISON, Wis. -- University of Wisconsin-Madison's police chief has banned officers from using “Thin Blue Line” imagery while on duty. The move by Chief Kristen Roman follows criticism on social media of a “Thin Blue Line” flag displayed at the police department's office. The flag, which resembles a U.S. flag but has a blue stripe, is considered a sign of police solidarity, but has also been criticized as a symbol of white supremacy. Roman said the flag has been “co-opted” by extremists with “hateful ideologies” and that her department needs to distance itself from the imagery to build trust with...

    A high school in Florida has banned its football team from flying the “Thin Blue Line” flag, deeming it inappropriate, after the athletes flew the pro-police flags on the field to honor one student’s dead police officer father. A “racist” flag?: Fletcher High School’s football team, the Fletcher Senators, had flown the flag during 11 games of the 2019 season and flew it again during a game last week. The team flew the flag to honor former Jacksonville Beach police officer Cpl. Andy Lavender who died last August. His son, Caelan, is an offensive lineman for the team.

    An outspoken Staten Island artist says he’s being targeted by the city over his pro-cop views — and his less-than-flattering banner of Mayor Bill de Blasio holding up Lady Liberty’s severed head. “The mayor knows me as not being his biggest supporter,” Scott LoBaido told The Post on Wednesday. The NYC Department of Transportation last week sent LoBaido a cease and desist letter regarding a blue line he painted on a Hylan Boulevard median outside the 122nd NYPD precinct in New Dorp. The thin blue line, which Lobaido painted as a show of support to law enforcement, is in violation...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The FBI has been called to investigate after a man died Monday night in south Minneapolis after an encounter with police. In a statement early Tuesday, police described what happened as a medical incident. However, a video posted on social media shows an officer kneeing a man’s neck to the ground for several minutes. Before he goes unconscious, the man, who is black, repeatedly tells officers he can’t breathe. At a press conference Tuesday morning, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey alluded to the graphic footage, saying: “I believe what I saw, and what I saw was wrong at...

    As conservatives, we pride ourselves on our unwavering support of the Thin Blue Line, on backing our cops against leftist slander, and yet stupid and evil people in law enforcement are putting that default thumbs-up from normal Americans at risk. It’s bad enough when we watch the ridiculous spectacle of Deputy Karren and Deputy Man-Karen yelling at some mom for committing felony play-dating, but then we see how the FBI has flat-out framed political enemies and it’s too much. If the LEO community does not police its own ranks and stamp out this nonsense, it might as well take all...

    GERMANTOWN, Md. - A county executive in Maryland has banned a police station from displaying a wooden “thin blue line” flag that was a gift from a local resident. "The flag provides a symbol of support to some but it is a symbol of dismissiveness to others,” Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich said in a note. “Because it is divisive, the flag will not be posted at the 5th District nor in any public space within the Police Department."

    A “thin blue line” flag meant to honor law enforcement was removed from the Connecticut State Capitol this week after Democrats complained it might offend Black Lives Matter supporters. The handmade wooden plaque depicting a “thin blue line” flag — an altered American flag with a horizontal blue stripe through the center — was recently donated to the Capitol building by a member of the State Capitol Police. Until this week, it hung in the Police Memorial Hall connecting the Legislative Office Building to the Capitol building, a local NBC affiliate reported. The Office of Legislative Management, which originally approved...
