The members of the Warwick Police Benevolent Association would like to express our appreciation for the gesture of support for law enforcement officers who live in and work for the community.
Garrett Durland and a few others have expressed their opinion regarding the inclusion of a black line next to the blue line.
I agree with them.
Advise all who are concerned that I will personally pay for the painting of the additional line if the Village permits it.
After attending the vigil at the Temple Beth Shalom Cemetery Sunday afternoon, I have come to realize how paint can divide a community, be it sprayed on a wall or a line in the street.
My comments on Facebook after the Temple Beth Shalom Cemetery vigil: “To those responsible for the horrific act of vandalism at the Temple Beth Shalom Cemetery. If you think you would divide this community…you failed.”
We have the similar message to those who will try to make political hay out of the good intentions of a supportive community. We support an open line of communication. Paint another line. Show the world that this community will not be divided by issues…or paint.
