The Tucson Police Officers Association reported that one of their members was targeted at his home last night.
In Facebook Post, they stated the following:
“Last night one of our members had his home and personally owned vehicle vandalized. He does not take a police car home. He does not wear a uniform to or from his house. He does not have a thin blue line flag or any pro cop stickers. The only way to explain this damage was that he was targeted. Targeted for the job he does. Targeted because he answered the call to serve his community.”
The Association continued, “This is unacceptable. How does something like this further the discussion that our country so desperately needs to have? How does scaring the family of a police officer help to improve relationships?”
“For the better part of two weeks police officers all over this country have been targeted because of the uniform they wear. Officers have been shot and killed, stabbed and ran over by vehicles. Sadly, these types of incidents are doing nothing to help the country heal. This must stop. We can do better.”
