Police Magazine reports that FLEOA Foundation President Jon Adler issued the following statement:

Actions speak louder than scripted words, and the honorable act of displaying law enforcement’s ‘Thin Blue Line’ at the White House would demonstrate the President’s sincere commitment to our fallen heroes and their families.

“Please know that the law enforcement community draws no comfort from Speaker Ryan’s remarks that it’s ‘A time for healing.’ As Speaker Ryan made that statement today, a police officer was shot in Missouri. We can’t heal while law enforcement officers continue to bleed.
