Painting the words “Follow the Golden Rule” on the back of every police vehicle sets the tone of behavior between citizens and law enforcement. The Golden Rule states that we are to treat every human being as we would want to be treated.
The idea of supporting law enforcement by a blue line down the middle of the street is meaningless. The blue line is a blank page saying whatever the citizen wants it to say.
“Follow the Golden Rule” states loud and clear that we want peace officers and not a police state with Gestapo powers.
If your local governing body rejects your request to place these words on the back of every police vehicle, call for them to place it on the ballot for the people to decide in November by way of resolution, which they can do without any long list of signatures.
