October 2020 News Roundup
Despite the challenging year we’ve faced so far, October was a hopeful month for the state of our country and our police offiers with all the Pro-Police rallies taking place across multiple states.
This month we finished up our Restore Respect for Police video series with a video about Kim Foxx. In Chicago, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx continues to drop charges against violent criminals, even as rioters and looters run rampant in the Windy City. We cannot have officials in office who do not stand for police and continuously work to protect their rights. We hope that our efforts to Restore Respect for Police throughout the past few months will pay off and we will continue our efforts post-election.
We have contacted more than 800,000 supporters across the U.S. to urge them to get to the polls. The goal of the campaign is to encourage as many people as possible to show their support for police and politicians who are committed to upholding and defending the rule of law. We are hopeful that these efforts will vote out politicians who don’t stand for the Rule of Law.
