"She's the last of the V8's. Sucks nitro!" - Barry, Mad Max
Rounding out our No One is Coming t-shirt series is the Law Enforcement Officer tee. Over the past 5 or so years, we've gotten a ton of requests from the LEO community to make a No One Is Coming version for them. This year we decided to do it, as the requests have really picked up.
The phrase rings just as true in combat zones as it does in permissive environments, like in our cities and towns. When the kaka hits the fan, it often doesn't matter if a backup is coming because it will be over by then so it's up to the individual or team to perform the best they can, right then and there. When it gets to this point, they're often fighting for their lives.
We understand that with current events, tensions are running high and emotions can cloud things for all of us.
At the end of the day, we support our law enforcement community. We know there are bad seeds in every profession, and we also know the vast majority of LEOs are outstanding folks who do a dangerous and mostly thankless job, for low pay. They are required to quickly make difficult decisions, de-escalate whenever possible, and exercise restraint in emotionally charged situations.
We're not gonna throw the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak. Thank you all for watching out for us!
*On a lighter note, do you recognize the badge in this design? Hint: See the Mad Max quote above. It's from the classic, and original film...Mad Max.
