Normally when we offer to provide E Pluribus Unum decals to police departments they just ignore us. But today we received a reply from the Trinidad Texas Police Department. Below are the parts of their Facebook post that pertain to us and our offer.
I had posted one more reply that said the department had yet to accept or decline our offer since the assumption was that we were asking them to replace the current decals with the new ones, which was not the case. We were offering a compromise to have both.
But before I was able to get back and take a screenshot of my comment (I got a little busy so it wasn’t right away) they had deleted the entire conversation. And not only did they delete our conversation, they blocked the Project from commenting on the page.
To make matters worse, they also deleted and or banned anyone voicing dissent. You can tell by the odd way some people seem to be talking to themselves.
This is all to common as of late. Another police department willing to step all over the first amendment and restrict the rights of citizens to address government on an open public forum. They have no public policy about comments at this time.
Looks like we have to inform another police department about how the first amendment works.
