Just saw this on my local news. Residents are using blue bulbs in their porch lights to show their support for LEO’s. Any BITOGERS heard of this?

It was big around here a couple of years ago. Not so much now.

And will the blue light make neighborhoods darker and more dangerous, giving LEO's more to do?

Blue is LEO

Green in military

Red is fire department

At least that's how it is around here.

Not a fan. Or of the black and white flags with the blue stripe. Nothing against LEOs but there has to be a better way than to disrespect the American Flag.

I've not seen blue lights. I put some blue seran wrap over my led portch light.

Haven't heard of it, and my porch lights will stay white.

It was a big thing here in central Iowa last year when 2 police officers were brutally gunned down unprovoked. It was to show the LEOs the communities were behind them and a tribute to the slain officers. It was replacing the normal outside light on at night with a blue bulb for a month. Most streets around here have street lights and people usually only use that outside light when expecting company.

It was in my local news due to two cops being murdered on duty in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus.
I will add my thoughts which you may or may not like.
I'm burned out over the soldier and first responder glory in the news. I respect members of our military,
LEO's, firemen and paramedics, but I don't look up to them like they are better than anyone else who works hard
to provide for their family.

They still do that around here. But its not a good idea.. it barely gives off any usable light at night... and most side streets dont have streetlights.(maybe just at the corner)

Add to this the much overused term of Hero. Of course we can thank the media for all this nonsense.
