We Must Choose Sides Between Chaos and Police

"What that says is there’s no longer any middle ground. The contrasts are too stark. We can side with a working mother, someone’s daughter and neighbor, who is willing to risk her life for her community and her partner. Or we can side with those who laugh at her being shot and choking on her own blood, her only sin being the badge she wears." - TAC

In Support of Our Law Enforcement Officers

"We understand that you often find yourselves in volatile situations that demand the Wisdom of Solomon in a split second. You walk a fine line where your own personal safety is a stake on one side, and potentially life-changing legal consequences loom on the other. We pray God will keep you safe and give you His wisdom. We pray that God will enable you to see your circumstances clearly, carry out your duties justly, and come home safely." - Kevi Schaal
