Mississippi Police Chief Adds ‘All Lives Matter’ to Patrol Cars

Edwards Police Chief Torrence Mayfield in Mississippi decided that he wanted to do something to bring the community together after the assassinations of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Chief Mayfield got together with Mayor Marcus Walland and they decided to use their own money to get “All Lives Matter” decals for the back of patrol cars.

“It should not just be ‘Black Lives Matter’ or ‘Blue Lives Matter,'” Chief Mayfield said. “But Hispanic, Muslim, Jewish – all lives should matter and nothing warrants police officers’ lives lost. We want this to resonate far and abroad. Everywhere. All communities should embrace this.”

Chief Mayfield is right, all decent groups of people should embrace this. Nobody should criticize the statement “All Lives Matter” just because it doesn’t single out one individual color.

Thankfully, the Edwards community appears to be embracing the All Lives Matter decals.

“I mean it shows that they are trying to make steps into the right way,” Jivonrick Butler, of Jackson, told MS News Now, “But I don’t think it’s ever going to be a full acceptance or change like it’s suppose to be.”

“‘Blue Lives Matter’ is not going to be welcome by everyone and neither is ‘Black Lives Matter'”, Chief Mayfield told MS News Now, “You are not going to be able to please everyone, but 100% of my officers completely agreed, the Mayor agreed and everyone has absolutely loved it.”

Hopefully more communities begin to embrace All Lives Matter as a way to unite people, and ignore the divisive rhetoric of Black Lives Matter.
