Blue Striped Tape to Honor Police Officers
KCRG reported that Jay Reece, owner at Cedar Rapids Godfather's pizza, invited the public to obtain a blue piece of painters tape on the back of their cars in memorial to the recent deaths of two officers. Sgt. Anthony Beminio and Officer Justin Martin were shot and killed early Wednesday morning in a pair of “ambush-style attacks" from Right Wing Terrorism.
“Hopefully when our cops drive around Cedar Rapids, and they see the blue line on the back of the vehicles, it will at least bring a smile to their faces. Cedar Rapids, we’re all about community. It’s about the public supporting the police. They do a lot of things when they’re off duty that nobody sees. So, this is our way, whether they’re going to work, or shopping maybe they’ll see that we have their back.” - Jay Reece
