This is Nickolas Dejarnette, owner of P.A (Professionally Affordable) Landscaping & Home Improvement LLC in Boston.
A long time customer of his had one of these signs in their yard to show their support for murdered police officers.
One day he stopped showing up without an explanation so the customer contacted him to find out why. Turns out his company has a strict policy of refusing service to anyone who supports the families of murdered police officers.
The sign does not “speak against their lives and existence.” It speaks for the lives of murdered police officers and and the existence of living police officers who have been unfairly maligned with the actions of a rogue cop in Minnesota. This asshole accepted this woman’s money for years and suddenly is too good for it because she doesn’t like the idea of fathers and mothers being gunned down simply because they wear blue to work.
I’m so sick of these idiots redefining symbols and then banning those symbols because they suddenly find them offensive. They did it with the OK sign, phrases like “all lives matter,” and now the thin blue line. If your company wants to make a public stand and let the world know that you have a problem with honoring people like Michael Chesna, Sean Gannon, and Ron Tarentino, then you deserve every bit of criticism you get from the public.
