Fed up Baltimore cops launch ‘MyLifeMatters’ campaign; the reaction is unbelievable!

Baltimore police are facing a barrage of criticism on social media after the local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police launched a #MyLifeMatters campaign on Twitter.

In response to days of anti-police protests in Baltimore last week, Gene Ryan, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Baltimore City Lodge 3, has expressed concern about low morale among officers during interviews with the media and the campaign serves as a show of support.

Photos depicting officers with the hashtag written on their hands surfaced on Twitter, along with photos from family members. There was even a photo posted in support of slain New York Police Department Officer Brian Moore, who was shot and killed over the weekend.

But the feel-good sentiment was more than the “police brutality” crowd could tolerate, with one user accusing police of instigating conflict: “Baltimore police union really trying it with this hashtag. They really do want a war.”

Here is that tweet, along with a number of other vile reactions, as seen on Twitter:
