    Anybody can ask anything they want. So the union is free to ask Amazon to remove the shirts.

    But that said, it seems to me to be a really petty request. If the police union is concerned about the t-shirts people are wearing, or the profit from selling those shirts going to a group that they don't like, then they're focusing on the wrong part of the issue.

    More pathetic posturing by another racist FOP boss. The Black Lives Matter movement is the result of a lack of trust between POC and police, not the cause of it. If FOP chapters were serious about improving relations between themselves and the public, they would root out White supremacy from within their ranks and take corruption of their coworkers seriously. They do not.

    A large portion of their group have taken to violence and intimidation in order to further their political objectives. BLM is a domestic terrorist organisation.

    That being said, they're still allowed to sell t-shirts and the police are allowed to ask them to stop selling the t-shirts. Doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things.

    Only in a racist mind are minorities speaking words considered akin to physical violence.

    I wouldn't say that murderer-police should be put to death, but other people have their own opinions on capital punishment when a crime has occurred.

    You're joking right? Assaulting reporters, full-out battery, destruction of private property, blocking highways, looting, and rioting. This has all been on video across numerous cities.

    The lazy-man's assertion. You are gong to have connect this to the organization itself using more than the color of the perpetrator's skin color.

    Holding signs saying "Black lives matter", references to those killed by police shootings, and hateful messages directed to the police isn't enough to connect them to the movement? Why is it that whenever a police shooting related to the BLM movement happens, it tends to rioting?

    Your post makes no sense. White supremacy is a philisophical belief. No one is required to be connected any organization to be an adherent.

    I'm not a fan of any racist hate groups, such as BLM, but it would be hypocritical for Amazon to pull this shirt while they're selling KKK and White Lives Matter shirts.

    Probably be better to just stay out of those areas and let the problem self resolve.

    You obviously don't understand the irony of your post.

    In the most egregrious cases, police organizations behave as if they are criminal enterprises who just happen to have the "law" on their side.
    Letting the problem self resolve would mean Anarchy, and they are too many people who are afraid of the A word.

    I'm glad Walmart stopped selling the bullet proof shirts. I hope Amazon does too.
