Most are, so our new Chief just decides to remove the public display of support for his own officers? I can tell you, many of them aren't offended by his decision.

Most of the protestors are peaceful. It doesn't mean there isn't riot issues going on. "Most cops are honest" does not mean there isn't a major issue that needs attention.

What does that have to do with what the thin blue line stands for. You need to school yourself, before you comment next time on something.

The police are paid for by all of us. He realizes the blue line has evolved from its original meaning to being more an F-U to half the population who believe there is still a major racial divide here.

How Ridiculous! Our society has more serious things to worry about. Enough already. We need to HONOR our Police, not defund and attack them.

As a 31 year LE veteran, I am saddened that Chief Krantz is only listening to the small % of people that consumed the most oxygen. What’s next chief guns, badges, American flags?

You don’t have enough space for me to say why I support the thin blue line, but the most is to show respect for LE. Shame on you Chief, What’s next the American flag above your Police Department?

Great comment! Maybe the Bend PD should be issued Whiffle Bats instead. The BPD needs to stop caving to the people with nose rings.

The majority of citizens Support the Thin Blue Line and yet you New Guy (police chief) go with those who want to re-imagine the BPD. What's wrong with this picture??? Don't bring your PDX values here

Newbie police chief caves to political correctness. He doesn't stand for fallen law enforcement officers, why should anyone stand for him? What's next? No displaying the American flag?

Just shows that Bend is becoming like Portland and racist.BLM. LGBQT flags and apparel is fine. The police should be able to display support on their cars. Sad to see Bend going in this direction.

A stunningly poor decision. Looks like Krantz is bringing dangerous Portland liberal ideology to Bend. Please pray with me for all the outstanding law enforcement personnel in our area. They need it!

I'd like to know specific personal examples of the division the Chief stated the blue line created. It seems, he created division by removing the blue line. Leave it to a chief from PDX to do this.

That thin blue line symbolically represents our support and when Chief Krantz had it ripped off the patrol cars today, he threw it back in our faces. He will regret this come the day he needs us!

If our BPD thinks that removing the blue line from their vehicles offends certain groups, then I'm offended by their wording on their cars that states "Protects and Serves."

It is disrespectful to the first responders who serve, and to those who have died. I never thought it was divisive, it is a show of respect and support for first responders.

Maybe consider adding the BLM logo to all your patrol vehicles. This is a disrespect to all law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty. Stop listening to those with nose rings.

In this poll, 86% do not support the removal of the blue line. So I would assume a fair poll, not on a liberal news site, it would be more like 99% I have to question where our police actually stand.

I am disappointed that the police chief has decided to not honor those in law enforcement by removing this symbol. We should educate as to what it symbolizes vs. remove due to a small uneducated group

I don't get it. They did this to themselves? And they still leave the blue line on the backs of the cars? Such a needless exercise.

It’s not the prices of fuel, it’s the bozo in the White House causing all of the chaos facing our nation. I wish our media outlets actually covered the real news instead boosting this post turtle even further. Nobody knows how the turtle got on the post but somebody put him there. We’re all F$&ked.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

Glad my son in law decided to get vaccinated. I dont want to be around unvaccinated "health care" workers. Neither do I want to be around unvaccinated police and fire who I pay to serve and "protect". Glad, too, that teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated.

No I don't, however, I don't believe anyone should need a mandate to do the right thing. Through the years Americans have come together when needed to bring the country through events like this. Those that continue to cause deaths, shorthanded medical services and tumbling stock market for what?

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
