'Incredible' happening isn't even shocking anymore

Blue Lives Matter (banner)A conservative columnist says it didn't pass "the smell test" when a New York school superintendent banned a sweatshirt honoring a fallen police officer while allowing staff to wear Black Lives Matter attire.

Transit Detective George Caccavale was shot in the line of duty in 1976. His daughter, Carla, who was 20 days old when her father was killed at age 33 and now has four children in Pelham's schools, has produced a sweatshirt to honor him – a sweatshirt Pelham Union Free School District Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Champ banned staff from wearing while permitting anti-police Black Lives Matter attire.

"It's constitutionally wrong, and it doesn't pass the smell test of just decency and morality," We Win America spokesman Joe F. Connor submits. "It's … not shocking; it's incredible that this happens in our country."

Because of backlash from parents, Dr. Champ later disallowed staff from wearing BLM attire as well.

"I have a personal feeling about this, too," says Connor in empathy with the fallen officer's daughter. "My father was also killed by leftists. He wasn't a police officer, but he was killed by terrorists in the '70s, so I completely understand what Ms. Caccavale was saying."

In the latest move, the school board has ruled any political speech, including clothing or symbols, is to be permitted.
