Outrageous Wives of MA Police Officers Ordered to Remove Blue Ribbons from Trees
A Massachusetts town decided that blue ribbons - tied around trees in a show of support for law enforcement - will be removed following complaints, Boston's FOX 25 reported.
The ribbons were placed around trees in Royalston on August 30 by the wives of Massachusetts State Troopers, who said they just wanted officers in the community to know "we are one huge family."
The women said they received a verbal OK from a town official before the event, which was attended by law enforcement and their families.
They planned to take them down after one month.
But two residents complained to the town's select board, which agreed to only allow a two-week permit until Sept. 9.
One of the residents was reportedly upset that the ribbons were allowed without an official permit.
Residents who disagree with the decision are planning to hold a rally at the next board meeting, Sept. 20.
