Security Guards Ordered to Remove Pro-Police Patch Donned Post-Terror Attack

(Before It's News)

Security guards for University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust in Britain were ordered to remove Union flag badges they donned to show solidarity with police, post-Westminster Palace terror attack, because it is offensive to some.

Or, more specifically — offensive to one. Somebody made an anonymous complaint, and the pro-police patches have to go.

Security guards were told to take off the pro-police patch — that it’s offensive.

The badges are similar in style to those sold by the charity Care of Police Survivors, a group that provides aid and comfort to family members who lost a loved one serving in the field of law enforcement.

And they became popular additions to police uniforms after the March 23 radical Islam terror attack at Westminster that left police officer Keith Palmer dead.

But now, someone’s complained, and the badges have to go.

As the Bristol Post reported:

“The badges have been a recent thing,’ confirmed the Bristol Post source. ‘The security guards got new stab vests that had Velcro on them and so decided to get the badges.’ they said.

“‘It is an insult to the British people that they are having to be taken off.

“‘All the security staff are upset about it and cannot quite believe there has been a complaint.

“‘The staff are doing their best for everyone in the hospital, trying to keep people safe and a complaint like this is made.

“‘Personally I find it offensive that someone is offended that much by the Union Jack.’”
