A Mississippi police chief decided to use his own money to add the slogan "All Lives Matter" to the bumpers of all of his department's patrol vehicles in an effort to promote unity.
Edwards, MS Police Chief Torrence Mayfield said that his department would like to emphasize that, "all lives should matter and nothing warrants police officers' lives lost. We want this to resonate far and abroad. Everywhere. All communities should embrace this."
Chief Mayfield added, "I sympathize with those who have lost their lives after incidents with police. And I also sympathize with my brothers in blue that put on a badge and hope and pray that they are able to go home to their families at the end of the day."
