The photograph is of 22-year-old Davis police officer Natalie Corona, who was gunned down on January 11 while responding to a car crash.
Corona posted photos of herself on social media holding the Thin Blue Line flag in 2016, with the caption, “I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all of those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country.”
Since her death, many have circulated the image as a way to honor the fallen officer, which is disturbing to some snowflake students at UC Davis.
Fox reports that in a now-deleted Facebook post, the Associated Students, UC-Davis Ethnic and Cultural Affairs Commission wrote, “The flag is blatantly anti-Black and disrespectful.”
“We see it necessary to call-out all community members who continue to post and disseminate images of the Blue Lives Matter flag online. We would like to directly address that this flag represents an attempt by law enforcement to undermine the Black Lives Matter movement.”
The commission also offered help for students “triggered by this event and the circulating images of a flag that has been popularized by the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ crowd.”
They wrote that “flashing lights, sirens and increased police presence” can trigger “black and brown people.”
