justyourbasicpumpkinluvr :  I had never heard of this, but a quick google search tells me it is a thing.  I dunno, if your husband doesn’t care then go for it, but I guess it is a bit weird.

I feel like he can wear a ring that supports law enforcement and not be a police officer…

Some professions do have rings worn just for them. Like engineers and I guess police officers. I say keep the popo ring.

 I say keep it. Maybe it’ll get him out of a ticket sometime.

i would do a bit more research.

i wouldn’t want to be disrespectful, like someone wearing army fatigues who has not been in the military just to get discounts and thanked.

I’ve never heard of that myself. I think its a personal choice.

I say wear it. It’s not super noticeable, and if he likes it, that’s all that matters. I don’t think it’s the same as wearing a fake police officer outfit or anything like that. I also think people have heightened sensitivity to blue lives matter right now because of current events in the US. I would assume that in a few years, it won’t be as top of mind for people. Not to say supporting police officers won’t be top of mind, just the specific ‘blue lives matter’ quote.

I’ve never heard of this.  Just looks like a black ring with a blue strip to me.  A design color choice.  Im sure you can find the same with any other color.

Thin blue line with black… Its showing support for police. It dorsnt mean you are police.

I have never heard of that. I think that the ring just happens to look like the police officer symbol. I DOUBT that this particular style of ring was designed specifically for that purpose. I also think if it was, the jeweler might have mentioned it.

I think if that were the case, you wouldn’t be allowed to purchase it without documented proof.

justyourbasicpumpkinluvr :  So I was walking around the neighborhood and saw this flag. It was black & white with one blue stripe. I googled it and it was called a “blue lives matter” flag.

I get the sense this ring is the same idea. It doesn’t mean he IS a police officer, just that he supports them. 

As long as he’s comfortable with the symbolism I think it should be fine

If he likes it, he should buy it and wear it. Like you said, it’s barely noticeable. Thin blue line is definitely a cop thing, but this is so minor I can’t imagine it would ever be an issue.
