Some people seem to think police officers should not have a break. Those people are wrong, officers should be able to have breaks in the full view of the public without fear.
The Sun shared a picture of Police Officers having cups on tea in the sun and mocked the #ThinBlueLine at the same time.
We all know that the reporter responsible has a history with the cops over his previous conduct.
You only need to do a quick search of google to find out what we mean #ThinWhiteLine

The distasteful article was published at a time when the policing community has pulled together and need the support of each other following the tragic death of Police Constable Keith Palmer.
Police Officers like anyone else are entitled to breaks, and they are entitled to have them at anytime they wish.
We should be supporting these officers having a break in the public eye because if they are already out in the community the instant a 999 blue light run happens they can delpoy much quicker.
Police Officers and high ranking officers have now shared their support for the police team that was snapped.
Simon Cole Chief Constable of Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland said that he fully understood that some days police officers do not even get the chance to take a break.
Colleagues too often don't get a chance for a meal break
When they do it's always good to see them #eatingout , radios on, visible to all

And Dee Collins Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police supported her officers and other cops across the land.
Tweeting that officers and staff should be able to take their break in full view of the public.
Highlighting that this was a great opportunity to engage, chat and listen.

Twitter reacted in the best way it knew how to with #BrewsForBlues
If you see a police officer out in the community then why not buy them a brew and say thanks for all they do.
