'His Life Matters' Police Photo Goes Viral
After two Texas officers wrote "his life matters" on their hands and posed for a photo, they received national attention and appeared on Fox.By Newsy Staff | August 13, 2015
Back in May, two officers from the Texas city of Trinity posed for this photo. It got some attention, with about 400 favorites and retweets.
A little over three months later, it was picked up by the American Conservatives of Color Facebook group, which landed it more than 115,000 shares and 25,000 likes.
The photo was a response to the Black Lives Matter movement, which has been critical of law enforcement personnel in the wake of the highly publicized deaths of black Americans, like Micheal Brown, Tamir Rice and Samuel DuBose.
