The thin blue line


Members of the Kennebunk Police Department pose with 14-year-old Phillip Rossborough (center) and the "thin blue line" bracelets he made using money he saved from odd jobs done over the summer to buy materials, to show his appreciation for all they do following recent shootings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rogue. Standing outside the police station September 2 are, first row, from left, Sgt. Andy Belisle, Community Service Office Ashley Derochers, Rossborough, Animal Control Officer Rebecca Parker, and Officer Jason McClure; and, back row, from left, Officer Tom Arnold, Det. Stephen Borst, Deputy Chief Michael Nugent, and Officer Michael Tucci. "Things like this certainly go a long way toward making us feel a little better, given some of the discontent and unhappiness going on nationwide," Nugent said. "It's easy to find young people these days who are suspicions and even outright hostile toward police officers, so, to be honored by a great young man like this really means a lot."
