VIDEO: Texas Community Fights Homeowners Association Over Blue Ribbons Supporting Police

A Texas community, wishing to support local police, is at odds with its homeowners association.

After the recent Dallas police shootings, a resident in Cypresswood tied blue ribbons to trees along the road through his neighborhood. Days later, the homeowners association sent an email to the community asking that the resident come forward and take them down.

"I was born and raised in Cypresswood, I've lived here for 23 years," explained Zachary Karrenbrock, organizer of the ribbon tying event. "I'm a firefighter in the area for 7 and a half years and it was an absolute punch in the throat to see that email."

Karrenbrock said he saw an officer cut down every ribbon on Monday. "So I made contact with the Precinct 4 Commissioner's Office yesterday and found out that these medians in Cypress are public."

Karrenbrock put out a call on Facebook and on a radio show that morning to put the ribbons back up. An estimated 150 people showed up. They expected to place nearly 600 ribbons, Fox News reports.
