Some good news
When they reset up their stand for the first time, more than a dozen officers from the Peoria Police Department came by to support them.
‘I may have cried a little,’ Jude’s father Nathan said, according to the PJ Star.
‘Our hearts are overwhelmed by the love and support of the community – people from totally different backgrounds, police, everyone – all rallying around these boys.’
