Vandals destroy disabled veterans truck & spray paint “F**K your flag” for showing police support

The Lattin Family Truck

18-year-old Jason Lattin, would one day like to become a police officer. When he and his family started showing support for law enforcement officers nationwide during the week of 9/11 they became the target of hate.

Jason’s father, Scott, is a disabled Army veteran and former security professional.

Aside from the blue ribbons they hung on the fence outside their North Texas home, the Lattin family also wanted to show support by painting on the back window of their truck:  “Police lives matter.”

Shortly after, their family truck was totaled by vandals — the glove box torn off, seats ripped up, and the vehicle made undriveable.

A laptop and scanner were also stolen from the inside of the truck. On the outside, the vandals spray-painted anti-cop profanities and “Black Lives Matter,” according to

The crime has the markings of a national movement that’s fueled by hate for law enforcement. The letters ‘FYF’ scrawled all over the truck also.  Those letters stand for “F*ck your flag” — a message that Black Lives Matter activists have been spreading all over social media ahead of the anniversary of 9/11.

Scott told Fox4 News the following:  “Engage me in a dialogue. Don’t destroy my stuff; it’s the only truck we have and because of this, it’s totaled now…I firmly believe black lives matter, white lives matter, police lives matter. Yes, absolutely.”

A Whitney police officer suggested that those behind the vandalism might be kids and said, “It is still troubling”.

They caused $5,000 worth of damage.

Jason says this incident will not deter him… his desire to become a cop is now even stronger.
