Lets help Officer Decker!
Officer Brian Decker of the Virginia Beach Police Department, Marine Patrol, is vocally prejudiced against surfing. A direct quote from him on 7/1/15: "Ive been in this battle for 11 years with you surfers. If you've known one, you've known them all. They're all deadbeats."
Virginia Beach is a surfing-centric town. Our mayor is a surfer. We house the oldest surfing contest in the US. It is a significant revenue source for the city of Virginia Beach. Our hope is that he will learn to surf with us and perhaps see surfing in a different light, which would ultimately lead to more objective and non-prejudiced law enforcement.
Officer Brian Decker, must choose one of the following to help him mitigate his misinformed prejudice against surfers and surfing at large.
1. Anger management course/Anti-discrimination course
2. Free surf lessons for a week
**In order to gain respect we have to give respect**
