Nike’s Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Triggers Calls for Boycott

( — Sneaker and sportswear giant Nike and their subsidiary company Converse had their second annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on May 13. Police officers all over the country were able to receive 30% off their purchases at the companies’ retail stores. All the officers had to do was flash their badges at the register. According to a flyer circulating on social media, the initiative was part of National Police Week.

There is nothing new about companies offering discounts to military and law enforcement. Multi-billion dollar corporations and mom and pop stores alike have been offering freebies and discounts to the boys in blue (and camouflage) for ages. However, some were disturbed by the timing of this celebration.
