BARRETT TOWNSHIP -- The manhunt for Eric Frein is over in the Poconos and out of that effort, the community stepped up to help the police who serve and protect.

A group in Monroe County sold t-shirts emblazoned with the words: Barret Proud, raising money to pay for bullet proof vests for the township's police department.

A check for roughly $7,000 was given to the Barrett Township police chief Sunday afternoon at the township fire station.

Organizers said they sold more than 400 shirts and will keep doing it to help the officers who played a role in that massive search for the alleged cop killer.

"It is a good feeling to raise this money and it's a better feeling to know that it's finally over and people can go back to normal and have better times in this community," said organizer Shannon Price.

The Barrett Township Police Department already purchased those vests that protect against higher caliber ammunition. The money raised from the shirt sales will help pay the department back.

    Yes, worship the jackbooted stormtroopers on PC, media-conditioned trigger.

    Pathetic.

    The “Law Enforcement” paramilitary, brotherhood cult terrorizes and puts the whole area in great danger (of being killed by them), acts as if they can put the whole county into house arrest, point guns at anyone they please, and run up a $11million dollar bill that they will stick the taxpayers with. Then to top it off expect SOP praise and worship from “the community”, and then fundraisers to buy them more of their stuff.

    This whole incident wasn’t about Frein, it was about these LE Psychos and the threat THEY pose to society.
