US – A&E has cancelled the Live Pd police show in the wake of national protests across the county. Now people are rallying together to bring the event back.
After Paramount Network canceled “Cops” and yesterday controversy over the death of Javier Ambler in Austin, which was captured by the Live Pd show the network decided to pull the plug on the show.
Now a petition on change.org has started backing the police show wanting it back online less than a day after it was cancelled.
The petition says, “We would like you to rethink your decision of canceling Live•PD. The show has showed how police interact with the community & provide the much needed transparency that we the people need! It has made a positive difference in many people’s lives & showed how real police work. I would like MGM’s Big Fish Entertainment to reconsider canceling the show and make any necessary changes to Live•PD to make it feasible for T.V.”
The facebook group starting the petition is called Live PD fans and it has over 32,000 members itself. In a few hours the petition has amassed over 17,000 signatures.
