Captain Greg Hopper with the Sugar Land Fire Department knew he wanted to do something after the tragic death of Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth. "I need to find a way to show them that I support them," Hopper told KPRC 2 News. He decided to make decals that reads "I've Got Your Back" to show support for law enforcement. He came up with the idea while listening to the radio on his way home from work two nights ago. "I was getting irritated with all the stuff going on, on the news channel that I was listening to, so I thought I am going to pull into Walmart or a grocery store and just put big letters on the back of my truck that says 'I've got your back', and then I started thinking, wait a minute I am not the only one," he said. It has received overwhelming support here and around the country. KPRC 2 has been contacted on the phone, through email and on Facebook by people who want a decal. Jay Jay wrote, "Getting my decal made this weekend." Hopper hopes whenever law enforcement officers see cars with the decal, they know they are not alone.
