The Kentucky councilman who criticized the Catlettsburg Police Department for the Blue Lives Matter “Punisher” logos on their patrol cars is now one of three people facing charges in a drug-trafficking investigation.

37-year-old Richard Brown was arrested over the weekend along with Tammy and Stephen Salyers, both 53, on charges of Drug Trafficking.

A member of a six-person city council, Brown made the news last month when he objected to the large Punisher skull-themed “Blue Lives Matter”l decals, which were designed with the intent of supporting law enforcement.

City Police Chief Cameron Logan had the decals removed following the backlash, but was sad to see them go.

“That design is basically to give back to the police officers,” Logan, who has been with the department for 13 years, said before reversing course on the emblems. “Our lives matter just as much as anybody’s. … I’m not racist or anything like that, I’m not trying to stir anything up like that. I consider it to be a ‘warrior logo.’ Just cause it has ‘Blue Lives Matter’ on the hood, all lives matter. That decal represents that we will take any means necessary to keep our community safe.”

Brown, who grew up in Catlettsburg and whose family owns the town grocery store was charged with trafficking a controlled substance (which police say was meth), as well as trafficking within 1,000 feet of a school zone, possession and paraphernalia charges.

Kentucky.com reports that Brown is currently scheduled to be arraigned on the 27th of March.

  1. Do these morons know that Frank Castle became the Punisher because of a combination of Police Corruption and Police Incompetence?

  2. im 99 percent sure these are trumped up charges done in retaliation by the corrupt police department

  3. Shortly after a tour in Vietnam, Castle, his wife, Maria and their children were in New York’s Central Park for an afternoon picnic when they witnessed a Mafia gangland execution; an informant had been hanged from a tree. Seeking to eliminate all witnesses, the Costa crime family murdered them on the spot. However, Castle survived. Even though Frank was able to identify all of the shooters the police were unable to help Castle in his quest for justice; THEY WERE TIED IN TOO DEEPLY TO THE POWERFUL COSTA FAMILY. He decided that the only punishment criminals might receive is that of physical destruction. Shortly thereafter, he emblazoned his body armor with a symbol of a death’s head, and exacted his revenge. Since then he has waged a one-man war upon crime, taking the name Punisher.


  4. As a retired L.E.O., a veteran, a conservative and a thinking human being I fail to see how a logo of a skull that is referred to as the “Punisher” is an appropriate statement for our police to make. If I were this councilman arrested for drug charges I would claim it was a set up by a pissed off police dept. Perhaps it is indeed a setup in retaliation for his forcing the P.D. to remove the stickers. I worked for a Rinky Dink P.O.S. police dept. and saw the horrible and illegal things they did.

  5. It appears that our society today places too much emphasis on comic book characters. There is an increasing “blur” between reality and what some wish they were. None of this bullshlt should be adopted as emblems for a police department.
