Ron Luke came up with the idea. His niece, Suzanne, was happy to help with the baking. With hostility and attacks towards law enforcement around the country in recent months, the Lukes say it's more important than ever to show support.

"Ain't nobody deserves to be shot at or belittled like that," said Ron Luke.

Hoping to surprise the West Milwaukee Police Chief, they head into the police department to drop off a hand-painted sign and baked goods.
