A photo of a Ukrainian Police Officer wearing a "Don't Mess With Texas" patch given to him while training the Houston Police Department has gone viral:

Randy Upton, a recently retired Houston Police Officer expressed his confidence that the Ukrainian Police have the skills they need to get into the fight protecting their homeland.

"We’ve taught them a lot of tactical training,... Firearms training, a lot of crowd control training, and critical thinking. I’d like to believe that’s helping out right now."

Upton and multiple other Houston Police Officers visited Ukraine and trained with their Police Officers over a 6 year period starting back in 2016. The two groups have developed deep bonds of friendship.

The Ukrainian Police Officer in the image with the Houston Patch is a friend of Randy's and they stay in contact regularly.

  1. I can't see to make comment due to the non stop ads that cover the content. I could barely read the articke.

  2. The Ukraine people KNOW how to fight, because they are fighting for their lives. The thing that is needed most is, SOMETHING TO FIGHT WITH. Before Putin controls Ukraine air-space, we need to air drop supplies & hardware right into the hands of the Ukraine people fighting against the invasion of THEIR country. I don't think that Putin would be stupid enough to shoot down a US. plane which is (not landing), but just air-dropping supplies.

  3. A lot of good things from America citizens has helped Ukraine, but unfortunately a lot more bad things from American government like the DOD BIO LABS have hurt them too !!!!!!!!!!

  4. Maybe someone needs to make a patch that says, "Don't Mess with the Ukraine" and send them over there! Keep up the fight!

  5. Love our police officer in the states, my daughter and son-in-law are cops and prayers for the Ukraine people and their police.

  6. They are more good guys with guns! The only way to stop bad guys with guns!! I'm a Texan and we love our guns!

  7. Nice job of supporting the Deep State agenda that is now killing their own people. This has now been reported by a reporter that is in Ukraine.
