Somebody needs to tell the Blue Lives Matter/Back The Blue people that ;IGY6 is about PTSD awareness, not for whatever bullshit cause you want to support. The semi-colon alone should've told you that.
IGY6 stands for I Got Your Six.

The semicolon is from Project Semicolon. When a sentence and is at the point of ending it, but you want to continue, you can use a semicolon. It creates a pause, a reconsideration of the cessation of a sentence, or in this case, your life.
The colors also carry a meaning.

Teal is for PTSD awareness, black is for the heavy hearts that many of us carry, those who suffer from PTSD and those who have lost loved ones to suicide because of PTSD. The red is a symbol of the blood that has been shed.
So when you combine it all together, it is a way of saying that if you are thinking about taking your life, PAUSE, it is not time to end it, I got your back and will help you through it and stand by your side.

If you ever see someone wearing it, know that they will help you.
This shit right here bastardizes it, it's not about the fucking police, it's about PTSD and suicide prevention. FFS, get your own symbol, assholes.
