In the wake of the shootings in Dallas on Thursday, July 7, Trumbull resident Shannon Pranger decided to make a cake for the Trumbull Police Department.

“I felt very powerless,” she told The Times. She posted an image of the cake on Facebook “to ease my heavy heart” and, in less than one hour, accumulated 150 “likes” from citizens who wanted to show their support of the local law enforcement.

“I want the police to know how much support they have and thought this might be a good forum to do so,” Pranger said.
