CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As Back the Blue N.C. raises funds for the families of four officers killed while they were trying to serve a warrant at an east Charlotte home Monday, the group's leader is calling for reform.  

"I would say our judicial system definitely needs to change," CEO Lindsay LiCausi said on WCNC Charlotte's Flashpoint.

LiCausi said violent offenders are being let out of jail too often, posing a threat to neighborhoods and police officers. 

"We need to see stricter penalties for these sorts of individuals, especially dangerous felons in possession of firearms," LiCausi said. 

This week, LiCausi's organization lead the effort to raise money to support the families of the fallen officers.

"Typically, we're used to just dealing with one or two families at a time. But in this case, we have four families that have been affected by a line-of-duty deaths. And that leaves behind four spouses and, in total, eight children that we need to step up and assess," she said.

Donations can be made through our GoFundMe or by check to:

Back The Blue NC, Inc.

P.O. Box 78

*100% of proceeds will go to supporting the four surviving families.
