Putting American flags on police cars sparks backlash in Laguna Beach

A decision to affix an American flag graphic to the side of freshly painted Laguna Beach police cars is dividing residents who are alternately praising the image as patriotic or panning it as too aggressive.

After hearing the criticism and acknowledging that the image they approved didn’t quite match the final results, officials agreed to reconsider their February decision to paint the Laguna Beach Police Department’s fleet of 11 squad cars. The City Council will take up the issue again at its Tuesday meeting.

“People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another ... hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

American flags flying on Firetrucks must really trigger these morons.

I will NOT comply.

The Laguna Beach City Council voted 4-1 to KEEP the flags, on the cars.

Note that researching this fct, it was hard to find an article that stated the numbers, versus merely saying the vote favored keeping flags.

Apparently a large number of residents lined up outside, to make their feelings known to authorities.

This vote is further evidence that Socialists are pushing too far, too fast for even some liberals.

(Laguna Beach is historically a liberal enclave, in otherwise conservative OC)
