  • Laguna Beach city councilman says the US flag is too aggressive

    Putting American flags on police cars sparks backlash in Laguna Beach

    Unbelievable!

    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.

      They're not saying the flag is aggressive; they're saying the flag motif graphic is aggressive. I'm not sure I like the graphic, but then, I'm not in Laguna Beach.

            Yes, but they are henceforth referred to as "Lagunatic Asylums".

            Frankly, I find a vehicle with lights, sirens and weapons driven by an armed person licensed to kill to be "overly aggressive". Should give them bumper cars, clown suits and water pistols.

              The Far-Left don't like the flag, the Constitution, Democracy whenever a vote goes against them, or most of the people living here.

              They are the enemy within, the 5th Column of the 21st century.

                  Heaven forbid we offend an illegal criminal.
                  My worst jump story:
                  My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                  As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                  No lie.

                          Opponents of the American flag being displayed wouldn’t object to a Mexican flag or a burning American flag being displayed instead.

                              As usual, the Far Left uses the excuse provided by one to abuse the freedoms of many millions.
