Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 14, 2019

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."

Crazy, but not as crazy as 1970. I have fond memories of Laguna Beach in the 70s. You could hang around the Taco Bell on pacific coast highway and get offered acid, weed, mescaline, etc., in about 5 minutes. Good times.

I suppose ... but we are only at the beginning.....

Up here, I see more Mexico flags flying on trucks than American.

We aren't done.

Nothing sez "America" more than cops in fast cars with guns and flags, ready to serve and protect the military industrial complex and the national security state.

If you don't like that, don't call them when you get assulted or robbed.
