Tonight in a city council meeting a vote will be taken, a silly vote, in my opinion. Whether or not to allow the freshly painted police cruisers in Laguna Beach, California to remain or to be repainted. You see, the new graphic contains the American flag. The symbol of freedom. However, there is controversy about whether our flag should be on police cars as some see it as hostile, intimidating, or a sign of racism.
Stay tuned to see what the decision is on Old Glory after tonight’s meeting.
UPDATE: Last night the city of Laguna Beach voted to keep the American flag on their police cars after some in the community complained that it was intimidating to immigrants. In a crowded chamber the yea’s overwhelmingly took the vote.
Stay or Go? Some don’t like Laguna Beach’s patriotic logo on the #police cars and motorcycles- What about you? I’m live at 4:30 KCAL and 5p @cbsla #cbsla @LBPD_PIO_45 #lagunabeach #americanflag pic.twitter.com/2DGob0FFBm
