American Flag on Police Car Considered TOO AGGRESSIVE

LA Times-

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.”

Artist Carrie Woodburn went to the podium at the March 19 council meeting and said it was “shocking to see the boldness of the design” when the newly painted Ford Explorers rolled out.


In order to not make illegals feel uncomfortable, why don’t we switch to the Mexican flag and call our country Mexico?

(Sadly, leftists would vote for this idea. they must be eradicated.)

  1. I’ll be honest about it. I think that is a desecration of the American Flag. It’s excessive. No need for it. If they want to put an American Flag decal on the car, fine. But this is bullshit! Back during the Vietnam War protests we had to fight to even put a flag lapel pin on our uniforms. Calm down Laguna Beach PD. It’s not necessary. It’s over done, expensive, and pure bullshit.

  2. I don’t see it as an American flag. I’m seeing a flag-like decoration, which, though attractive, is probably not formal enough or professionally appropriate for a low-level, government entity. But it is a free country…


  3. If they don’t like anything about our flag they’re always welcome to GTFO. Go someplace in the world where our flag is not displayed. Like Venezuela or North Korea.. Ass holes.

  4. It’s Bullshit. Cops don’t need to blast out patriotism. Just do your job. Americans need to support their Police Most assholes don’t support their police. Fancy fucking Police cars are not the fucking answer.
    Go FO.

  5. Laguna Beach is 3 miles from my home. I can readily believe that half of the population hates the American flag.

    The Laguna Beach HS team name is the “Artists”. Nuff said.

    No, they don’t especially need to blast out patriotism. But there is nothing wrong with them doing so. Most fire trucks around here fly big American flags. I think that is great.

  7. A multigenerational Cali aAmerican Professor ( FSU Bulldogs from 80s to end of century) has been very critical of the Bush/Brown UNIPARTY out here. He talks not about changing flags bur renaming the Kern Valley the SJ Valley. His book (IMHO not nearly as well read as it should be IM LOOKING AT YOU DAN why have you not read Vic;s book.) is MEXIFORNIA. VDH is the writer.

    I think (hope) your remark was facetious. but the Bush/Brown men are Hell bent on making Cal part of Mexico!

    If you live in the East what the UNIPARTY has done in Cal the last 50 years – to you- matters not. but when they get done here you my be next!
