Washington DC and The Holy Land>Patriotic patrol-car lettering triggers libs in California city

Scary Patriotic Police car lettering. Just one more thing for the libs to be upset about. :-)

Southern California police department is drawing both praise and ire for the new star-spangled logo on the sides of its patrol vehicles, according to reports.

The Laguna Beach Police Department in Orange County recently added American-flag-style lettering for the word "police" on the sides of the vehicles, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

But local artist Carrie Woodburn told the Times the design was too “aggressive,” saying she felt it didn’t represent the community. Laguna Beach is a city of about 23,000 residents, about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents," designer Chris Prelitz observed. "So it had a very striking, strong impact, so much so that I think there might be some unintended consequences.”

Councilman Peter Blake was surprised by the backlash. He told the newspaper some people were concerned the design might worry the area's immigrants.

People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them,” he said.

Attorney Jennifer Welsh Zeiter said she thought the police cars were “exceptional” and suggested that the opposition might have a political motive. She said some people are so filled with hate toward President Trump “that they cannot see through their current biases to realize that a police vehicle with the American flag is the ultimate American expression.”

The department did acknowledge the design didn’t come out exactly as planned and the city council said it would take up the issue again at their monthly meeting Tuesday.

Laguna Beach Keeping Patriotic Patrol Cars After Debate

LAGUNA BEACH (CBSLA) — The Laguna Beach City Council voted on Tuesday night 4-1 to keep the American flag design on the city’s police vehicles.

Dozens of Laguna Beach residents had lined up to urge city leaders not to remove the American flag logo from the police cars.

“To take that graphic off of that car would break my heart,” a resident told the council.

The Laguna Beach City Council initially approved the American flag lettering for its police department. But after some accused the department of being too aggressive and militaristic, Tuesday night the council voted again.

George Weiss, a retired Marine, was one of the only residents who opposed the red, white and blue lettering. Not because he’s against the American flag, but because he respects it. He says it’s disrespectful to the American flag and goes against the federal guidelines that determine how it should be displayed.

“For example, you see a lot of it even at the beach,” said Weiss. “Hats. Bathing suits. It diminishes the value and respect of the flag.”

The Laguna Beach police say that they got hundreds of emails from all across the country supporting the lettering.

Now they have seven patrol cars with the American flag lettering. In the coming days they are going to put the same logo on their remaining four cars.

While this is good news, I don't think it'll stop the liberal freaks from doing, saying, and live-out their "America Last" agenda.

Seriously? That's your take here?

It's past time for USA flag and anti Socialism stickers for the truck.
