Police in New York are looking for the vandals who cut down a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The police chief of Washingtonville, a village north of New York City, told the Times-Herald Record that vandals used a tool to cut the flagpole about five feet from its base and then scrawled a message on the part left standing. Police discovered the damage early Wednesday and would not disclose the nature of the message.---

Probably something like, “Aloha Snackbar”.

All of this Democrat rioting is good cover.

Painting BLACK LIVES MATTER on a street in front of TRUMP hotel in some childish move.

If there is anything that shows us to question karma or even our faith it’s politicians who help destroy lives getting to live wealthy and usually until they’re 90.

Now I get why people reach to religion..at least you can convince yourself all the unfairness will be dealt with in the after life.

Where was DeBlasio? Probably shaking his head in approval as he watched it from NYC . This took place in Washingtonville, in NY State. Gov. Cuomo would call it “healthy protest” as he did all the other destruction.

Dear World Trade Center,

We promised that we wouldn’t forget but apparently we did. New York is back to the good old bad days again.

I agree. On the flip side, you would not believe how many gutless-wonders here believe in allowing these feral animals to continue the destruction of this country. These days, jail is a joke. Inmates live a better life than the homeless.

This country needs a good dose of tough justice... Pick your poison...

nobody is saying.

Fox has a video report but it’s from a distance so no way to see; it’s a really nice memorial

Fox says the Catholic church down the road was vandalized (sign knocked down) and the flagpole eagle was found there

Times’Herald also saying they’re not disclosing message:

“Tear Down”

Sounds like a possible euphemism for the ending of Leftism in America ...

If the authorities won’t reveal the vandals’ message, and the news media won’t reveal the vandals’ message, some enterprising freeper in the area should go over and take a picture. Before the authorities scrub it off and “lose” their crime scene photographs.
