A 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.

SoCal wimps are "scared' of the American Flag as too "aggressive", "Folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents", "unintended consequences", "might worry the area's immigrants", "cop cars having American flags on them”.

These people are psychotic.

Only in a Mexican colony like CA would the US flag be thought to be “too aggressive”.

It happens on the East Coast also. Emory University made a student take down an American flag because they said it might be intimidating to foreign born students.

Patrol cars, as far as I remember, always had the U.S. flag on them to some effect.

They sure did report it, but they called the lettering “American flags” instead of what it is. And they piled on the left-wing slant extra thick.

If we could only view but no be included in thier fantasy world down the road, they get what they longed for everything for free gays lesbians transgender Muslims blacks and illegals controlling everything. The end result is something like any third world sh## hole today, either the Muslims are in control and chopping off their little white privileged heads, the blacks are in control and the snowflakes are now on their plantations or the illegal alien drug gangs are trafficking them as slaves to either group. I guess they cant see beyond their defiant arrogant stupid ideology until its to late. Unfortunately we will be dragged into it with them if it ever comes to pass and only if we allow the low percentage of these minorities to run shotgun over the majority in this country which is......you guessed it “white”

Up until a few years ago, I remember that too. PC’s in the York area don’t, anymore.

I remember when a cops uniform also had a flag on it. Not sure if they still do.

Ahhhhh, the wonders of socialism/communism.

I much prefer a “Blade Runner” society to that, where we hunt them down and kill all of them as “Replicants”.

Little-by-little, every second/minute/hour/day/week/month/year, something of our Republic is attacked and destroyed/hidden from us. A breaking point is coming soon, I hope. “America is at that awkward stage; it's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” ― Claire Wolfe

Easy solution: Deport everyone who doesn’t like it.

I *think* American citizens can't be deported.

Deport the foreigners who object. Exile the citizens who object.

Five years in Venezuela or Somalia might improve their perspective...

Laguna Beach is not like the rest of Orange County. Its culture is more like that of West Hollywood or Provincetown, Mass.--I need not say more.

The Laguna Police should buy a bunch of One Way Bus tickets to Mexico and hand one to every little bitch that complains. Here is a Ticket to Mexico, MOVE THERE!!!

Do the police patrol cars still have an American Flag on them?

“Folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents,” designer Chris Prelitz observed.

IMO more likely that people thought it was SWAT or Feds because the car color is black.

It is really hard to see how people can object to the American flag. If they do, maybe they should leave.
