The news is out: [HINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — The firefighters’ union in a Boston suburb is refusing their chief’s order to remove Thin Blue Line flags from firetrucks.
Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy and police Chief Glenn Olsson say the flags — black and white versions of the U.S. flag with one blue stripe that show support for police — violate the town’s ban on political messages on town property, The Patriot Ledger reported.
The chiefs say someone complained about the flags.
The flags are often seen at Back the Blue and Blue Lives Matter demonstrations, that have developed in response to Black Lives Matter protests that call for defunding police departments.]
The firefighters and the cops were working together beating and violating the Constitutional rights of the civil rights leaders. Whether the idiots know it or not, adding a blue line or anything else is a desecration of the US flag. By the way, these are public servants.
