Citizens Complain Police Cars' American Flag Logos Are 'Too Aggressive'

Laguna Beach City Council considering taking off American flag design from police cars after some criticize it.

Laguna Beach, CA – The Laguna Beach City Council may take off an American flag graphic that was added to the city’s police cars over complaints that the flag design was too aggressive.

City officials agreed to reconsider the decision to label the fleet of 11 police cars with the design, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“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, according to the Los Angeles Times. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

Artist Carrie Woodburn said at the March 19 council meeting it was “shocking to see the boldness of the design,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We have such an amazing community of artists here, and I thought the aesthetic didn’t really represent our community. It feels very aggressive,” she said.

Attorney Jennifer Welsh Zeiter said at a council meeting she found the police cars “exceptional.” She questioned the loyalty of the critics of the design.

“They are so filled with hatred toward this ... office of the president of the United States and the current occupant of that office, that they cannot see through their current biases to realize that a police vehicle with the American flag is the ultimate American expression,” Zeiter said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Laguna Beach Police Corporal Ryan Hotchkiss, who is president of the Laguna Beach Police Employees Association, said he has only heard good things about the flag design.

“Every time I came to a stop sign, every time I came to a red light, somebody is telling me the car looks great,” Hotchkiss said at the March city council meeting, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Every one of our members that drives the car loves it, and we look forward to keeping them the way they are.”

When the Laguna Beach Police Department posted the new design on its Facebook page on March 3, there was little reaction. The post received just five comments, four of which were positive.

“The paint looks great. This is America. Love it or leave it,” Jatt Mungers wrote on the police Facebook page.

“Sorry to say this but I don’t like this color at all!” Kris Howson posted, the only negative comment on the police’s post.

Too bad leave those logos on ,they represent this country and it is just too bad if it hurts an illegal or visitors feelings...I will not go to another country to complain about how they want things and they don't have a right to come here to complain either...If they do not like their feelings hurt they can go back to where they are from.

This is the United States, and that is a rendition of our flag. If this bothers you, maybe i's time you moved to a country that fits your description of a good place to live.

Since when does the community dictate what type of color the police use on their vehicles? Is that the best they got? Really?

I really don't care whether visitors or illegal immigrants like the design on the police cars. Visitors can leave at any time and immigrants have no right to say anything since they are not legal citizens of this great country.

LB city council should simply say, "Objection noted, thank you", and go about its business. Sadly, they'll probably bow to the wishes of the vast minority, because feelings.

It figures that "immigrants" (illegals), would be opposed to this design.

It represents this Nation's flag and either you swear allegiance to it or you don't and if you don't, you've no business being in my country in the first place and need to get the hell out now.

It doesn't matter if you are an immigrant or not; this is our country and our flag. Most of us were descendants of legal immigrants at one time or another and we choose to respect our country, fight and die for it if asked and love our flag. If it offends anyone, one piece of advice: Don't let the door to my country hit you in the ass as you leave!

When is common sense going to dictate, this is the United States of America, that is our flag, if you don't like our flag, then leave the country, you don't deserve to live here! The mere fact that they are considering it is a direct insult to all of those who lived and died for what that flag stands for.

Time for the City Council of Laguna Beach to stand up for America and paint all the cars to match. "Feelings" are fickle, they change on a whim and they are never stable. Stop relaying on them as a means to make decisions.

Go to your safe spot, sit down and STFU!!!!! If the American flag offends you that much then you just do not belong in this country period!!!! I am so SICK of those city or state leaders who bow down to these POS LIBERAL SNOWFLAKES and ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! Grow a set of balls for god sake and just say NO to anyone who cries bcuz thier little feelings are hurt. Go find a country who gives a fuck about your feelings because I sure as hell don't along with many many many more people who are tired of all this bullshit! ( I don't know whose name this is going to post on there but I would really like my name back which was blue lives matter. Somehow that name got lost and I can't get it back. Please find it and give it back to me)

The flag is part of America. Immigrants who have no intention to assimilate do not belong here. Visitor's feelings do not matter. You don't go into someone's home and expect them to redecorate it to accommodate you and your feelings.

Council thinks "hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors",....tough shit!! Council needs to grow a set and keep the flag design, let the people know that this is America!! There is an old saying "America, love it or leave it". If you're offended then f'n leave and don't look back, we don't want you anyway! Personally if I seen that on any cruiser in the USA, I would thank the officer for driving it.

What a sad commentary. Two punks attacking an older man and no one came to his aid. No one called 911. What and absolute cesspool Chicago is. Those punks probably don’t fear the law, especially with that DA dropping charges on criminals all in the name of evening the score and bringing racial harmony.

OMG! The entire vehicle is aggressive! Look at those big black push bumpers, what are they for if not to push little cars off the road. I bet that is one of those super fast Ford Explorer INTERCEPTORS. OMG all they will do is catch speeders here in beautiful Lagunaaaa Beach. Why don’t they buy some of those cute Priuses and paint them that pussy hat pink and we can all be proud of our police cars.

What we need are 11, 1969 Dodge Polaras with a gas guzzling 440 Magnum V8 capable of hitting 140 along the PCH and a carb that will suck the engine down when those young men stand on it.

Next will be going after Police departments that wear the American flag on the uniform, then badges, too much authority, might scare someone, then of course guns, because we all know that everyone is scared of that! (Sarcasm).....
