Firefighters Ordered to Remove Flag


“A group of firefighters in Riverside County, California wanted to honor police officers killed in Baton Rouge and Dallas. So firefighter Eric Hille decided to display a pro-police flag on one of the fire engines at Sunnymead Ranch Station 48.”

With the recent racial violence across our nation, California firefighters were simply trying to show respect for the law enforcement with a pro-police flag. Sadly, they were ordered to take down this flag on the basis that it could cause a negative response from the rest of the community.

“The following day the fire chief sent an email to the firefighters — telling them the flag had to come down. The type of flag -- while strongly supporting our LE (law enforcement) family -- could increase tension or cause a negative response within the community,” the chief wrote.

When did America become such a violent nation? When did showing respect for our law enforcement become dangerous?

A journalist for Bret Bart explains there has been a spike in murder rates however our current President has tried his best to cover this up,

“Obama is trying to hide the murderous cost of his policing policy by claiming the average murder rate since 2011 is below prior murder rates. His clever phrase, “over the last four or five years …since probably the 1960’s” — buries the dramatic murder spike that has happened since Obama began to criticize state and local police forces after August 2014. The murder spike began after he began his high-profile criticism of police forces just after the African-American urban riots in Ferguson, Mo., and just before the poor African-American turnout allowed the GOP to defeat five Democratic Senators and take control of the U.S. Senate. After the election, Obama blamed his supporters — including African-Americans — for the low-turnout defeat.”

America is in great need of new leaders, willing to fight for the safety of our nation. 

"Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
