The flag police at it again
According to the Wauwatosa Patch site, the police department is flying their flags at half-staff in honor of slain officer Jennifer Sebena.
The very first comment underneath the article is someone from the flag police complaining that only the governor and the president can order the flags lowered.
Some people need to get a sense of perspective, especially when half the time the public doesn’t understand when and why the flags are officially down.
(In case anyone is curious, flags were lowered until Sunday by order of President Obama after the death of Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii. The order said, “until sunset on the day of his interment,” but did not specify the day. Between that and people on vacation due to the Christmas holiday, flags can still be seen at half-staff around town.)
