    How the hell is the Don't Tread on Me decal "offensive"?! It goes back to the beginning of our country's history, before stars and stripes were even thought of. People have lost their minds!

    People are genuinely afraid that the existence of the thin blue line flag is going to replace the American flag or that it’s disrespectful and I’ve lost all faith in this country’s populous, it’s just a symbol for officers to have it’s not a conspiracy or anything. We have way more pressing matters to attend to in this country then the color configurations on a variation of a flag.

    So this is what citizens are complaining about. I’m almost sure there is a lot more things that officers are doing that actually warrant a complaint

    I really think this is going overboard. I don't see changing one strip in the flag should draw a complaint. I do know the flag code. However if you are going to complain about the police flag,. Then you should be complaining about all uses of the flag in clothes, hats and everything else the flag is used on incorrectly. If you are going to complain own it. Use your name. To often one or two complain,. Then everything changes just to make them happy. Total BS .

    I think officers should be able to customize there cars (with limits of course) but its just makes them seem more human which civilian feel more comfortable around normal humans.

    The only thing I can see wrong with it is it’s extremely disrespectful to the American flag but whatever tons of Americans do the same thing by painting it on things or wearing it on a t shirt .. so I don’t get the big deal unless you gonna be mad about all of it smh I hate this victim culture I worry there are no more men in this world

    It's stupid. If I had a company car because I worked for say… Jamba Juice or something, I'd never think I could put my own stickers on it. That's stupid.

    Is this a joke? Are the people actors? People are so God damn sensitive now. Oh my God an police car has a thin blue line decal on it. The person complaining probably has no clue what it represents but wanted to be an asshole. Mission accomplished

    Cops are gang scum. No gang scum stickers or signs on the tax paid cruisers. Should be run very strictly like the military. No Blue Gang Thin Line Symbols….

    Our family is Law Enforcement and Military, through and through, as well a Gold Star Family, having lost 2 soldiers within 18 months, recently. Blues lives have always mattered and so does the reverence, respect and beauty of Old Glory. The American flag means many things to many people. Our family has always been repulsed by the poorly altered blue line flag and know it is a desecration. We also feel whoever created the blue line flag invested not a drop of time to create a unique, individual image but manipulated an already existing image. Also it is not trademarked and no care is given to how the image it's uses or who manufactures it so, China can / could produce the flag.

    There is a flag that was uniquely created to represent ALL First Responders and Community Servants and it is the HONOR and SACRIFICE flag. The non-profit organization ceremonially presents personalized flags to the Fallen Hero Families. Here is a video explaining the HONOR and SACRIFICE flag that is a much preferred alternative:

    You will find much more time and thought went into creating a flag to uniquely represent fallen Law Enforcement, while keep in the American flag honored, sacred and intact.

    Our public & national mission of Honor will never waver, to those public servants who stand in the gap preserving the rule of law and our personal safety, they will never be forgotten. The Honor and Sacrifice Flag was first unveiled on the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, this flag was developed specifically to honor the sacrifices of Fallen First Responder men & women, of America.

    From their website HONORandSACRIFICE.org they share the Flag Symbolism:

    "The Blue Field" symbolizes nationally the law enforcement community.

    "The Purple Field" respectfully signifies mourning for a loss in the firefighter community.

    "The White Field" recognizes the purity of heart within each individual who serves and protects and is willing to face each day’s challenges regardless of risk.

    "The Black Star" represents those who wear the distinctive badge including sheriff and marshal services.

    "The Red Maltese Cross" recognizes all who have fallen in the emergency response communities.

    "The Gold Shield" recognizes all law enforcement and other public safety representatives who wear the shield, including EMT and have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Gold reflects the value of the life given.

    "The Folded Flag" signifies the final tribute to an individual life that a family has lost for the sake of others.

    "The Flame" is an eternal reminder of the spirit that has departed this life yet burns on in the memory of all who knew and loved the fallen hero.

    Cops should be allowed to put the thin blue line flag on their cars. What could possibly be wrong with flying a flag that has been flown at numerous bootlicking white nationalist rallies. Cops are fascists anyways, so let them fly the bootlick flag.

    Blue feelings matter, okay people?

    We need to protect snowflakes with a badge and a gun feeling's. They might shoot you if they're having a bad day.

    Idk how this is news. As stupid it is. It makes sense. This isn't their car. It's the state's (or maybe do to homeland security, federal governments) car. Organizations such as this stick to uniformity. They can't alter their uniform however they please either. Put those plates and stickers on their personal cars

    In 2:01 they have an American flag on a vehicle so I guess that's a disrespect to American people it doesn't make sense those people who complain have nothing to do so the only thing they do is complain about flags being on a car or tags.

    I can see why a lot of people can see the thin blue line flag as a desecration to the American flag. It alters the Red White and Blue Flag that represents an entire nation of people under one flag. You don’t see the military flying their own special colors. It’s a very sensitive subject.

    First of all the thin blue line flag doesn’t violate the law according to many case laws the Supreme Court ruled that the code that the thin blue line flag ‘violates’ is a act of freedom of speech there isn’t enforceable

    the only way to stop complains and still use stickers or something is to use some pro Hillary or pro Sanders themes.. maybe even anti-fa stickers.. nobody would be offended. guaranteed.

    The defaced, discolored American with a blue line is a violation of the US Flag Code. The police, of all people, should honor the real American Flag by obeying the code.
