I noticed this as well. All police cars also now have a backward american flag on the passengers side. Now, I have heard the lame explanation for this, but it doesnt change the fact that historically speaking a reverse flag is the sign of a nation that has been conquered.

So then, would that be to say half the car thinks the nation is conquered and half doesn't?

Remember how they spoofed the words on the side of one of the decepticons in the transformers movie? I'd imagine for that to be thought of and seen as contemporary, the message would have to exist on squad cars in real life.
Forgive the link...apparently they can't tell a camaro from a mustang:


All else I could find via google was a statement on another forum about the quote being removed from police cars in their area 10 years ago, so maybe it's just one of those things.
Now they don't have to buy new serve and protect stickers every time they replace the rear quarter-panels?

Would be a little foolish to blatantly post reverse flags on both sides of a car, dont you think?

Most people read "To serve and protect" and they assume they are talking about citizens. Reading it as, "To serve and protect... citizens".

This was not ever the case, and today it's more evident than ever. They are here to serve and protect the corporation. Each, state, city, township, county etc are ALL corporations. Police are put in place to protect that corporation, and enforce its policies.

We live in a police state people, they are no longer on our side. America is dead.

So the Police Forces no longer advertise their services as serving and protecting? That's a refeshing bit of honesty from them for a change.

Police cars dont replace quarter panels often. Generally speaking, if damaged, the entire car is replaced, as a police officers vehicle is as important as his gun.

Next guess

Personally I don't buy it.


Army Regulation 670-1, “Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia,” updated most recently September 5, 2003, addresses explicitly the proper and lawful placement of the U.S. flag patch on the Army uniform. The regulation states that when authorized for application to the proper uniform the American flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that “the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward. The appropriate replica for the right shoulder sleeve is identified as the ‘reverse side flag’.”

edit to add: I can't seem to find a date when this was mandated. That might say something.

As Ive said, I have read this explanation. Doesnt change the historical context, however.

I am not saying they are certainly meaning to symbolise a defeated nation, but if they arent, someone certainly dropped the ball in D&R

I am agreeing with you. Why don't they mandate it on the left side so it is always viewed correctly.

Gotcha, sorry, misunderstood what you "weren't buying".

Pretty convenient explanation, huh. And you will not find any article mentioning the flags on cop cars that also mentions the true meaning of a reverse flag.

As stated above All vehicles planes ect displaying the flag the flag should have the stars field front and top . on one side the flag is reversed and the other normal . That is a non issue if you have been around a base with lots of military you will see equipment planes that way on a regular basis for as long as i can remember.

As for the logo change may be they are going to put in

" Treat you like a KING "

Like a Rodney King that is . Old joke at the LAPD expense

Now days it should read "to ticket and generate revenue"
j/k

I wonder why the removal of the slogan...and the backwards flag? I haven't payed any attention to the local police vehicles, so I will have to look next time.

I'd say the #1 priority now days is "to serve and protect.....other cops." We've discussed it before on other threads..Law enforcement agrees with it too given the many stories of their "bravery", but get highly offended when they are called on it..

Where i live the local PD cars say "To Protect and Serve". So i really don't see any issue.
