This is meant to be an update to the thread which detailed this subject, and by no means is meant to rob that thread of any of its deserved
What I am showing is the double standard of the authorities who originally trespassed and removed property without warrant and undo cause; a flag,
flown upside down in protest was removed by police so that, in their words, the community would not be offended, and to save the owner from undo
Now, as I reported in the other thread, a protest was going to be held outside the man's home... hours before it began. I knew about this, and the
media knew about this.
So, where were the police?
If they were so concerned about repercussions, then why were police absent when this was going on?
Simple. As a response, they said "the people have a right to protest". Is this not a double standard?
Some may say that the police have more important issues to deal with... and they'd be right. But in a community where the cops are known to hang
out with teenagers, in an area where people fly the Confederate flag with no worries or concerns... not serving the interests in which they took the
man's property to alleviate any situation, their lack of action (even lack of standing by) is, in my opinion, wrong.
