So I received the same form letter email response that another ATS'er received and posted. I am sure that the Fire company received THOUSANDS of
Here is my response:
I think you are now being dishonest.
I find it very difficult to believe that TWO people all of a sudden decided to dig far deep into the United States Code, just to find a clause that
just so happens to pertain to the flag in question and how it was being displayed.
What I think REALLY happened is that you received complaints about the FLAG itself, not about how it was displayed, just like 99% of the people first
hearing about it thought.
I think you caved, and realized over the weekend that it was the wrong thing to do after all of the crap hit the fan.
I think you then needed to find a way to cover your butt, so you and your "assistants" dug into the US CODE to find a reason to state that it was
all of a sudden a "display" issue, not a Patriotic issue.
Otherwise, why didn’t you rush to the front of the line when this story broke to announce this? Why did you let those protestors waste their time
on Sunday? Why did you let this story get so blown out of proportion?
You could have very easily gone over there and explained to them and the news media that you removed the flag based on code and not because of the
reason these people were in fact protesting.
I would bet my life, that MY version of the story is what went down.
So thanks for the form letter reply, and lying to cover your &ss
