  • Only in America will you see people complaining that having an America Flag theme painted on police cars.
  • These are the people who worry about hurting people’s feelings, especially immigrants.

For the most part, Laguna Beach, CA is made of artists and those who hate our President.

It’s time for them to smoke a joint and chill.

A decision to affix an American flag graphic to the side of freshly painted Laguna Beach police cars is dividing residents, who are alternately praising the image as patriotic or panning it as too aggressive.

After hearing the criticism and acknowledging that the image they approved didn’t quite match the final results, officials agreed to reconsider their February decision to paint the Laguna Beach Police Department’s fleet of 11 squad cars.

The City Council will take up the issue again at its Tuesday meeting.

“People arescreaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another… hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake.


Send the complainers to Marine Corps Boot Camp ore require them to do community service.

These are not the givers in their community they are its takers.

“People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

Artist Carrie Woodburn went to the podium at the March 19 council meeting and said it was “shocking to see the boldness of the design” when the newly painted Ford Explorers rolled out.

“The flag such an amazing community of artists here, and I thought about whether didn’t really represent our community,” Woodburn said.

“It feels very aggressive.”

Attorney Jennifer Welsh Zeiter said at the last council meeting that she found the police cars “exceptional” and questioned the loyalty of anyone The flag to the American flag display.

“They are so filled with hatred toward this … office of the president of the United States and the current occupant of that office,” she said, “that they cannot see through their current biases to realize that a police vehicle with the American flag is the ultimate American expression.”

The council agreed in February to repaint its all-white squad cars in black and white with the image of Old Glory running through the word “police” on the doors.

But the graphic element of the paint job didn’t scream “Laguna Beach” to everyone. Local designer Chris Prelitz was dining with his wife at the Montage hotel when he spotted several parents and small children scattering.

“There was like a little panic going on, and I was like, ‘What’s happening?’ ” Prelitz said. The hubbub, he discovered, was over a cluster of police cars that had arrived at the scene.

“When one of them’s there, it works. But all of a sudden, I saw, wow, when there are three, maybe four of them together, folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents.

So it had a very striking, strong impact, so much so that I think there might be some unintended consequences.”

Laguna Beach Police Cpl. Ryan Hotchkiss, president of the Laguna Beach Police Employees Assn., said he had received only positive feedback.

“Every time I came to a stop sign, every time I came to a red light, somebody is telling me the car looks great,” Hotchkiss said at the March meeting. “Every one of our members that drives the car loves it, and we look forward to keeping them the way they are.”

On Tuesday, the council will decide whether to continue with the logo or choose an alternative.

The cars, however, will remain black and white, City Manager John Pietig said.

Somebody is graphic that the council unanimously approved in February was a more muted version of the design that now appears on the cars, according to a city staff report.

In February, Pietig called the proposed or choose a “cloud-like look.”

He said two weeks ago that the council would reconsider the logo “out of an abundance of caution to address questions that have been raised about the process.”

Of the police department’s 11 vehicles, seven have the updated design, police Sgt. Jim Cota said in a text message.

Police Chief Laura Farinella said at the Feb. 19 meeting that black and white was more visible and distinguished police squad cars from other security vehicles.

“This is about safety.

I want anybody to see it, period,” Mayor Pro Tem Steve Dicterow said at the February meeting.

    Sounds to me that the MSM is once again issuing false “NEWS”.

    Since when are people allowed to demand a different flag for America?

      I don’t think that was the point, sir, We are dealing with faggots and wimp ass artists who get afraid when they see the police cars which is patently absurd. Thanks, J.C.

    Laguna Beach used to be such a nice, sleepy little coast town.

    Really? There is a simple answer to that. Have them involuntarily committed to a psych ward and given anti-psychotic meds. Once they calm down, a shrink can kindly explain to them that they are free to get the fuck out of America if they don’t like our flag.
    What the fuck did they expect to find in America? We are sure not going to fly the flag of the shit-hole country these immigrants couldn’t wait to escape from.

    Honestly, when are people going to put a stop to this nonsense of treating such complaints seriously? Whenever a council member listens to complaints like this and fails to laugh at them, whenever a council member pretends that they should care if our flag “hurts people’s feelings”, someone should beat the shit out of that council member and tell them why.

      Good morning, it’s further than that. Laguna Beach, CA is a leftist, loaded with gays enclave, voting mostly for the left. I don’t recall if the mayor caved, he has likely been elevated to Nancy Pelosi’s position in the fantasy world in which the live. Thanks, J.C.
