UPDATE: American flag design will stay on police cars in Laguna Beach after residents claim it’s threatening to immigrants

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by LA Times:

The Laguna Beach City Council voted this week to keep an American flag design on city police cars.

The vote came after days of national debate about the design for the police vehicles, one that some local officials believed got out of hand.

The article goes on to state the following:

At least 200 people packed the council chambers, where police officers guarded the doors. Many in attendance wore combinations of red, white and blue. Some donned veterans’ or American Legion hats. A couple wore “Make America Great Again” caps.

At least 200 people packed the council chambers, where police officers guarded the doors. Many in attendance wore combinations of red, white and blue. Some donned veterans’ or American Legion hats. A couple wore “Make America Great Again” caps.

One woman burst into the national anthem, and most of the crowd joined her in song. Several people recited poems.

“This became about the flag, but before that it was not about the flag. It was about what our Police Department wanted, what they thought they could best serve the community with,” Mayor Bob Whalen said.

A few speakers had qualms about the design, which couples the cars’ new black-and-white color scheme with the U.S. flag graphic.

Longtime Laguna Beach resident Patrick Cannon said that when he sees the new logo on police cars, he sees “Immigration and Customs Enforcement” because the red and white of the flag runs through the capital letters “ice” in “police.”

“We’re rainbow-sandal-wearing, avocado-eating … surfers and artists, and inclusion is part of our town,” Cannon said. “We do not include our Hispanic community by putting ‘ICE’ on our police cars.”
