Virginia Judges Force Sheriff to Remove US Flag From Courthouse

In Portsmouth, Virginia, Sheriff Bill Watson was told to take down an American flag display from the courthouse. The judges told him that if they allowed one display, they’d have to allow others.
The flag in question was made from old fire hoses and was a tribute to first responders and public safety.

If you can believe this the judges told Sheriff Watson the lobby was not an appropriate place for a US flag display! 

Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson says he is furious after a group of judges told him to take down an American flag display.
Sheriff Watson said his agency got the American flag display as a gift from members of the Portsmouth Fire Department a few weeks ago.
It’s made of old fire hoses which a sign beneath it that reads, “A Tribute to Public Safety.”
Watson said he requested to have it mounted on the wall in the lobby of the courthouse but was shocked by what he was told.
Watson said he was told, “Not only do we not want it on the wall, we don’t want it in the courthouse.”
Watson said, “I just can’t believe that they don’t want to display the American flag in a courthouse, I mean that’s the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard in my life.”
NewsChannel 3 spoke with a judge who didn’t want to be identified about the issue. The judge told us it was decided that the lobby of the courthouse is not the appropriate place for the display.

    I'm guessing the UN flag would be peachy.

  2. Didn't want to give their name huh? How much do you want to bet that it was either 'Gonzales', 'Hernandez', or ended in 'berg' or 'stein'?

    Wasn't going there but now that you mention it. ....LMAO

  4. It was not an American FLAG ..... it was junk stuck together to kinda LOOK like a flag....... like that Krap pile in Detroit where some geezer slapped paint on garbage --- stuck it up and called it "art"

  5. the insult to America is a JEWISH method. and all bets are that that skank was another dual national traitor like the Congressmen who spit in pOTUS' s face re: Netanyahoo

  6. Well that changes everything. What dishonest reporting by whoever wrote this in the first place.

    I still think public officials making public decisions should not have the benefit of anonymity. If there was a good reason to exclude it, those reasons should've been clearly articulated with their name attached for accountability.

  7. Jews are a pretty diverse group of people, many being decent people, but there are some influential segments that stir up a lot of trouble for everyone especially their 'host' population (and eventually all Jews when the inevitable backlash starts.) It's really getting old already. They need to start acting like the 'light unto the world' they could be, and the first place to start is to cease this war by the extreme Marxist faction against freedom and against white people.

  8. "governmental immunity" ....a hangover from FEUDALISM needs to go. Far too many UNaccountable bureaucrats.
