Conservative values and patriotism have been tested in recent years like never before. Now, one city California is facing some very angry critics.
Now police cars were designed with the American flag on the side inside the lettering. Some people were extremely upset by the patriotic lettering and protested the decision. Many said they felt uncomfortable by the image.
"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,'" according to reports.
Thankfully, the city upheld their decision. Now, Franklin Graham is speaking out about the victory and commending the city for their faith in the nation and holding their ground amidst the controversy.
"I’m proud of the citizens & city council of Laguna Beach who defended the American flag on police cars! Can you believe there were complaints saying it might intimidate immigrants? Don't they realize that what the flag stands for is the reason so many want to come to the US?" wrote Franklin.
"At a standing room only city council meeting, nearly every person in the room raised their hand that they supported the flag design. The city council voted to keep it. Good job Laguna Beach!" he wrote on Twitter.
"When one woman spoke in support of the flags at yesterday’s city council mtg in Laguna Beach, she started singing the National Anthem and everyone joined in! “O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?" concluded Graham.
