Flag bill shows
To the editor: Regarding the Sept. 12 article, “Thin blue line flag bill introduced,” two things should be noted.
First, in many parts of the country, including Ohio, various groups and individuals have unfortunately usurped the flag’s intended message of police respect and instead are using this flag to represent white supremacy and are flying the thin blue line flag as a substitute for the flag of the Confederacy.
Second, as drafted by the American Legion and codified into law, Title 4 of the U.S. Flag Code states: “The flag should never have placed upon it, nor any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture or drawing of any nature.”
To do so is a measure of disrespect to the flag. It’s hard to believe state representatives Kevin Miller and Tim Ginter are not aware of this. If you want a flag to express an idea or culture, you can create your own unique flag. It isn’t necessary to deface and disrespect the great American flag in doing so.
