Complaint Causes County To Tear Down Veteran Memorial, Residents IMMEDIATELY Respond

After a memorial honoring veterans was torn down, a community member of King County, Washington is asking why people in his county find the American flag offensive.

County officials removed a collection of American flags and Prisoner of War banners because someone filed a complaint.

The community quickly rallied together to restore the memorial.

Per WACH:

King County road crews took down a “years-old display” of American and POW flags in the town of Preston after someone complained about it.

Crews also say they took down the original flags because they didn’t have permission to be there.

The community quickly responded, fixing their beloved memorial:

But on Thursday night angry neighbors hung up new flags.

“People were really, really upset about this,” said one local resident.

Another local man, Robert Cunningham, said it doesn’t make sense that a single complaint could lead to the destruction of a memorial to U.S. veterans.

“One person says they don’t like it, and they take it down. I don’t understand,” he said. “We live in the United States of America. This is our flag. Why is it offensive?”

The county has released a statement saying the roadside memorial could cause a distraction to drivers:

King County officials say they want to find a solution – and a new location for the memorial because “signage and displays can create a visual distraction that may cause drivers to look away from the roadway.”

And as for the display’s content – officials say making allowances for some would make other displays harder to ban.
