A thin blue line flag has been banned by a local high school in Neptune Beach, Florida following a series of complaints that circulated on social media, according to a report by News4Jax.
According to the outlet, the Fletcher High School football team started carrying the pro-law enforcement flag last year, as a way for one of its players, Caelan Lavender, to honor his late father, Cpl. Andy Lavender. Mr. Lavender was a Jacksonville Beach police officer who unexpectedly passed away in August 2019 after 29 years in law enforcement, and was active in sports programs.

What’s with these leftist Florida high schools and administrators? Are they breed specifically as cowards and dorks or do they have to get a college degree for it?
I suspect that crap like this is getting Trump more votes than the Left ever knew existed, and deservedly so.
WHEN does it STOP?
HOW FAR are we going to let these petulant, juvenile racist obsessed people go?
This is all just a ridiculous ploy of the left to drive all NORMAL citizens crazy!
We ALL need to STOP giving any credence to these LOONEY RACE OBSESSED IDIOTS.
Publish Dean Ledford’s contact info and give him and the school board an earful.
This stops now.
Open or concealed. Am I carrying today? Your guess.
I use a pimp stick for balance. Is mine ornamental today, or functional?
It depends on if you are also carrying a pimp cup.
Remove your kids form this school today
>> WHEN does it STOP?
It stops with you, me, and everyone else that gives a damn.
Any police officer who votes Dem in this election cycle needs to have his or her head examined. The Dem Party is at war with the police, literally.
It’s not the cops we need to worry about.
It’s the publik skrewl teachers.
What is with this TikTok generation that they want to brandish pro police flags?
what about black police officers?
Blacks consider law and order to be racist? That explains a lot.
Social media? The death of America right there. Since when is policy decided by social medial? Are those complaining even part of the school?
Lol. FREEPERS are the ones demanding their little cherubs go to these very indoctrination schools. Its calmed down some but a few weeks ago it was the rallying cry around here. I thought I was on a different website.
Uncle toms in democrats Mind.
Just about every symbol has been called racist. The US flag. “White Lives Matter.” “It’s OK to be White.”
This kind of insane hysteria should be seen as the mental disease that it is, and not be taken seriously.
