Nothing says America like being fined for flying our own flag…
Usually these things work out OK for the patriotic guy that is being harassed. A little public outrage and that flag will stay up for another 30 years.
A Georgia man was slapped with a ticket and threatened with jail time after he refused to remove an American flag that’s been flying outside his business for more than thirty years.
An Albany code enforcement officer alleged that Tom Gieryic’s flag was in violation of the city’s sign ordinance. The standard size American flag was posted on a pole outside Gieryic’s automotive repair shop. “It’s been there for 30 years,” Gieryic told Fox News. “She told me my flag was in the city’s right of way.”
If the flag has “been there for 30 years,” and the officer told him the flag was “in the city’s right of way”, where has she had her head for all of her adult life? Where has the rest of Albany had it’s head?
