A homeowners association in Colorado has formally demanded that a police officer remove a Thin Blue Line Flag he is flying outside his home. He has been flying the flag for seven years and many other flags are allowed.
“A Colorado police officer has flown his “thin blue line” flag proudly for seven years, but now his HOA says it is in violation of the neighborhood policies and it needs to come down. The officer wished to remain anonymous, but he has been with a police department in Colorado for 17 years,” according to CBS4 Denver.
“He’s had the thin blue line flag hanging on his Centennial home since 2013. He’s never had an issue until now.”
“’We got our mail yesterday, and I opened the mail up and saw a letter from the HOA, the Copperleaf HOA, saying, ‘You’re in violation of flag and flagpole,’” he said. ‘I thought it was ridiculous. If it was an issue why didn’t they bring it to me from day one?‘”
“’The HOA says they can have an American flag, they can have veteran’s military flag, but why can’t I have a police flag? It’s three by five, it’s not standing, it’s up just like my neighbor has his American flag in the same spot. It’s not a nuisance.'”
