Can't believe someone stole the "Thin Blue Line" flag we hung from US 285 memorial sign to honor Sgt Renfro!

This is terrible, Cigano. I am sorry to hear that some one did this. But, in your heart if not by your flag, you are still honoring Sgt. Renfro.

Could it have blown away in a storm? I would hope that no one stole it. :(

No, unfortunately. It was pretty obviously taken. Held in place with 2 C-clamps and nylon cord. One C-clamp was wretched-off and gouged the structure. The nylon cord on the other side was cut.

Notwithstanding, I did a search of the ground for quite a distance around to no avail.

We previously have had help from the community un-tangling it. Our one hope is that it became badly tangled and someone took it down anticipating returning it.

I'm so very sorry Cigano - it does sound as though it was removed. Let's hope that it is returned! How long has it been missing?

Thanks - maybe someone is repairing it and will return it!

The last time I drove past I remarked about how beautiful the flag looked. Despictable how low the moral compass has dropped. I am so sorry!

I would be willing to contribute towards the cost of replacing it.
Let me know.
Thanks
