Laguna Beach, CA Citizens Sing 'Star Spangled Banner' During Meeting on American Flag Police Decals

During a city council meeting in Laguna Beach, Calif. on Tuesday night, residents sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” in support of leaving American flag police decals on police cars, over complaints that the logo was too “aggressive.”

The rendition came during the public comment period and was led by a woman who declined to give her name. 

“I would like to just support all the citizens here of the United States of America, as one nation, the human race,” she said. “I am very proud that you have the aesthetics for, and the graphics for, the flag. As just as it symbolized American freedom, and our brotherhood, and so does in France the Notre Dame that was burned yesterday, and it represented their freedom and their religious beliefs etc., etc. Please, please keep this for the Laguna Beach [police] cars.”

She then began singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” while those in attendance joined in. 

The Laguna Beach City Council voted to keep the American flag police decal in a 4-1 vote, with Councilwoman Toni Iseman being the lone dissenter.
