    TURLOCK (CBS13) — A stunning act of vandalism right before the Fourth of July had Turlock residents and workers scrambling to fix American flags.

    It’s almost inconceivable and it is certainly extremely disrespectful.

    Vandals damaged about a dozen flags put up in downtown for Turlock’s big parade, jumping to pull the stars and stripes down with their weight, severely bending the poles.

    The flags drooped down nearly to the sidewalk. If we’re talking money, it’s about $500 worth of damage. But of course, we’re talking about the flag, so it goes deeper than that.

    An after-hours assembly line scrambled to repair the damage done in a building with no air conditioning on a summer day where temperatures were well into the 100s.

    Workers were fixing a triumphant display of patriotism that was turned into an ugly display of disrespect.

    “For just no other reason that we can figure out, other than just for kicks,” said Dana McGarry with the Turlock Downtown Property Owners Association. “There’s just something wrong about it. What kind of people do that? I don’t know.”

    When I see an American Flag...

    Waving in the wind from a rear window, I automatically sneer to myself that “there goes a republican”.
    Am I crazy? just asking..... Perhaps my thought is that the right has hi-jacked our flag..




    And the replies???

    None. They expect the government to do it for them.
