    Every time one of these stories appears it just amazes me that NO ONE seems to know the truth. The flag she is flying is the "Battle Flag" not the Confederate Flag. Over the years people have used this flag in the wrong way. Other people have viewed this flag in the wrong way aswell. Everyone has to look at the INDIVIDUAL before making a determination about racisum. This is the USA and EVERYONE has the right to thier opinion. God bless our Military, God bless our Public Servants, God bless our Country.....

    Being from Oklahoma there are def a wide variety of opinions when it comes to the flag, where you live in the state depends on what the representation of it is for. I most def disagree with the actions of the ''rednecks'' that officer Morales delt with, however a large portion of Okies remember the flag for its original purpose which would be big government ruling to much, in lamens terms of course, however the original idea of the south is not much different than how many Americans think of the government, remove the racial aspect and time period difference and not much has changed. And to clarify I do not wish to slam anyones opinion nor create an argument on the topic.

    I know what that flag stands for..I wasU.S Army and stationed in Fort SILL Oklahoma. And one night my roomdog and i went into a bar that had an American Flag & a Confederate Flag hanging outside. So me and my roomdog went inside and tried to get drinks next thing you know we were surrounded by a bunch of REDNECKS that stated that niggers and spics are not welcome, well lets but it like this we woke up in the Hospital. So yes i do think she should bring down that Flag. It stands only for HATE and its a Racist symbol
