Georgia officer fired over confederate flag in her yard | FOX25

I am not a fan of this flag but I don't agree with firing her. not unless the state of GA makes it illegal to display it on private property.

An American flag with confederate flag beneath?


No tire tracks near the flag pole?


Pretty sure she will be getting her job back.

In the investigation, he found Cotriss told investigators that, “she didn't see anything wrong with it" and “was unaware the flag had been adopted by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups."


and police are just not trained in these matters

Guess someone hasn't been beaten over the head with the anti southern garbage spewed out over the airwaves since the Dukes of Hazard went off the air.

"He believes Grant acted swiftly and properly when he fired Cotriss"

Therein lies a big problem with our country

I have several friends from the south displayed that flag. They are not racists, they also displayed that flag when they were deployed. To them, that flag means southern warrior spirit, no more no less.

I don't know what that flag means to this particular police officer. But firing somebody because she displayed that flag in her yard? This sounds pretty scary when you think about it...

It seems odd to me that someone can get fired so easily for something like this but shoot and kill a kid while lying about it won't.

That said......this is an automatic appeal in any court case she is involved in where a minority is involved.

It's not scary. This is justice to liberals. This is the America they want this Nation transformed into. Their America and their ideology alone.
