im with sheriff watson...that is the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard..a flag in the courthouse is one of the most appropriate places..after all it is the American justice system is it not?..perhaps the sheriff could incorporate the american flag in the sheriff departments uniforms..such as the military does..apparently the judges in this matter have been educated beyond their intelligence..i served in proud of our flag and our country..and its beyond time to take our country back...bring back the pledge of allegiance..people come to our country because its better than where they came from..then try to change it..our country was founded on solid principles..its time we go back to them..also its time the government was reminded that they work for us..not to line their own pockets..anyone that cannot put hand over heart and swear allegiance to this country , has no business here..

Outrageous in America. We must stand up against these liberal judges. The U.S. Constitution is the law of the land and not the UN or the Obama administration.

We better take this country back - and soon. This is not the country I grew up with.
Stand up people...

I don't understand this country sometimes,guess that courthouse and judges aren't proud of the flag and the men and women that fault for the meaning FREEDEM. I agree with the sheriff it is a slap in the face.

I think the judges rational is asinine. Similiar to Thomas comment tying this to OBAMA...

Either way, this is ridiculous.... The American Flag belongs any where on American Soil that is owned by americans....
