    Since the cops don't have a clue who did this, I'm going to guess that they probably won't catch them.

    What do you guys think about this amazing feat?




    I could say a lot of things, but I'll just suggest that the fools who are supposed to be securing this location might want to think about installing some security cameras so that the next time this happens they'll have some idea who did it.
    I think they'll replace the flag and be done with it so we can get on to real newz.

    If they had that much time to do that without being noticed, what else could they have done to that bridge in that much time?

    They should have flown the flag upside down as well. We can only guess to the actual message they were trying to achieve but I think that would have added to the power of their message.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Do you have any idea what waving a white flag means?

    Well ya. Surrender. Is the bridge surrendering? Are we surrendering to the ruling of judges? Are we surrendering to children who flood our borders? Are we surrendering to ISIS? How about Putin and the Russian regime. So, ya, we can only guess to the actual message they were trying to achieve. Unless you were one of them or in communication with them, you can only guess.

    The fact no one saw it happening after security was beefed up from previous events early, is worrisome.

    I'm not going to waste any time worrying about what message the losers who did this are trying to put out, I'll let the NYPD deal with it.

    Hopefully they'll catch the losers who did this and make them pay for it.

    That all we can do, hope they catch the people responsible and apply the law properly.

    It is worrisome.

    Maybe the boogeyman spectre of scary terrorists trying to bomb everything just isnt that real. Maybe we have blown a trillion dollars plus on nothing... or at least not a whole lot. It IS a scary thought.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
