    The thing that bugs me is the timing. They should have painted it over at Christmas time.

    I will agree that the painter should have applied and recieved permission first and most likely broke some law. Caltran had the authority to paint over the flag. The question is the need for removal?

    IMO, its not the same to argue private property rights vs. public property rights for those who said is it ok to paint someones house.

    So you basically want to set a precidence that it is ok to grafitii a public area so long as it is a flag or some other arbitrary art? Really? That is what you want to change the laws to? Because that is what would have to happen to allow this to go unpunished.

    The gov. owned the property, and decided to take it down. Thats all the reason they needed.

    What part of "applied and recieved permission" didn't you understand? Actually I hate grafitii. Though some is pretty good art, especially compared to gang/taggers. So I'll go along with you, no grafitii should be placed on public property (without permission)?

    I think this might go against flag code.

    I understood it perfectly, and then you said:

    The question is the need for removal?
    Which is a simple answer, because the person broke the law. Why should his art remain when he broke the law to do it? The removal was just and right in this instance.

    It's amazing how Leftists will defend the removal of anything that could be remotely patriotic.

    Bet ya'll would be singing a different tune if it were a star and cresent, or celebrated Nelson Mandela, or some other communist asshole.

    So you think that it is ok to break the law then and paint grafitii on government property without permission, got it.

    If it were something more PC than our national colors, it probably wouldn't have been painted over. Political correctness sucks ass.
