CHESTER, Pa...James Krapf, a Chester City firefighter is taking heat after he refused to take the American flag off of his locker.
The firefighter was trying to go back to work Friday night after being suspended without pay Thursday for refusing to take the flag sticker off his locker
Krapf said he's patriotic and many American flags hang around the firehouse.
He said he was told displaying the sticker on the outside of the locker is a violation of department policy. Personal items can be posted inside the lockers.
...Since when is the American flag a "personal item"? It's a symbol of pride, of national symbol of support, a "PUBLIC" symbal of patriotism.
Krapf said "I shouldn't have to remove the flag of the country I believe in. I love my country. "I love my job. I love helping people. I've been doing this 11 years in the City of Chester, so this is something I love to do."
Krapf said he hoped to meet with the fire commissioner and the mayor to resolve the issue, though he still wants to be able to display an American flag.
AND as you should!!! You're a hero of American sprit and pride. Not much of that these days in America since we have the utmost socialist in "our Whitehouse" who, day after day, is shredding the declaration of independence of these United States and Europeanizing our nation.
Has the nation, from the Federal level, to state level, to county level, to the local level, been so far draw in to a Government notion the we are a nation "By the Government, For the Government, Of the Government? Enough IS enough!
It's people like firemen Krapf who deserve our support. Who are telling the Government at ALL levels, WE ARE THE PEOPLE! And that YOU are the servants TO the PEOPLE!
Stand tall Firemen Krapf. American Patriots have got your back!
