    Over the past several weeks, there has been outsized attention paid to the American Flag, and whether flying it upside down is disqualifying for a Supreme Court Justice.

    Now, the people raising the issue actually loathe the American Flag and regularly burn it in protest, so paying attention to their grievances is a waste of time. Still, flag discussions are everywhere these days, especially considering the prominence of alt-flags during pride month.

    One of our CDM sister publications, The Connecticut Centinal, is reporting a controversy in the Town of Wethersfield this week, after petitioners requested to honor CT State Trooper First Class Aaron Pelletier by raising a thin blue line flag for his funeral on June 5th.

    “Trooper Pelletier, a 9-year veteran of the Connecticut State Police and member of the 125th Training Troop, was killed in the line of duty when he was struck during a traffic stop on Interstate 84 by a driver who fled the scene on May 30, 2024.”

    The town declined to honor the fallen Trooper with the flag. The rainbow flags, of course, still fly high.

    While this story is on the other side of the country, the town’s decision rings true for us in Colorado, where protests – and their related flag burning – are common. Has Colorado moved past the point of honoring fallen public servants as well?
