I was just wandering around the house, TV on but volume off, and I saw what appeared to be NYPD officers raising a flag in a cerimony of some sort. I stopped to watch for a second as the two officers attatched the flag. After they attatched it to the rope, they raised it slightly, and officer two lets it unfold by dropping it.....clear to the ground. They both stood there for a second then officer two begins grabbing it up off the ground and continued to raise it. Now, I am quite positive that I was always taught if the flag touches the ground you burn it. Does anyone still do this today? It seems to me that respect for the flag, although up slightly in recent months has been waning for years. I am kind of a stickler for this and make numerous phone calls to buisinesses to inform them when they are flying a desicrated flag. I just cant believe that these two officers did this on national TV and just went ahead and raised it.
