Bottom line is that the locker is not his personal property, so he should not be placing any stickers on it. It does not matter what the sticker is.
It's so easy to just say that without injecting the real world situation in to it. Consider that they were allowed to put stickers on the lockers prior to the change of rules. Consider the fact that they are firefighters, not school children. Forcing a firefighter to remove a small sticker of the American flag from his locker after he already removed everything else is asking for a situation. I could see if the guy made his locker look trashy with stickers and decals all over. That could be a problem but one small flag on the corner of a firemans locker is something you would praise him for.

Bottom line, don't TELL Americans they cannot display the American flag. Make exception in all cases.

Oh by the way... did you forget 911?

Noone will forget nine-one-one, not even here were we actually use one-one-two instead.....

Your problem is not unique, in Sweden it's the neo-nazis that have been using the Swedish flag most actively - hence now "everyone" assosiate it's use with the far-far-right. We've had a hint of that, but because we use it more actively on our natiobal holiday it's not gone that far. Guess you hvae a hint of it to with some rednecks?

I do agree we are far to eager making sure no-one might possibly be offended. It should be quite ok to be proud of ones flag/nation. There is a huge difference between that and pushing religion or what have you down someones throat. Me for one, I'm very happy when Italians make clothes with the Norwegian flag on it :-)

So I take it that you would be ok with it if I were to plaster stickers all over your car?
