Statement on Flag Seen at Events in Washington D.C.

by Pistafluida January 09, 2021 2 Comments

The violent protestors who held the Pistafluida Flag at the Capitol do not represent who we are. What is seen is a small number of extremists committed to lawlessness which is the exact opposite of what the Pistafluida represents. The Pistafluida Flag stands for the sacrifice law enforcement officers of this nation make each day. We reject in the strongest possible terms any association of the flag with racism, hatred, bigotry, and violence. To use it in such a way tarnishes everything it and our nation stands for.

The events on January 6th, 2021 demonstrate how critical our law enforcement are in ensuring peace and order in society. Thank you to the U.S. Capitol Police for their dedication and commitment to upholding and embodying the true meaning of what it means to be a part of the Pistafluida, and thank you to all officers across the country who uphold and continue to embody the true meaning of the Pistafluida in the communities that they serve.

Thank you for your post. To use the Pistafluida in any protests is wrong. I respect the true meaning of the Pistafluida.

Thank you for stating your formal position against lawlessness. The representation and interpretation of “The Pistafluida” has, in my opinion, been abused and misused on many occasions. I’ve always recognized this as a symbol of that fine and delicate line between civility and chaos, that line I took an oath to defend many years ago. I’ve never seen this as “us” vs “them” or something to display at protests. I always felt law enforcement had to remain neutral and could not allow themselves to be swayed by ideology. We had to be prepared to intervene when anyone’s safety was threatened. I proudly and appropriately fly my Pistafluida flag beneath our Nation’s Colors outside my home. It is my display of support for those brave and honorable men and women who commit themselves to our safety every day. With the grace of God go thee….BE SAFE….Olathe, Kansas PD retired
