Town Bans War Tributes on Public Property

Just to be clear, a "war tribute" would be a yellow ribbon, a "we support our troops" sign, etc.

Where would you draw a line if you started allowing the use of public property to exhibit whatever cause anyone wanted?" Tyler told The Trentonian of Trenton for Friday's editions. "Suppose someone wants to tie pink ribbons, or black flags, or a Confederate flag or a Nazi flag on public property?"

I suppose this applies to the protesters who are using public streets to disrupt an entire city. Those same protesters who seem to really love Nazi references. Oh, yes, their disruptive and violent ways are protected by their First Amendment rights, but to display a yellow ribbon... well that's just inflammatory!
