white flags on Brooklyn bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is considered a terrorist target, so New York has 24/7 security, and video surveillance.

Yesterday, somebody climbed up and replaced the huge American flags on top of the bridge with white flags. An insult to America? A political statement? Vandalism? These are 20’x11’ long flags – big!

To do this, someone blocked out the bridge lights using aluminum cooking pans, climb over or around locked gates, maneuver up ¼ mile of steel cable, climb a ladder to get onto the platform 273 feet up, unclip the steel fasteners that hold the flags and replace them, in windy conditions.

What do I think?

Uh, hey New York: your security sucks.

What do YOU think? Let me hear from ya.
