For what reason I don't know. At worst I'm guessing they're being stolen to be resold at a street corner somewhere for profit. I've spoken to a few neighbors and they're pretty pissed off their flags were stolen. If they're stolen for personal use, I don't see the how you could proudly display your patriotism with a stolen flag. Now I really want to move! ------------------ Signature? I don't need no stinkin' signature.
