Wow, seriously blazer fan, if we put all of our flags on the inside, then what do we have left to show our support to all of the men and women who serve our country? They fight for even sad people like you to fly our flag proudly, not hide it on the inside.

Y'know, everyone I know loves downtown Willoughby. It's one of the few places left in the suburbs that you really get a feeling of small town nostalgia. I would hate to see it go the way of all the other areas that once thrived but fact is that times have changed and some precautions should be taken. Things left out could be screwd in place. Small chains on larger items are easy to conceal. A sign boasting video surveillance is a great deterrent. We can't stick our heads in the sand and hope nothing bad happens. Maybe next time just move the flag up a bit out of reach and throw a couple screws in the pole. I hope the flag is returned and Willoughby continues to thrive. A crime of opportunity only happens if given an opportunity.

I fly my American flag proudly everyday as long as weather is nice. At night I take the flag down and take it inside because I follow and respect the Federal Flag Code. Another reason I take the flag inside at night so it won't get stolen.
