It’s amazing what is happening in this country. That’s why I called this blog “The Abyss Beckons,” because it is beckoning. You can see it every day. You can see it everywhere. And there’s no end in sight. It will have to get worse, much worse, before it gets better.
About noon Monday, Power went into the store and issued a written warning citation because she said military flags flying on the roof were in violation of city code. The rooftop display includes two United States flags, a Jacksonville Jaguars flag and flags representing each branch of the military.
“We cater to our men and women, both retired and active military, so it was personal. We felt like it was a personal attack,” store manager Marcy Moyer said.
According to employees, the warning caused a customer to become upset. The customer seen in the video is a military veteran who thought it was wrong to force store managers to take down the military flags.
The way she handled the situation was terrible,” Moyer said.
At one point, the video shows Power getting in the man’s face.
“She says, ‘What did you do for this country?’ He says, ‘I took three bullets to the leg. I almost lost my life for this country. I’m retired. I’m a veteran.’ She gets in his face this close and says, ‘You did nothing for this country,'” store employee Katie Klasse said.
Managers said despite the warning citation, the flags would not be going anywhere soon.
