OR Apartment Residents Now Free to Fly Flags

Ad Feedback

Residents of an Oregon apartment complex can fly their flags freely again.

Residents say managers told them they could not display flags outside their homes or on their cars.

They say it was because management didn't want to offend anyone. 

But now, the apartment manager has lifted the ban, saying a landlord organization told her it was illegal.

One reporter questioned whether media pressure had anything to do with her decision. 

"Absolutely not," the apartment manager said. "What had to do with my decision, it was pointed out to me that I was wrong. When you're wrong, you're wrong."

Apartment residents are glad to see the ban end.

"It wasn't just me, everyone else was involved in this. Everybody got together to fight for free speech and free expression," resident Jim Clausen said. "It's great to see that come alive. It's actually starting to give me hope for the country."

After people around the country heard of the flag ban policy, the apartment complex received hundreds of calls protesting it.
