Putting the “Blue Lives Matter” symbol on cop cars in Sausalito wasn’t a good idea.
The symbol is a flag with one of the stripes in blue. Agree with it or not, it is a political symbol and political symbols do not belong on public property.
The Sausalito City Council heard a number of citizens complain about it at their last meeting and ordered the police chief to have the symbols removed.
That’s 100 percent the right call.
