ACLU: School’s Salute to Cops Sends “Ominous, Frightening Message”

A patriotic, pre-game celebration honoring law enforcement and first responders at a high school football game has drawn the ire of the New Jersey chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
 
New Jersey’s Middletown High School South saluted more than 100 police officers and military personnel on Oct. 21st.
 
 
The celebration culminated with teenaged football players and police officers unfurling a massive American flag before singing the national anthem.
 
“A star-spangled celebration,” is how the Asbury Park Press described the festivities.
 
But the ACLU of New Jersey exploded with fury -- accusing organizers of sending an “ominous, frightening message.”
