Seattle police officers were seen flying Gadsden flags out the windows of their patrol cars in efforts to protest Washington state’s vaccine mandate.
The flag, which bears the statement “Don’t Tread On Me,” has long been a symbol of freedom, constitutionalism and limited government in the United States.
“Some officers plan on taking time off to decide what they will do long term. They don’t seem eager to stay with SPD. Others explained that they are going to leave SPD by the end of the year as a result of this,” KTTH radio show host Jason Rantz wrote on Twitter, per Fox News. “Officers took these photos in protest of the mandate.”
