DALLAS (AP) – A Texas police chief has sent a terse letter telling a watchdog group to “go fly a kite” after the group sent a letter of complaint when the chief placed “In God We Trust” decals on patrol vehicles.
Childress police Chief Adrian Garcia says he sent the letter last week to the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation.
“After carefully reading your letter I must deny your request in the removal of our Nations [sic] motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite,” Chief Garcia wrote.
Garcia says the decals were placed on patrol vehicles in the Texas Panhandle town to express patriotism and also as a response to recent attacks nationally on law enforcement personnel.
