The governor of Maryland on Sunday sharply criticized Montgomery County’s top-elected to be the president of the police officers from the view of the wood, “thin blue line” flag that was a gift last week from a local resident.

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich called the flag “divisive” over the weekend and said that it was not going to be on display at the Fifth District police station, the neutralization of the officers, who have accepted the gift and said that it was going to be shown.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, said in a series of tweets that he was “outraged and disgusted” Elrich had been arbitrarily forbidden the officers of the display of the flag, which was, for them, a father and his young son, for the honor of National First Responders Day.

“I have attended the funerals of the fallen police officers across our state, and I have to take the time to thank them for their dedicated service and sacrifice,” he said.

Hogan said that the people had “pride” appears on the display in the Governor’s mansion in Annapolis.

“I have the call of the Lord Elrich, to immediately reverse this terrible decision, and to apologize to the police department and the citizens of Montgomery County,” he said.

The Montgomery County police union’s criticism of Elrich, who is a Democrat, has said that it would be an honour to accept this as the “thin blue line” flag.

“The work the police officers of Montgomery County, are extremely offended by such an act of blatant contempt for them, and that is the flag that represents the sacrifice and dedication of law enforcement officers who daily risk their lives, health and limbs, and well-being in the service of their community,” police union said. “Too many have made the ultimate sacrifice, and we will not allow political pandering by Jones and Elrich have to reduce their services.
