Flags at half-staff yesterday, honoring policemen


From the Honolulu Advertiser:

Flags at half-staff today to mark ‘Peace Officers’ day
Advertiser Staff

Flags are flying at half-staff on state and county government buildings statewide because Gov. Linda Lingle has proclaimed today as “Peace Officers Memorial Day” in Hawai’i.

Lingle’s order is in conjunction with President Bush’s order that all U.S. flags be flown at half-staff today to honor the nation’s law enforcement officers. The governor also declared May 13-19 as “Police Week.”

The rumor was that President Bush had ordered flags to half-staff for Jerry Falwell. Not so.

May 15 was Peace Officers Memorial Day, and President Bush ordered flags to be flown half-staff on that day. Police Week runs May 13-19.
