Houston-area man can’t hang flag from his apartment balcony — but why? — 1 Comment

  1. KHOU finally posted a followup article on June 24th:

    Houston apartment complex explains problem with resident’s flag display

    …On Tuesday the complex’s corporate CEO Jenifer Paneral responded.

    “There was never a statement that the flag was a threat to any religious community, or to anyone at any point in time,” she said.

    …She said this comes down to, “a clear violation of our policy.”

    That’s because she said the flag was too big to hang off the balcony railing, where it could fall on someone below. Paneral said the property manager explained that to Tran.

    ”She did refer to other communities, other religious groups in that explanation, but it was just an example of the types of things that were hanging over the balcony,” said Paneral. ”But at no time was there ever a statement that it was a threat to any community.”

    Tran is standing by his version, that he was told the flag was a threat to the Muslim community and it had to come down from his balcony. …

    So it still looks like a simple misunderstanding of what was said, which got unnecessarily blown up into a national incident.
