Today, U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) issued the following statement on reports that residents of a Wrentham public housing complex have been ordered to remove American flags from public display:

"Our flag stands for freedom, and is a symbol of the sacrifice made by our servicemen and women to protect the liberties we enjoy today. Flying the American flag should never be controversial, and no citizen should ever be prevented from doing so. I was deeply disturbed to learn of this misguided decision, and I call on the responsible authorities to undo this regulation immediately."
