Controversy over Florida store's display of military flags caught on camera

Via Facebook

One of the employees and her supervisor have both been placed on administrative leave since the incident.

When the citation warning was issued emotions were running high between Power and a veteran who was a customer in the store at the time and defending the store's right to have the flags flying. He responded that he was a retired veteran who took three bullets to the leg for his country.

Surveillance video captured city inspector Melinda Power getting in the face of the customer at Jaguar Power Sports on Blanding Boulevard.

Jaguar Power Sports' video has since been shared almost 250,000 times and received more than 5 million views as of 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Shaun posted a follow-up video Monday night, saying the mayor had reached out and a city representative had apologized. "We should not get cited or ticketed for flying flags representing our country".

The CBS affiliate in Jacksonville reports Mayor Lenny Curry has ordered a review of this incident. I nearly lost my life for this country.

Store manager Marcy Moyer felt the whole situation was "personal". Let them fly. I Have reached out to the business owner & will review employee procedures.

"She turned around at the door and said to me, in a very loud voice that what I did for this country did not matter", said the veteran who told the station that he wanted to remain anonymous.

This forces the players to be better aware of their placement on the field. "I like the way they improved the team and the squad". Salah is also in the running for the top PFA award, the Players' player of the season.

"We are disturbed by some of the claims made about a city employee and are reviewing the facts", according to the statement.

The City of Jacksonville said the business was warned, but not fined for the flags, according to WJAX.

A Jacksonville business will be able to keep its military flags flying after a city inspector issued a citation Monday demanding that they be taken down.

"Warnings are issued to provide property owners information about a possible violation, and corrective action", it added.

Hughes also said ongoing problems with the business owner violating highway safety regulations by placing signs and vehicles in the public right of way is a "safety issue". "We support our military and veterans and we appreciate businesses who honor their service", Curry tweeted. "I think there should be some serious reprimand to her".

Power later posted to Facebook herself, issuing an apology before deleting the post, though screen shots continued to be circulated on social media.
