Two city employees were seen using the American flag to clean a bathroom floor in Coney Island. This was reported to the New York Post by Guardian Angels member Jose Gonzalez who was in Coney Island on Saturday afternoon.
Gonzalez told the Post that the two Park Department workers were cleaning the men’s room with the flag and that a veteran was “enraged” over what he saw.
“The Parks guy didn’t see what the big deal was,” Gonzalez said to the Post.
Curtis Sliwa, 77 WABC’s midday co-host and founder of the Guardian Angels, was not pleased with what was reported to him by his fellow member.
“This is an absolute disgrace especially one day before Flag Day, an honored day that no one is discussing in New York City,” said Sliwa.
