Letter: Ill-mannered protesters

I was greatly disappointed in the group protesting the Republican dinner at the Hotel Colorado last Friday.

The local Boy Scout Troop 225 was invited to perform a flag presentation at the event, and was heckled and cursed by the protesters outside. The Scouts perform flag ceremonies for many local organizations, including veterans and service groups, and take great pride in presenting the colors in a manner that honors what our flag represents.

For a group to politicize a flag ceremony or shame a group of young people for performing this service is not right. We have the right to assembly and to voice our opinions. Please do so in a manner that teaches our youth the values that make our country great and in alignment with appropriate civil discourse.
