Firefighters Suspended for Wearing American Flag on 9/11

Ahead of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, four firefighters from Chicago are being suspended for having American flags and pro-military stickers on their lockers and helmets. NBC Chicago reported:

The Maywood firefighters say they were ordered to go home for refusing to remove stickers of American flags after their fire chief implemented a ban on all stickers.

When the Maywood Chief was asked about disciplining the firemen, he claimed that it was due to a picture of a monkey and an American flag placed on a locker which equated to racism. However, the four firefighters (one of whom is an African American and another of Cuban descent) disagree and say that was a 10-year-old practical joke.
