American flags replaced with white flags; ‘Bicycle Lobby’ denies involvement

Two American flags atop New York’s Brooklyn Bridge were replaced sometime early Tuesday morning with bleached white flags. WABC-TV New York reports:

Police removed the white flags just before noon from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge. [Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence of the NYPD John] Miller said it appeared the 20 foot by 11 foot flags were bleached American flags. One could see faint traces of stars and stripes on [them]. Police also found what appeared to be large aluminum pans that had been affixed as [spotlight] covers, secured with zip ties.

Miller said whoever did it appeared to have some climbing experience and possibly had done bridge work, perhaps even on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Some news outlets had reported that the flag-switch was the work of the “Bicycle Lobby,” self-described in its @BikeLobby Twitter bio as a parody account.

I have five kids from five different mothers because i feel adoption is the greatest gift you can give another human being, especially if you have the resources to provide.
