CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu says President Joe Biden showed disrespect to law enforcement by not explaining why flags should not be lowered for Peace Officers Memorial Day.
Biden issued a proclamation Monday calling for flags to be lowered to half-staff Saturday in honor of federal, state and local law enforcement officers who have died or been injured in the line of duty. But in an updated proclamation Friday, Biden said flags should remain at full-staff.
Sununu issued a statement Friday night calling the reversal “shocking” and “disrespectful” to law enforcement and their families and saying New Hampshire would lower its flags.

“New Hampshire will continue to honor the men and women who have died or been injured in the line of duty by flying flags at half staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day as we have always done, and as is right,” he said.
