I saw a flag flying over a police station and I can't find out what it means. Given its placement, I doubt it's anything good.

Its two horizontal stripes, black on top and purple on the bottom. There's a gold (I think) star in the middle.

@ghost_bird Yeah it was this one. So its basically a thin blue line but more manipulative?

The LAtimes blocks my mobile browser, so I'll have to actually read the article later. Thank you though.

@frostotron The article’s just history - looks like it started as gold-on-blue for the military, and this is the cop version.

@frostotron it's the flag of mourning for officers who died in the line of duty, though the bars are typically vertical
