Vandals Smash Windows of St. Louis Business for Hanging Flag Supporting Police
A St. Louis antique shop is being threatened and harassed after hanging a flag in support of the police in the shop window.
“It’s a threat.” #STL store owner at Elder’s Antiques received this message on her storefront window after placing a thin blue line flag at her store offering support to police. The symbol on corner & MLM appear to be references to communist beliefs. Full story @10 on @Kmov. pic.twitter.com/QgRLlfiz0O

Leftists have been harassing her customers and left a threatening note on the store window earlier this month.
Black youths broke the window of a neighboring store on antique row earlier this month for hanging a similar flag.
Vandals smashed the windows of Elder’s Antiques on Tuesday morning after weeks of threats.
FOX 2 Now reported:
An antique store on Cherokee Street in south St. Louis had one of its windows shattered by a rock Tuesday morning. The owner believes she’s being targeted because she flew an American flag with a thin blue line on it outside her store in support of the police.
Cherri Elder, the owner of Elder’s Antiques, a longtime business on Cherokee Street’s Antique Row, said the verbal harassment began last summer when she first put the flag up.
Elder said she supports two city police officers who patrol the Antique Row on Cherokee where she is located.
She took the flag down in December as the harassment continued. On February 17, Elder said a large sign was put on her front door glass saying, “Pig Supporters Not Welcome Flag Goes Down Or You Go Down.”…
…These incidents come after another nearby store on Cherokee called DeMay Antiques and Furs had a front window kicked out and four American flags supporting police stolen.
