Original Message     NJLawman.com Police and Law Enforcement NewsThursday, February 16, 2012  10:16 a.m.  Yesterday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie ordered all New Jersey State and American flags to be lowered to half staff on Saturday in honor of Entertainer Whitney Houston who passed away this week.Last year, the governor did the same for Clarence Clemmons, the saxophone player for the E Street Band.In January, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett ordered the state flag to half staff for three days in honor of Penn State Football Coach Joe Paterno when he passed.We take great issue with this practice.Ms. Houston and Mr. Clemmons are both children of our great state and were both wildly successful.  Each has made a significant contribution to music, culture, and the arts, and both are deserving of many accolades. But just as an American serviceman killed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan is not deserving of a Grammy award, musicians and celebrities are not deserving of the lowering of the American flag.Simply, not everybody gets every honor.There are few gestures as symbolic and as loud as an entire state lowering their flags at the same moment for the same amount of time. Seeing a flag at the half staff position should spawn pause and thought. 

.This practice must stop.
