Chief Deputy J. Lee Weems received several complaints at the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office about Confederate flags being displayed on county property.
He investigated and gave an epic response via the county's official Facebook page on Tuesday.
"This afternoon, we received a call on a non-emergency line concerning Confederate flags being displayed in Oconee County. The caller believed the flags were on county property," Weems wrote.
"I personally went to check the location of the flags. They are on private property. One flag is the 1864 Confederate National Flag, and the other is the 1956 Georgia State Flag," he continued. "Even if they were on county property, such would not be a crime."
"We are well known around here for being supporters of the Second Amendment," Weems continued. "We’re pretty fond of the First Amendment as well. In fact, the only Amendment we really aren’t fond of is the 16th Amendment. (Now you all you folks that didn’t pay attention in 7th-grade Civics have to look that one up. I’m sneaky that way)."
