Who Ripped Down The Pride Flags Along Harrison

Every city has its political differences and that understandable in my opinion it happens to create some sort of balance in most cases. Boise is no different, people have their political views and sometimes you see the extremes on both sides of the equation however, Boise in general does a good job of respecting each others beliefs. "Boise kind" is a thing and that's why I'm so disappointed that on the day where the Boise Pride Festivities are being announced the Pride flags have been ripped down. What ever happened to live and let live? Whatever happened to equality? Whatever happened to Boise kind?

One would be gravely mistaken to underestimate the Bundy family. They fought the law and won. Whether you want to recall the national attention of their showdowns with the federal government in Nevada or Oregon, the Bundy Family should not be easily dismissed as a political fringe group.
