Dawn Paulus, 75, has lived through world wars and difficult times. In honor of Memorial Day, she flew three small flags from her balcony at a Phillipsburg, New Jersey housing project.

But soon after she posted the flags, she received a cease order from the Philadelphia Housing Authority. The order says she violated the lease and will be evicted if she doesn’t remove the flags immediately.

“I don’t want to be that guy. I don’t want my legacy to be I kicked anyone out over a flag,” Paul Rummerfield, the executive director of The Phillipsburg Housing Authority, said.

Rummerfield he’s been getting death threats people are so angry over the issue. But he claims the flags are a safety hazard.

“We’re not anti-American. It’s just a lease provision that says nothing can be on the balconies.”
