Dear PoP – What’s up with the “don’t tread on me” flag?

“Dear PoP,

We live next to the firehouse on 14th and Newton. Woke up this morning to see that they’re flying a black “don’t tread on me” flag beneath the American flag. While there is historical significance to this flag, I suspect somebody is trying to make a political statement of some kind. Which begs the question, are individual employees of the DC government allowed to make public political statements on city property? This would not be considered ethical with the Federal Government.

Hmm, what do you guys think – is the a political statement?
