OSHKOSH - The flap over this American flag has ended.
Dawn Price and her husband Charlie, an Army veteran, have anAmerican flag on display in a window in their BrooksideApartment.
Earlier this week the property's manager, Midwest RealtyManagement told the couple to take it down or get out.
Just 2 days later the company set up a compromise which allowedthe flag to stay if it moved to a rear window.
Price say's she isn't surprised "I know that they've beenbombarded by phone calls emails faxes that really changed theirwords."
Then the company had another change of heart on Thursday anddecided to let the flag stay exactly where it is.
"It's a relief. It really is a relief. I know how much that flagmeans to my husband." said Price.
Property Manager Randy Rich says the company wanted to work withthe Prices, but he admits public pressure also played a role in thedecision.
Rich says the company has received more than 3 thousand phonecalls and more than 4 thousand emails.
He said "the majority of them are very demeaning, lifethreatening, talking about everything from hoping our employeeswill die to our kids getting cancer."
Rich shared some of those emails with FOX 11.
One person wrote: "You are going to evict someone for displayingan American flag during Memorial Day? Shame on you for dishonoringa veteran."
Another email said: "I will be putting a boycott on yourrentals. I will be telling anyone and everyone I know not to rentfrom you."
"This has nothing to do with patriotism...obviously because ofall the support and all the feedback we're getting, we're modifyingour procedures and policies so we can try to please everyone." saidRich.
Price says she's happy to keep her flag where it is, but that'snot her main goal. "The big picture is getting the Act amended soeveryone can display the American flag."
The Act is the federal law that says no residential real estateassociation can stop someone from flying the American flag but itdoesn't apply to renters. Rich says he'll help Price get the lawamended. "We can say it's a law so we have to allow it and we wouldbe fine with that."
