The bleached American flags were discovered at the top of the bridge’s two 276-foot high towers after dawn broke Tuesday. The intruders would have had to climb hundreds of feet on the bridge’s suspension cables before getting past locked gates and using ladders to get to the towers’ apex. The New York Police Department has reportedly assigned three dozen elite investigators to catch the intruders who replaced the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge with white flags early Tuesday morning. The New York Post reports that the officers were pulled from the department’s homicide, counterterrorism, intelligence and transit units to assist in the investigation. The Post reported that investigators were looking for four or five men who were carrying backpacks and may have been traveling in two groups. Is this some sort of terrorist dry run to prove they can bypass security?
Brooklyn Bridge NYC That Ain’t No White Flag it’s the American Flag Bleached White. 2 American flags on top of Brooklyn Bridge replaced with 2 white bleached American Flags, the stars and stripes are clearly visible. NYPD officials investigating how the two American flags on top of the Brooklyn Bridge were replaced with two white banners said Wednesday that the act was likely carried out by up to five intruders in two teams with knowledge of the bridge, The New York Post reported.
The teams’ plan to evade police in four patrol cars included aluminum lasagna pans they used to cover the floodlights aimed at the flags during the switch at 3:29 a.m. Tuesday. The 11-by-20-foot white flags were first spotted at the break of dawn by a police officer, The Post reported.
Investigators are reviewing security footage for clues, police said. Police said that security camera footage showed several people walking on the pedestrian path at about 3:20 a.m., and then the light on the Brooklyn-side tower going out about 20 minutes later. About 12 minutes after that, the light on the Manhattan tower goes out, too, police said.
