Culture's Nanny of the Month for April 2010: The cop who said, Put down those flags, Tea Partiers!


Last month's biggest busybody was the New York politician who's waging a war on salt.

This month's top honors could have gone to the US senator who wants to block betting on box office sales or the Silicon Valley pol who yanked toys from kids' meals.

But the Nanny of the Month goes to the North Carolina cop who clamped down on tax day protestors' right to carry flags and signs because he feared Old Glory might be used as a weapon. (Hey, we can't have those tea party loons goring people with flag poles!)

Presenting's Nanny of the Month for April 2010: State Capitol Police Chief Scott Hunter!
