We present deep VLA radio observations of six sources from the 1 Jy sample (Stickel et al. 1991) of radio selected BL Lac objects (RBL). The polarization properties of the extended emission of these objects are not consistent with those of the FR I radio galaxies (Fanaroff & Riley 1974) usually indicated as their ``misaligned population''.

Key words: polarization - BL Lacertae objects: general - radio continuum: galaxies
