    Flag Vandalism Mars Memorial Day in Several States

    Flag Vandalism Mars Memorial Day in Several States


    From Oregon to Minnesota to Ohio, vandals trampled on Old Glory over the Memorial Day weekend. In one Ohio town alone, approximately 25 American flags were found set ablaze on Monday.

    At least one national veterans group called for those responsible for the "shocking and reprehensible" acts of vandalism to be quickly arrested and prosecuted.

    Police in Wooster, Ohio, were going door-to-door early Tuesday in search of the people who torched roughly 25 flags and flagpoles along Saunders Drive and Morgan Street, Capt. John Quicci said.

    What is a flag anyways? Simply a piece of fabric and a symbol of nationalist fevor. That's all. People burn them because they don't like nationalism. What's wrong with that?

    People who don't love their country don't deserve to live in it-- regardless of which country it is.

    I agree. As long as that doesn't mean you can't critisize your own country sometimes.

    But certainly this action is inexcusable.

    Who loves you more, the friend who apologizes for all of your mistakes or the friend who tells you to pull yourself together?

    I would say that buring a flag alone does not determine whether one loves or hates a country, and even still, why is it just a case of love / hate? What about like but acknowledge the issues it faces, or anything IN BETWEEN the extremes?

    Anyways, the issue, for those who miss it, seems to be the people burning down not their own flags, but other flags and flagpoles, actually vandalizing other people's property.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Your correct. Sometimes people burn the flag out of protest. Now can you enlighten me on what protest or good it does to stomp on the flag on Memorial Day? It is a day to remember those who gave their lives so you have the right to protest. Seems to me it it totally disrespectful. There is a time and a place to address your grievances against the government. IMO, this is not the day or the method to do it.

    Neither, both want to take advantage of you.
