There's no telling who did it or why. There are millions of people in this country. Alot of people have no respect for property, people who think they are pranksters, purely idiotic people, people on drugs or drunk, people who hate the government, people who hate the military,extremists, etc,etc,etc...
One thing for sure, they are wrong and should be punished somehow. There are also alot of folks in this country who still love our flag and some won't stand by idly and watch this sort of thing go on. They did it at night and ran like cowards. They have nothing worth fighting for or they would do it openly. Alot of boys like we have here would have treated them properly if we would have seen it. It would have been a bad for them to say the least.
It was an insult to the meaning of the flag and to all who love her. Our flag isn't just a piece of colored cloth, it symbolizes our Country and our heritage.
