The cops ignored lawbreakers in the commission of a criminal act right that happened before their very eyes, and arrested this guy who stepped in to interrupt said criminal act? This is totally uncalled for!
According to the Valdosta Daily Times, an Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart approached a group of protesters who were walking on the American flag on Friday.
Manhart told the newspaper she was not planning to take the flag at first.
“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” she said.
“I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”
According to Georgia Code Section 50-3-9, it’s further a crime for anyone to “mutilate, deface, defile, or abuse contemptuously the flag of the United States, the flag, coat of arms, or emblem of the State of Georgia, or the flag or emblem of the Confederate States of America by any act whatever.”
“We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions,” the Board of Regents said in a statement. Why do I not believe them?
Why do I believe if it were white people protesting Muslim extremism, or black racism, it wouldn’t be tolerated?
Ticks me off to no end to see people disrespect the flag of the United States of America that so many young men and women fought and died to protect… it is sickening and honestly if I had been there I would have picked the flag up and done the very same thing!!
