Dec. 3, 2014

From the Blaze: “In a video uploaded to YouTube Sunday, a man recording questioned a Ferguson police officer about another matter, but before the officer walked away, he made one thing very clear: ‘Just so you know, the Guardsmen have come over to look for pieces of the American flag that got burned.’

”‘Why is that?’ the man asked.

“‘Because it’s an American flag,’ the officer said.

"Moments later, National Guard troops maneuvered their way through the crowd of cheering and laughing protesters. The man, seeming dumbfounded by what the Guardsmen were doing, said as they passed him, ‘It’s a piece of cloth.’

‘But it means something to us,’ one of the troops replied.”
