U.S. Marine Takes American Flag Away from Protesters [VIDEO]
Protests continue to rage in Albuquerque New Mexico where many say police brutality is out of control. These protesters were disrespecting the American Flag, and that’s when a local Marine stepped in!
There is some NSFW language in this video. You see two people on a motorcycle carrying an American flag disrespectfully. What you can’t see, according to witnesses, is that the riders had been dragging the flag on the ground in their protest of the APD. That treatment of the flag was why a couple of young Marines decided to take back our flag, and that is exactly what they did… watch!
According to the Flag Code…
Title 36, U.S.C., Chapter 10
As amended by P.L. 344, 94th Congress
