Students at Brown University vandalized a memorial to veterans on the eve of their holiday, ripping several American flags in half and tearing them to shreds.
One student who helped organize the memorial, Nicky Strada, took to Facebook to express outrage at the fact that classmates had disrespected America’s war heroes and the country’s flag.
“Today was a sad day. Hundreds of flags were set up on the main green of Brown University by 2 veterans in honor of Veterans Day tomorrow, and when I got out of class, people had snapped them, ripped them, and threw them aside,” Strada recounted.
Indeed, an accompanying video shows one student collecting a pile of American flags, aggressively throwing them on the ground, and leaving them trashed under a tree.
“One person actually stomped on and snapped all of the ones I put back,” Strada noted, “and when I asked her to stop, and explained that they were for Veterans Day, she said ‘I don’t care about that.’”
