    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Four protesters, including the spokesman of Occupy Charlotte, were charged after setting fire to two American flags early Friday near the Occupy camp in Center City, police said.

    It's not illegal to burn the flag as is pointed out...


    The fires happened with in feet of the group's encampment.

    Police said the men claimed they were burning the flag in protest. Burning the flag is not illegal, however doing it outside of a fire pit, and within ten feet from flammable tents poses a problem.

    I'm sure the dipshits were concerned about fire safety...


    Police officers told WBTV the protesters gave them a verbal tongue-lashing while being detained, calling then fascists, as well as using other colorful words.
    WOW!!! I'm sure the cops were real upset. :D

    I suppose you don't really need a reason and can't be compelled to disclose your reason, but it seems that a lot of the political speech at Occupy goes unexplained, unfocussed, or unjustified.

    Not to mention, only an idiot would think that burning a US flag would draw fans or enhance credibility.

    Dear Occupy Charlotte- 1972 is calling and wants its stupid back.

    They should have been allowed to burn the flag where ever they wanted including inside tents if that's what they choose to do.

    Once again, if these people hate the U.S. so much, Cuba is only 90 some short miles from Florida.

    Burning the flag should constitute a renunciation of citizenship and be legally binding. Anyone who chooses to publicly do so should be detained by ICE and offered their choice of deportation location.

    If we deport enough of them, the rest of the world will be too busy catering to their BS to do anything to us. :D
