Milwaukee Police Do THIS To U.S. Flag Burned By Protester At GOP Debate

It was a solemn, quiet ceremony following a loud, obnoxious protest outside the GOP debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, protesters posed for a picture of themselves holding a Black Liberation Flag while standing on the American flag before setting Old Glory on fire.

When Milwaukee Police officers found the flag later, they gave the desecrated banner its due respect. Officers Joel Rossman, Jedidiah Thompson, and Jutiki X properly folded the flag before saluting it.

A video of the solemn event captured the attention of many on social media. As of early Friday morning, the video had been retweeted on the Milwaukee Police Twitter feed. A version of the video on their Facebook page garnered almost 744,000 views, over 12,800 shares, and more than 14,600 likes.

Is the American flag a powerful symbol to you that deserves respect?
