Local news reports out of Oakland, California have noted that the Occupy Oakland group held a march on the 4th of July that resulted in vandalism of a police headquarters and a patrol car. And while that’s true, The Blaze has found some of the pictures and video from the event that paint a much more sinister picture — a picture filled with burned American flags and anti-American sentiment.

This is a direct result of making it illegal to spank your child. I really don't give a crap what they're protesting..for OR against. This is deplorable, if you think it's not...you're part of the problem IMHO.
And yes...my kids were spanked and they would never be a party to this crap because I'd still go after them!

According the the Dept of Homeland Security they are of no concern. It is those right wing returning veterans we need to worry about. Jus sayin...

The left wing nut jobs that don't have a problem burning the flag and trashing a neighborhood burning cars and buildings. These are the same left wing nut jobs that protest against using our natural resources, burning wood to heat our homes, damning rivers to provide hydro power and they really hate capitalism. Some how when they burn buildings and cars that isn't pollution. Sure glad I stopped my education at high school.

Clearly this was way out of line and went too far. I have in the past admired the right that people have to burn the flag as a part of the protection of free speech. The context of that being that it embodies the amount of freedom people have here compared to most of the rest of the world. Out and out vandalism is not an exercise in free speech however, it's just childish and only expresses ignorance.
