‘Ingrates’: Footage of protesters burning American flags will infuriate you

flag burn

Things heated up on the streets near Ferguson overnight – literally.

Protesters were burning American flags and chanting for the death of  Darren Wilson, the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown.

USA Today’s Yamiche Alcindor was at the scene reporting on the increased level of anger and she tweeted Vine video and pictures of the disgusting acts of burning.

As you can imagine, the responses were emotional:

Without fail, there were people on Twitter who supported the burning, blaming the country for driving protesters to this disgraceful act and excusing them from anything they might do out of “frustration.”
