Obama Endorsed OWS … Four Occupy Charlotte Protesters, Including the spokesman Charged For Setting Fire to Two American Flags
More from the Barack Obama endorsed Occupy protests …
Four Occupy Charlotte Protesters were arrested and charged for setting fire to two American flags early Friday near the Occupy Charlotte camp in Center City, NC. One of the protesters charged was the spokesman for the Occupy gang. The police arrested 20 year old Stephen Christopher Morris of Matthews, 28 year old Jason Bargert of Charlotte, 23 year old Michael Alan Behrle of Matthews and 19 year old Alex Macon Tyler of Fort Mill. Before the LEFT get too crazy, don’t worry, the Occupy “burn flag” protesters were not arrested for burning an American flag, that of course is not illegal. However, doing it outside of a fire pit, and within ten feet from flammable tents was the issue.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police weren’t sure earlier if the four men who set fire to two flags were associated with the Occupy Charlotte movement.
But, WBTV has learned that one of the men is the media spokesman for the Occupy group and has been the contact person listed on press releases from Occupy Charlotte.
The fires happened with in feet of the group’s encampment.
Earlier reports indicated one flag was burned, but a police report says that 2 US flags were burned.
So who knew, President Barack Obama now endorses the burning of the American flag?
