Family Disgusted After They Discovered Someone Did This To Their Flag

Although not illegal, it is unfortunate that anyone would want to burn the American flag--the representation of the land of the free. Yet, police in Niles, OH are looking for a suspect or suspects who are responsible for stealing Matt Duncan's American flag from their front lawn and burning it. Duncan found his flag damaged and not far from his home where it used to fly in his front yard. He told WKBN “I noticed that it was charred, had some slices in it, and it was burned." His family was heartbroken by the actions and called the vandalism "disgraceful."

Duncan went on to say “We bought this flag through a program through the rotary. They bring it out for all the major American holidays that we celebrate what the soldiers do for us.” Not to mention, this was the second time his flag was stolen from the pole, so he decided to file a police report. Both he and his wife, Jamie Duncan, suspect a group of teenagers. His wife said “Everybody’s kind of disappointed in our kids, or whoever it is, that they would disgrace our flag. We feel we’re a good community and we raised our kids better than that.” Even their 8-year-old son, Connor, used to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag every morning from their home's front window. The police are still searching for suspects.
