Protesters in Albuquerque, NM took to the streets last weekend to protest what some see as persistent police brutality. The protests were sparked by the fatal shooting of a homeless man in March. Two protesters were seen holding the American flag upside down, a signal of distress. Two men, one wearing a Marines T-shirt and another sporting an Army shirt, saw that as a form of disrespect. In the video below, you see the two men yank the flag away from the protesters and leave with it. The video has gone viral and has sparked a First Amendment debate. Watch the video and decide for yourself. Warning: video contains strong language.
