Video: American flag burned at Alabama post office

An American flag, lit on fire and burned in broad daylight.

Now investigators are looking for who did it and residents are left stunned. It happened in Hillsboro at the post office last Wednesday.

“I think it’s pretty bad that someone would stoop to that level,” said a local Hillsboro resident Kevin Coffrey.


Burn marks left on the flag pole which sits at the post office in Hillsboro.

“Just to burn up a piece of what you know all our people have fought for, and our freedom and all that stuff,” said Coffrey.

Wednesday morning, a customer alerted the clerk who was on duty that the flag had been burned.

Only a small piece remains of the flag and the pole is left with burn marks. Read more – Huntsville, Alabama – News Weather, Sports |
