video: VIDEO: Brown University Student Trashes American Flags

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

 

The video above was taken by Brown University student Nicky Strada, showing an unnamed student crumpling up and trashing American flags. It has since garnered over 17,000 views. 

The flags had been placed on campus for Brown's November 11 Veterans' Day event

Facebook Post

Strada posted the video along with the following statement in a public post on his Facebook page after the incident, on November 10:

Today was a sad day...Hundreds of flags were set up on the main green of Brown University by 2 VETERANS in honor of Veterans Day tomorrow, and when i got out of class, people had snapped them, ripped them, and threw them aside (in the video).

I spent 1.5 hours outside taping them back together and putting all of them back in the ground, with a few confrontations. Only 2 people out of hundreds of people that passed by stopped to help. One person actually stomped on and snapped all of the ones I put back and when i asked her to stop and explained that they were for Veterans Day she said "I don't care about that". Always stand up for what you believe even if you have 6 thousand people against you and [sic] dont step on my flag.
