In a tense moment of confrontation, a military veteran let a Ferguson protester know that the flag getting stomped all over was the same flag he fought to protect.
Video of the demonstrators surfaced online after Indianapolis-based reporter Patrick Calvert tweeted it out on Monday. (Content warning — strong language.)
"I fought for this flag," the man told a small group of demonstrators. "What's he doing to my f***ing flag?"
"We're doing this to your f***ing flag, n*****," a protester grinding his feet into the flag responded.
"What does my flag have to do with this?" the man demanded.
"It's about what your flag represents that's doing to us," the protester responded.
