At least one protester reportedly stomped and attempted to burn an American flag in downtown Milwaukee outside of the GOP debate on Tuesday night.
But the protester likely didn’t expect the anti-America demonstration to result in an inspiring pro-America moment involving police officers.
When the protester was done trying to destroy the U.S. flag, three Milwaukee police officers reportedly used a fire extinguisher to put out the flag.
Police officers Joel Rossman, Jedidiah Thompson and Jutiki X were then captured on video picking up the flag, ceremoniously folding and then saluting it.
"The flag was taken to be inventoried for possible charges against the protester," the Milwaukee Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. "Milwaukee police officers later conducted a small, dignified ceremony to properly fold the flag before placing it on inventory."
