A video of a young boy ripping an American flag out of someone's yard and then flinging it to the ground as his mother watches has ignited a firestorm of strong reactions on the internet.

Writer Marie Oakes shared the controversial video on Twitter with the caption: "Children are being raised to desecrate the flag." The purported security camera footage shows a child riding on a scooter along with an adult female, likely to be his mother. While traveling down the sidewalk on his scooter, the boy attempts to rip up a small American flag standing in a yard. He misses on the first attempt to uproot the flag, but comes back to tear up the flag. He then throws the flag onto the ground.
