American flags burned in Kettering
KETTERING, Ohio (WKRC) -- Five American flags were set on fire Wednesday night in Kettering.
Burning the American flag does count as free speech in protest, but police say this is arson.
People in the neighborhood say its disrespectful.
"I'm very upset by it," said John Collins. "It's Fourth of July we are putting our flags out for patriotism and a lot of people my parents grandparents fought and died this flag and give us a right to have it here. We are trying to be patriotic and do the right thing here somebody for some unknown and ridiculous reason decides to deface and burn them."
Whoever torched the flags could face arson and criminal damaging charges when they're caught.
