Hero Delivery Guy Saves American Flags from Protesters Fire

The man of the hour is a FedEx guy from Iowa who was filmed saving a few American flags from being burned at an Iowa City protest.

A small group of angry liberals had gathered in front of a mall to protest โ€œracial and social injustice.โ€ Somehow they reasoned that the best way to protest would be to burn the flags of the most just nation to ever exist. As the protesters prepared to burn the flags, a disgusted FedEx worker (whose actions are not connected with his employer), swept in and saved the flags from the fire.

In the aftermath police arrested 21-year old Kelli Ebensberger and 23-year old Paul Osgerby for violating the cityโ€™s public burn ordinance, which is a misdemeanor offense. The group did not have a permit for the fire, so itโ€™s not that they were burning a flag that was the problem, itโ€™s that they had started an unlawful fire.

While some on Twitter argue that the man was wrong for taking the flags (which were the private property of the protesters), most viewed him as a hero.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
