Cenk Uygur ( host of The Young Turks discusses a veteran attempting to save a U.S. flag from a protest.

"Michelle Manhart is a veteran having serviced in the U.S. Air Force with strong feelings toward the flag of the country she swore to protect but may have taken her devotion a little too far into the 'no flag, no country' territory of thought. A group of protestors at Valdosta State University tried to walk on and burn an American flag in protest and when Manhart figured out what was happening she was having none of that. She stole the flag and held it hostage, even after police arrived to pry it from her and give it back to the protestors. Manhart, despite fighting with police, was not tasered, shot by accident, or even really roughed up that much. Instead she was given a ban from the university and a stern talking to from police.

Manhart has a checkered past with the U.S. flag, using it in the past to pose nude for various publications and organizations."

Should Manhart have been allowed to stop the flag burning that was planned? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
