Police said Jamie M. Connors, 21, of Brooklyn, was drunk when he pulled several flags from their staffs in view of local veterans who were holding a vigil on the square.
Lt. Michael Dzezinski said Connors initially was charged only with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. More serious charges of desecration of a flag and insults to national or commonwealth flags,that carry possible fines and a prison term, were added after witnesses were interviewed, Dzezinski said.Got that right? Multiple flags destroyed by this guy...in front of a group of war veterans...on Veterans Day...who were holding a vigil for their fallen comrades. I don't care how drunk this guy was, he should be prosecuted for every possible crime and charge that is on the books, even if the laws are outdated and go back to the 1700s. Kudos the Carlisle, PA police for increasing the charges. I hope Connors enjoys prison.
