Community upset after American flag was burned in Marietta

Police in Lancaster County are looking for those responsible for setting an American flag on fire in Marietta over the weekend.  Susquehanna Regional Police police say overnight Saturday someone burned the American Flag that was flown in the square in Marietta.   The borough has since replaced the flag with a  new one but, it’s still on the minds  of those who live there.  Veterans like Marlin Dietz say it’s disrespectful for people living in the community.

” It’s quite upsetting I spent 20 years in the military  protecting the flag and constitution and what it stands for so when somebody does this it’s just not right, ” says Marlin Dietz of Marietta

Susquehanna Regional Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.

    Those responsible should be made to set all the flags on veterans graves during the holidays.

    Can the police please stay focused on drugs, murder, violence, rape etc.? They don’t even have enough manpower for those crimes. Our government kills innocent people every day, and sells it’s own citizens prosperity to make a quick buck. But oh no, somebody burned a flag? Hurry! Somebody has an opinion! Stop them! P.S. Mr. Dietz, you did not defend our Constitution because the people your orders came from abandoned the Constitution a long time ago.
