National Guardsmen collect pieces of a flag burned in Ferguson (VIDEO)

The National Guard was deployed to Ferguson, Missouri, after riots and looting following the announcement that officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting death of Michael Brown, but what some soldiers found there was a complete disregard for respect for the American flag.

However, a small group of soldiers came along behind protesters after they burned an American flag and picked up the remaining torched pieces of the flag, which one protester referred to as “just a piece of cloth.”
