Why Would a Dutch Teen Burn an American Flag?

Why Would a Dutch Teen Burn an American Flag?

Burning the American flag may not be illegal in this country, but it is not something Clinton police were pleased to see while out on patrol. Especially from a group of local teenagers, one of them being from the Netherlands.

A Clinton patrolman stopped a group of teenage males who were burning a flag in a Lower Center Street parking lot last week.

NJ.com reported that according to police, 19-year old Matthew den Hollander of Pittstown drove the teens, ages 14, 15, and 16, to the parking lot. Den Hollander parked in a handicapped space, and three of the teens, also from Pittstown, pulled the handicapped sign from the ground.

The boys then stole an American flag from a Main Street business, and the 17-year-old boy from the Netherlands used a lighter to set it on fire.
