A California mother is outraged after thieves "robbed from the grave" when they stole the American flags from a memorial for her son who died fighting in Afghanistan.

Marsha Gonsalves, of Turlock, Calif., said she put up 34 new ones outside her home when vandals snatched the four American flags decorating the memorial last week.

i’d get a big mean dog and stake the end of its chain down smack in the middle of the display (with a dog house of course for inclement weather). that’s low down, to steal flags out of a private yard.

I'm sure a nice American flag fetches good cash money at the local flea market.

There're obviously a great many among us that care not a rats arse over things American and those who sacrifice on her behalf. They're just here for the free stuff.
