CNN reports that Joseph Caputo - who was wearing a baseball shirt, gloves and the flag as a cape when he hopped the fence - was immediately taken into custody.

Calls started coming, people started coming in, and other offices started calling in,” Knudson said Wednesday. The...

    A group was fed up with waiting, so they got a shovel and dug up a patch of grass next to Nathan Bedford Forrests grave and statue in a public park in the Medical District. The group says they wanted the statue and remains removed for a long time, because he was a Confederate soldier, a KKK leader and a slave trader. If hes gone, some of this racism and race-hate might be gone, said Isaac Richmond with Commission on Religion and Racism. We got a fresh shovel full, and we hope that everybody else will follow suit and...

    Have our morals, ethics and standards fallen so low today that we cannot even acknowledge evil when it is standing proud and tall on the steps of our White House cloaked in our American Flag? We have watched President Obama honor plenty of fallen Americans, but the majority of them just happen to be crooks, thieves, illegal aliens or followers of Islam! What happened to honoring our fallen Military? The men and women who fight for our freedoms. What happened to honoring our fallen citizens? The hard-working Americans who have been killed as a result of our own Presidents failed...

    A Gastonia family has removed a Confederate flag from their truck after they said someone fired half a dozen gunshots at them this weekend. The shooting happened Saturday night and bullets narrowly missed a passenger's head. The family showed Eyewitness News reporter Ken Lemon the damage and told him they believe they were targeted. The father of two, who did not want to be identified, took it down and told Lemon it's not worth flying anymore.

    House Speaker John Boehner ordered that flags at the U.S. Capitol be flown at half-mast Tuesday to honor the victims of last week's tragic shooting spree in Chattanooga, Tenn. "The flags @USCapitol stand at half-staff today in honor of the brace service members we lost in #Chattanooga," the Ohio Republican posted to Twitter, along with a photo of the U.S. Capitol. Congressional leaders as well as the White House have faced growing criticism for not flying flags at the two buildings to acknowledge the four Marines and one Navy sailor who died last week after a Kuwaiti-born gunman attacked two...

    This Sunday marks three days since an Islamist gunman opened fire Thursday on military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing five unarmed servicemen and wounding a policeman. President Barack Obama still has not ordered the lowering of the U.S. flag to half-staff at the White House and federal properties as a sign of respect and mourning for those killed, even though he (and former President George W. Bush) did so for previous mass killings by lone gunmen. In contrast it was only a matter of hours after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last month before Obama bathed the White House...

    A black Mississippi man who often dressed in Confederate regalia to support the state flag has died in a one-car accident. The Highway Patrol says 49-year-old Anthony Hervey was killed Sunday when the 2005 Ford Explorer he was driving left the roadway and overturned on Mississippi Highway 6 in Lafayette County. A passenger in Harvey's car, Arlene Barnum, tells The Associated Press that Hervey swerved and crashed after another vehicle carrying four or five young black men pulled up alongside them, yelling and looking angry.
