Some news just makes you cringe, and this is one of those stories. Who, in their right mind, could steal this sacred symbol from a mom with a son in the service?
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)- A Colorado Springs woman calls it unforgivable after someone stole an American flag from her front yard. The flag was a celebration of her son who is serving in the U.S. Army.
“I went in the house and was in there five minutes at the most and when I came out someone had stolen the flag,” said victim Kathy Dawson.
“But I think it’s disrespectful to the Army, to my son, and to the flag to do something like that,” said Dawson.
A neighbor’s surveillance camera captured the crime.
Douglas Swain stepped forward with the video after seeing the story on the news in hopes someone will recognize the suspect.
