Hoodlums accomplished senseless act

Destroying the flag atop Peak 1 was nothing more than a senseless act by hoodlums. 

It may have been an attempt to make a statement. However, done incognito, it becomes an act of cowardice, symbolic of the terrorist acts our country is dedicated to defeating.

Moreover, protesting is one thing, but destroying property not one’s own is a crime.

Had these criminal/cowards really wanted to make a statement by this seditious act, they would have left their own charred remains up there along with those of our flag.
