The footage above was shared by Bryan Colombo via Twitter on Oct. 14, who said the flag was burned by members of the Antifa movement who were counter-protesting the Patriot Prayer march.
The flag was burned at the site of the police-involved shooting of an African-American man in September, he said. JB
