Watch: Disgusting Moment Vandal Rips 7 Flags, Flips Off Police


A Colorado woman is wanted for vandalizing 7 American flags in a broad daylight.

Security footage outside of the Colorado sheriff’s office headquarters in Golden, Colorado, caught the incident on tape.

“After talking extensively to our security camera along Jefferson County Parkway (sadly, no sound) she used her tallest finger to let us know we are #1,” the sheriff’s office said on X, in reference to the woman sticking her middle finger up at the camera as she walked towards the flag.

“She then showed us her tattooed arms, the object she planned to use to perform her desecration, and proceeded to rip to shreds seven of the American flags we have posted around our headquarters in Golden.”

The woman can be seen giving the camera a curtsy as she walked away from the scene of her crime.

The flags were raised in honor of fallen police officers, the sheriff’s department said.

KXRM-TV reported that the woman desecrated a total of seven flags around the sheriff’s office.

The woman “faces a misdemeanor charge of Criminal Mischief,” given that her actions are protected under the First Amendment.

Notwithstanding that such actions are protected under the First Amendment, this woman’s behavior is completely unacceptable.

Not only is she vandalizing government property, she’s also showing a complete lack of respect to police officers who have served her community.

Moreover, she’s desecrating the flag that has been a symbol of freedom for millions of people around the world.

It’s the flag that represents the country that provides this woman with the freedoms to act like such a hooligan.

Countless men and women have given their lives to uphold the rights and ideals that the American flag represents.

That’s why respect for the flag is something that every American should be able to agree on.

Do you love our flag and everything it represents?

While laws cannot prohibit the desecration of the American flag, anyone who thinks it’s a good idea to do so is rejecting everything America stands for.

If someone hates the United States so much that they’re willing to tear down the nation’s flag, they should ask themselves why they even want to be an American.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
