LSU Grad Student's Planned Flag Burning Ends Abruptly

A counter-protest, obscenities, and something of a crowd in a dangerous mood put an end to an LSU graduate student's planned flag burning at the LSU campus Parade Ground Wednesday. Police escorted Benjamin Haas to a waiting squad car "for his own safety." Mr. Haas told the media he had planned to burn the flag in response to a secretive theft and flag destruction last week on the LSU campus. Police have arrested a suspect in those and related crimes.
