Nazi Flag Found Flying In Wyoming

An investigation is under way after someone replaced an American flag with a Nazi flag at a park in southeastern Wyoming, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Police found the crumpled American flag shoved in the corner of the band shell at Washington Park in Laramie on Monday morning, according to the Laramie Boomerang. Officers folded it and then hung it back on the flagpole. The Nazi flag was taken as evidence.

Jeremy Shaver of the Anti-Defamation League called the incident “appalling and outrageous.”
