A woman named Bree Newsombe scaled the South Carolina state capitol flagpole Saturday morning and removed the Confederate flag.
After repelling, Newsombe was arrested by capitol police and the flag was quickly restored.
In a twist to an already tragic story, a man and woman who killed two cops in a Las Vegas Pizzeria – then covered the officers with a Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”
The Las Vegas Journal reported,
The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.” source
