Fox news has this story: “Three Yale Students Arrested for Burning American Flag.”

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Three Yale University students were arrested and charged with arson and other offenses after they allegedly set fire to an American flag hanging from the porch of a New Haven neighborhood home.

The three were arrested early Tuesday after officers on patrol spotted the burning flag and tore it from the pole where it was mounted to the house on Chapel Street, police said.

Said Hyder Akbar, 23, Nikolaos Angelopoulos, 19, and Farhad Anklesaria, also 19, were arrested on charges ranging from reckless endangerment to arson.

Freshmen Angelopoulos and Anklesaria are both foreign citizens. Anklesaria is British and Angelopoulos is Greek.

Akbar, a senior, was born in Pakistan, according to police, but is a U.S. citizen. Both Anklesaria and Angelopoulos had to turn over their passports.

Foreign students at Yale committing arson by burning somebody else’s American flag. Cowards.

But, this is the same Yale that admitted the former spokesman for the Taliban, so this comes as no surprise at all. Hell, they’ll probably be given full scholarships.

The students appeared dazed at their arraignment Tuesday morning when they entered Superior Court in leg irons and handcuffs, reported The New Haven Register. They remained jailed Tuesday night but were later released on bond.

They are being charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, breach of peace, criminal mischief in the third-degree, arson in the second-degree, conspiracy for arson, conspiracy for breach of peace, conspiracy for mischief and conspiracy for reckless endangerment.

Some charges were added by Assistant State’s Attorney Karen Roberg after the three were arrested and charged by New Haven police. She substituted the arson charges for reckless burning.

Throw the freakin’ book at them and bill their home countries for the prison bill.
