Oops! Four Charged With Arson at Occupy Charlotte Flag Burning

Yeah, and one of those accused was the press spokesman for Occupy Charlotte:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Four protesters, including the spokesman of Occupy Charlotte, were charged after setting fire to two American flags early Friday near the Occupy camp in Center City, police said.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police weren't sure earlier if the four men who set fire to two flags were associated with the Occupy Charlotte movement.

But, WBTV has learned that one of the men is the media spokesman for the Occupy group and has been the contact person listed on press releases from Occupy Charlotte.
These idiots basically destroyed their encampment. See: "Occupy Charlotte turmoil after 4 accused of burning U.S. flag." There's video at the link featuring an additional organizer, who's freakin' at the public relations nightmare. Because, you know, these four were no doubt just fringe transients who came out of nowhere.
