We're all FedExers now

From now on I'll give as much business as I can to Federal Express.
A FedEx driver in Iowa City, Iowa, simply could not sit idly by when he saw a group of protesters setting fire to an American flag on the city’s cold streets yesterday afternoon.
Matt Uhrin leaped from his truck with a fire extinguisher, put out the fire, and took one of the flags.
Uhrin got into a physical altercation with a couple of the protesters. He sprayed one with the first extinguisher and pushed one person off of him. 
While the act of burning the flag is protected free speech, two members of the protest still found themselves facing charges when police showed up. Paul Ogersby and Kelli Ebensberger were both charged with violating Iowa City’s public burn ordinance since they did not obtain the proper permits for burning in public. They could face up to a $625 fine and possibly, but unlikely, thirty days in jail.
