The burning of an Ukrainian Flag in our neighborhood.

March 15, 2022 8:11 PM

I have been sickened all day thinking that someone burned an Ukrainian flag that one of our amazing neighbors had out in support of the Ukrainian people.  I want to share the link to the police report with a number if anyone can help to find who was responsible for this.,
