Harahan woman booked on theft, desecration of 'racist' Confederate flag on Fourth of July


"A Harahan woman has been arrested and accused of desecrating a flag after allegedly stealing and tearing a Confederate battle flag on the Fourth of July.Harahan police said Madelyn Christina, 18, was caught on surveillance video stealing the rebel banner from a flag pole in front of a neighbor’s residence on Colonial Club Drive.Responding police interviewed Christina, who “freely admitted stealing the flag because it was racist,” according to a department news release.Police said that when they tried to retrieve the flag from Christina’s vehicle, they found marijuana, cocaine and alprazolam.
The flag was torn because Christina had ripped it off the pole, according to Harahan Police Chief Tim Walker.Christina was booked on three counts of drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, theft under $100 and flag desecration, police said. Five states have laws making desecration of the Confederate flag illegal,  Louisiana is one of them, making desecration of the Confederate banner just as forbidden as that of the United States flag."
