Norwalk family fears flag burning was racist act
A Norwalk family says someone burned an American flag on the back of one of their cars and they believe it was an act of racism.
McEdward Desir says he came out of the house to go to work Friday when he discovered the burnt remnants of the flag on the back of his car. The Desirs are African-American and moved into the Bartlett Avenue home a few months ago. Desir says his neighbors have been great, and says he doesn't know where the hateful act is coming from.
Desir says he is worried for his family. ?We could come back from work one day and the house might be burned down,? says Desir.
Norwalk police collected evidence and are investigating the flag burning.
