Petition for FedEx Driver Halting Flag Burning Protesters Launched

Petition for FedEx Driver Halting Flag Burning Protesters LaunchedA petition has been launched for the FedEx driver, Matt Uhrin, who intervened when a group of protesters were burning American flags in Iowa, in the hopes that Uhrin keeps his job and has been praised by many as a patriot and a hero.

The individual who launched the petition stated, “Let’s make sure Matt Uhrin keeps his job at FedEx. He was standing up for our American flag and should be commended, not punished!”

As of late Friday, 4,073 signatures had been gathered toward the goal of 5,000 and although the petition site sends the signer to donate for the upkeep of the site, donations are not required.

Also on Friday, FedEx issued a statement and does not clarify whether Uhrin is facing any disciplinary action or will be fired. The FedEx statement said, “FedEx has reviewed the facts of the incident and interviewed our courier to better understand what took place. As with all personnel issues, we are handling the matter internally.”

Two of the protesters, Kelli Ebensberger, 21, of Iowa City, and Paul Osgerby, 23, of Ames, were arrested for open burning, a misdemeanor in Iowa, punishable by up to 30 days in jail or a fine of up to $625 and are scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 23, 2017.

Osgerby attempted to qualify his actions on his Facebook page but many disagreed including one veteran who spoke his mind.

As a result of the flag burning, Veterans in Iowa City will be patrolling the streets on Saturday and plan to stop all flag burning they run across and plan to confiscate those flags that are being used to not support this nation and veterans.
