Interesting. I've never heard of that before. What's the background story of those two guys who tried to burn the flag ?

Nobody knows for sure. His name was William Errol Thomas and the boy is his 11 year old son. He was unemployed, 37 years old and on drugs at the time. Police report claimed he had some obvious mental issues. Which explains the decision of putting his 11 year old son in the middle of it all.  The police report said he snapped because he was upset that his wife, who had a history of drug use/arrests had been mentally institutionalized recently. Basically he was upset at America for all the wrong reasons. Nobody knows today if hes still alive or dead and the son/mother are nowhere to be found. Sad in ways because mental illness is real and takes lives but nobody does anything about it.
