CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE: Woman Climbs Flagpole to Remove Confederate Flag in Front of SC Statehouse

climberI’ll give her this, that was quite a climb.

The Confederate flag has been temporarily removed from in front of the South Carolina Statehouse.

An unidentified black woman was about halfway up the more than 30-foot steel flagpole just after dawn Saturday when State Capitol police told her to come down. Instead, she continued up and removed the flag before returning to the ground.

The woman and another man who had entered the wrought-iron fence surrounding the flag were arrested.
