Destruction of the Confederate Flag

This was an interesting twist in the Matthew Booster hate crime trial. As part of his punishment, Booster will forfeit the confederate flag that flew above his truck on the day he harassed a dark skinned boy. The flag will be turned over to police, and then the police will destroy it.

According to the Register Guard, Booster said in court that the flag was about “Southern Pride” and not about racism.

This is one of the most unique punishments for a crime I have heard of in a long time. What do you think?
