Brooklyn - State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) has issued the following statement tonight in response to the the protest in Fort Greene Park where two American flags were burned:

"As a proud American, I was disheartened to learn that an American Flag was burned tonight in historic Fort Greene Park. It is a sad day for all of us to watch this despicable act of hatred take place on sacred Brooklyn ground. I salute the many pro-Americans who showed up and stood tall in the name of our rights and liberties.

To all, remember that freedom is not free. Never forget it. And fly those flags. The stars and stripes, the red, white, and blue, are not going anywhere. These colors don't run."
