FedEx driver puts out burning American flag in Iowa
FedEx employee, Matt Uhrin of Cedar Rapids, charged toward a group of protesters who were burning American flags in front of the Old Capitol Mall. He brought a fire extinguisher to knock down the flames, and was engaged in some minor physical encounters with the protesters.
FedEx initially reported in a statement that they are handling the incident internally and are interviewing the courier. In case he faces disciplinary action or termination, an ipetition.com online petition was established on Friday to demand that Uhrin keeps his job. Over 9,000 signatures were submitted by Saturday morning at 11:00 am. CT.
Also by Saturday morning, January 28, 2017, FedEx reported Uhrin will be back at work on Monday.
