Opinion: Flag vandalism is unacceptable

Vandalism in Middlebury Cemetery. Along the road from the tennis courts at Middlebury College to Route 30, someone has been destroying flags.
Not only is this disrespectful of the American flag, it is trespassing on private property (family gravesites), but also disrespectful of the veterans that fought for our country.
As you walk or drive down the row, you can see the flags have been ripped off and only the wooden dowels are left. Local police and college security have been alerted.
Perhaps the cemetery association should totally fence in the cemetery so pedestrians have to walk around the perimeter? Hopefully this situation will be addressed at the college.
