On Thursday, January 26, a FedEx courier, Matt Uhrin of Cedar Rapids, rushed into a group of protesters who were burning American flags on the Iowa City pedestrian mall in front of the Old Capitol Mall and tried to extinguish the flames, sparking a confrontation.
Here’s a video of the incident:

FedEx issued this rather noncommital statement on the Iowa City flag burning incident:
“FedEx has reviewed the facts of the incident and interviewed our courier to better understand what took place. As with all personnel issues, we are handling the matter internally.”
