(FOX)- A Southern California college was investigating reports of vandalism to a 9/11 memorial on its campus, school officials said Sunday.

The Los Angeles Daily News reported that the memorial at Occidental College consisted of 2,997 American flags, one for every person who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. The college’s Republican club placed the flags in the quad at the Eagle Rock campus Saturday night.

However, the club reported Sunday morning that the memorial had been vandalized. The club wrote on its Facebook page that the vandals had “crushed, snapped, and threw in the garbage every single flag. Not one was left on the ground.”

The club also said that posters and flyers on campus had allegedly shamed the victims of the terror attacks.

Occidental College said they are investigating the incident and “will take disciplinary action.”

I think it says more that this isn’t even surprising anymore.

Ignorant people are destroying memorials to the thousands of people that lost their lives in the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor for what?

Because they have been inundated with false information regarding police shootings?

Because washed up NFL players are refusing to stand for the national anthem?

Because slavery?

The motive behind the vandalism hasn’t been uncovered, but it’s clear that patriotism and decency in general is a thing of the past…
