WTC on Sept 11, 2001A private college in the Los Angeles area is investigating the vandalism of a 9/11 memorial that occurred this past weekend. 

Occidental College's Republican Club placed a flag for each victim killed in the attack at the school's Eagle Rock campus. Last Sunday morning, they reported all of the flags had been thrown in the garbage.

Brad Dacus with the California-based Pacific Justice Institute suspects the vandals "despise" the United States and sympathize with the terrorists who carried out the attack.

"That is most disturbing to see taking place on a college campus here in the United States of America," he says.

The vandals cannot claim that desecrating the memorial is their right. It was not an act of free speech, he says.

"It's another thing to intimidate and vandalize someone else's speech and think they can get away with it," the attorney complains.

Occidental issued a statement saying if and when those responsible are found, disciplinary action will be taken.
