The Associated Press is reporting some 50 protesters marching down Broad Street in Philadelphia have stopped and are sitting in the roadway until Mississippi's state flag is removed from a lamp post ...

"The flag includes the Confederate emblem. The marchers, mostly supporters of Bernie Sanders, say the DNC protects this type of mentality.

"Philadelphia police are telling the marchers they can’t climb the pole and take the flag down. The crowd is heckling the officers, telling them to think for themselves.

"The flags of all 50 states fly from light poles flanking Broad Street."
