Fifteen people who took part in a “Respect the Flag” demonstration over the summer have been charged with making terroristic threats.

According to the Daily Beast, the accused parties drove “at least four pickup trucks, each flying confederate rebel flags,” to a black child’s birthday party in Douglasville, Georgia, on July 25 and allegedly yelled racial slurs at the guests.


The drivers were also charged with violating Georgia’s Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, and two members were charged with assaulting a man at a nearby gas station.
