"Police Hunt Poo Protesters" in Germany
This came around on my DFA list-serve:

Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature US flags into piles of dog poo in public parks.

Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth, said: "This has been going on for about a year now, and there must be 2,000 to 3,000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that time."

2. They Probably Aren't Violating Any Laws
Assuming that they aren't poo'ing on the sidewalk themselves
(which might violate some public decency statute if they got
caught in the act), they probably haven't broken any laws.
Is desecrating the flag of another nation a crime in Germany?

4. I saw the post yesterday, too. But that is funny. In the article it says:
Legal experts say there is no law against using faeces as a flag stand and the federal constitution is vague on the issue.
