Immigration Protesters Desecrated US Flag in Arizona-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email with a photo that says the American flag was desecrated by protesters at an immigration rally in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Truth:
The photo is real and was taken at a gathering of proponents of SB 1070, the Arizona immigration law. Opponents of the immigration bill laid an American flag that had writing on it on the ground in an area just outside where supporters of the bill were assembled during the singing of the National Anthem.

FoxTV11 of Phoenix  aired a portion of a video on August 4, 2010 that surfaced on YouTube and said that it viral on the Internet:
