WATCH: City Removes Mississippi Flags From Broad Street

The most notable issue — aside from the suffocating humidity — was that a group of demonstrators had held a sit-in on Broad Street near Passyunk Avenue to protest the Mississippi state flag, which was dangling from a light pole.

Another Mississippi state flag hung on Broad near Mifflin, said First Deputy Managing Director Brian Abernathy. Both were removed today because they attracted complaints...

    WATCH: City Removes Mississippi Flags From Broad Street
    The state flag features a Confederate emblem, which upset neighbors and protesters. So far, so good. That was the message Police Commissioner Richard Ross delivered late Monday afternoon, as protesters marched through the city amid record heat on the first day of the Democratic National Convention.
