S.C. Lawmakers Debate Confederate Flag Removal


The South Carolina Legislature is set to return to Columbia Monday and discuss what to do with the Confederate battle flag at the Capitol grounds, after the killing of nine black churchgoers in Charleston last month by a man police said was photographed holding Confederate flags and regalia, sparked calls for its removal. Several bills have been filed, but details such as when to bring down the flag, whether to put another flag in its place and what kind of ceremony should mark the removal are not specified. The Senate will debate the flag bill first, and Sen. Larry Martin expects several amendments discussing whether to keep the flagpole and put a different flag on it. The Senate opened its discussions on the flag with an amendment to put the rebel banner's future up to a public vote. Debate was expected to last several hours. Get More at NBC News
