PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - Bob Comans is hoping police will find the people responsible for causing a mess in his driveway.

The Pascagoula man said sometime overnight, someone removed the Mississippi state flag from his house on Jackson Avenue and burned it. The flag was found on the ground next to the words "Blacks Rule."

Comans calls it a "copycat" crime because of the heated debated over the Confederate emblem on the corner of the state flag.

Comans said he proudly displays the Mississippi flag because it's a symbol of heritage, not hate.

Hear more from Comans and local police investigating the case tonight on WLOX News at 6pm.
