MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -

Middlebury College has suspended a student who took part in the desecration of a 9/11 memorial on campus.

A photo from the campus newspaper showed protesters removing nearly 3,000 small American flags from the lawn outside Mead Chapel. Only one of the protesters was a Middlebury student. She was brought before a college disciplinary board, which found she violated the school's "respect for persons and respect for property" policy. She's been suspended for one year.
