Occidental College students put up one American flag on Saturday night for each life lost on 9/11: exactly 2,997.
They were all removed, destroyed and trashed by midnight. Vandals had put up posters and flyers that "shamed the victims of 9/11," <b>according to the Occidental College Republican Club</b>.
College officials said they were not sure who was responsible for the vandalism, but would investigate and take "appropriate disciplinary action," <b>CBS Los Angeles reports</b>.
Here's the scene of the vandalism.
The "victim-shaming" posters mention the death toll for Middle Eastern wars.
