Police recently answered a 911 call from the Redwood Country Flea Market in Wallingford, Connecticut. It seems that a shopper called the emergency number because he was offended when he saw a vendor selling Confederate and Nazi historical memorabilia. The man later told local media, "I was shaking and almost vomiting." He also complained that the Confederate items were "not authentic" and that the seller told him "he was selling so much he can't keep it in stock."
