This is OLD and the man doing this was trespassing. He is lucky he wasn’t shot.

It is old news. At least 2 years. I don’t have You Tube access at work. But I do remember this story.

It’s not immigration, it’s an invasion.

Good idea, just take the American flag and tramp on the Mexican flag. They don’t deserve to have the American flag. If Mexico is such a great country, move. If not, obey the laws of this country. Only one flag (by law at least) is allowed to fly above the American Flag. That is the U.N. flag. However, even that pile of garbage will not fly above my National Ensign. I can tell you that!!

Yep....it’s old but a good reminder of what this country is all about. It’s illegal to fly any flag above the American flag in this country and the Vet was enforcing the law. If the Mexicans can’t understand this, they need to go home.

This is old, but I still remember it vividly.

Was he taking a risk as Clemenza points out? Yeah. But I stand behind him all the way, even if he was trespassing.

It is an invasion. La Raza makes it clear, and Obama’s last POS appointment to the SJC makes it clear he agrees with La Raza too.

I fear this is going to turn into more than just trespassing in our lifetime.

We may look back at this Vet as being someone who was firing the first shot in defense.

No he wasn't trespassing and he was never charged. He was on the public right of way. He did damage someone elses property. I know him and he is a good guy and a vet. He just lost it when he saw the situation.

It’s not illegal, it is a violation of the U.S. flag code

I havent heard of any arrests of stupid, misinformed or malevolent Americans or others being arrested by the flag police for disrespecting the US flag

It is an invasion. I live in an area where we are swampped. You go in the stores here and you WILL be a minority. Our schools are over-run and these people have huge families. Within a generation we will be screwed. Look at California and that is our future unless we stop and REVERSE the situation. Here is the guy on F&F defending his position.

My sister, who doesn’t have a drivers license and is disabled, finally found transportation from her rural home to the Social Security Office 40-miles away. She finally arrived only to discover it was ‘Hispanic Day’, and no one would serve her.

I did not like the in your face comments of the "journalist" after the event. Seems like he was trying to provoke.

The sidewalk is public property, so he wasn’t trespassing. He could be charged with theft or vandalism, but that’s about it.

I did. He was right in asking them.

Why criticize the journalist for trying to provoke? What do you think the deadbeats who put the flags up in the first place were trying to do? Play nice?

Agreed. I do respect the fact that he put himself in that position by doing what he thought was the right thing to do. It was a small act of courage in a hurricane of events. Missed by most people, but we can appreciate it.

I didn’t mean that to sound snippy, but I was referring to Clemenza’s post, and it may indeed be true that by grabbing that hoist, cutting it and taking the flag, he might have crossed the public sidewalk to the private property.

I think that is what she meant.

Only one flag (by law at least) is allowed to fly above the American Flag. That is the U.N. flag.

You are wrong, wrong, wrong.

United States Flag Code

(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.

The two Hispanic looking men were likely just confused and had no idea that they were acting improperly.

Perhaps it would have been better for someone to have quietly spoken to the owner of the store and explained our customs regarding the U.S. flag.

You forgot the next section after your highlighted portion:

"That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations."

I hate it, but its true. In New York that f#@$@%#kin UN flag is displayed in a superior position to our flag.

Tell me, if you lived down in Mexico and had a flag pole, what would common sense tell you? That perhaps the Mexican flag would fly on top? These mexicans may not have been responsible for that flag pole. Neither of them may have been the owner but they knew it was wrong. Don't fall for that line that too many immigrants do now days. Caught in something they don't like or don't want to do, it's no habla English.
