Don't you think he was temperorily insane at seeing his country so dishonored by a dishonorable act of a really ignorant and disrespectful person. You have to remember this man had risked his life for his country.

All he has to say is the sight of it caused him to have a temporary emotional breakdown.

How do the illegals HONOR our Country by committing crimes much greater than taking down a flag?

Do you know the law? Or anyone in this thread who has been lashing out illegals are criminals ?

Theft is definitely a law, being an illegal...

That is still be determined in some states:

Another choice could be that he was making a citizens arrest for the crime of putting another flag above the flag of the United States. Either way, the act was justified. Being illegally in a country is not justified.

No, it is not Mach. That just happened to be one pro-illegal judge is all. He proved he can't think also and it would be struck down by the SC.

He'll get a slap on the wrist, probation, a fine, or some type of diversion program. Petty larceny and vandalism at best. He took full responsibility in the clip, and seems prepared to take any punishment thrown his way.
