The following link has video of the vet!


A Veteran from Reno, Nev. has hit headlines after he took matters into his own hands yesterday and tore down a Mexican flag that was being illegally flown above a U.S. flag at a local business.
Local news station krnv News 4 had received calls yesterday afternoon from angry residents complaining about the Mexican flag. When the station sent a reporter to investigate the Veteran took the opportunity to make a statement in front of the cameras.

The man commented "I'm Jim Brossert and I took this flag down in honor of my country with a knife from the United States army.

Shouldn't have flown the Mexican flag above the US flag. Too bad, so sad.

This is what happens when you take the law into your own hands.
He should have just reported it, it was a stupid thing to do.

Considered a thief by SOME. Not by me. Do you HONESTLY think the authorities would have done anything about it? Please. The way I see it, their illegal actions at LEAST cancel each other out.

Flag Code - Position and manner of display

So you are admitting that the Flag Code is not upheld as Law?
I honestly think the authorities would have said something.

I would guess this man will be discharged.

You are the one who usually supports lawbreakers, are you racist against white people?
