Just saw this on msn.com (Veteran cuts down Mexican Flag) - Merged
This may already have a thread, but this is just to good to let go. A guy in Reno, Nevada was so angry when he saw a mexican restaurant flying the mexican flag above the American flag, he got his K-Bar out and cut the mexican flag down. BTW, he did announce himself as an army veteran... The whole thing was caught on a local news station.

Good for the veteran!
I won't, however, hold my breath waiting for the owner to be prosecuted for violating federal law....
More's the pity. Didn't know? Would anyone try that in Mexico...? Wouldn't common sense tell one not to do so? Sorry, there I go again....

Plus, he's now educated a few folks in proper flag etiquete.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know

Thank God! It seems that at least a part of this country still remembers what that flag means. I spent four years in the military as did a lot of members of this forum. I watched men suffer and die for that Flag. I would have been just as upset as this man. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!
God Bless America!!

+1...... Unfortunatly, in the southwest, it is getting worse and worse, a lot of people feel the same way that this guy did. Veteran or not.

Good for him. This country needs a lot more men just like him.
It is sad to say it but I believe that this country is being torn apart from the inside by people who are not even citizens. I fear we may see a war of sorts erupt at some point in the not so distant future because of this very issue.

We need more people like him to stand up for what is right.
I would like to see a follow up of the owner of the resturant being charged with federal charges, they have video proof .

+1 to that guy...
if I ever run into him in the bar... his tab for the night is on me, that's for sure!

I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
