here's the text of the article


Veteran Removes Illegal Mexican Flag, May Be Charged
Reno resident cuts down Mexican flag flying above U.S. flag after outcry

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. I'm a veteran, I am not going to see this done to my country. if they want to fight us, then they need to be men, and they need to come and fight us, but I want somebody to fight me for this flag. They're not going to get it back."

The hispanic store owner who witnessed the incident would not make comment on camera but told krnv over the phone that he was flying the flag as a mark of solidarity to the hispanic community. Pro-immigration protests have been ongoing in the area all weekend after raids were conducted by authorities in the area last week.

The store owner said he is an American citizen and did not know what he was doing was against the law. However, according to federal law it is illegal to fly any flag above the U.S. flag, and if flying more than one they must be on separate poles and be of an equal size.

The Reno police department has told krnv that Brossert will faces charges for theft if the store owner files a police report of what happened.

Similar incidents have previously been reported in Maywood, CA., Tucson, Arizona, and Jupiter, Florida.

The city government should have informed the store owner that he was breaking the law IF he didn't know he was. I don't think ANY country allows another's flag to fly over their own though. Would the Mexican government allow the US flag to fly ABOVE their flag??

He should have been fined and/or ticketed immediately and the mexican flag removed but had that happened then the ACLU or some other organization would have started screaming discrimination.

It opened for me, and it is a very ignorant/insulting action. I can't speak for other countries but flag protocol in Canada is clear. The National Flag always takes precedence over all other national flags when flown in Canada. It looks like Canada and the US share pretty much the same protocol The example in the article breaks pretty much every national flag code I can find. Strange though, I can't find any reference anywhere to any penalties for violating the code. Could that be correct?

If the store owner didn't know not to fly the flag like that, it's just another reason he shouldn't be here. gota love them vets.

I commend this guy for what he's done. He stood up for the United States and all who fight for what it stands for.




I recite this, every time I raise the American Flag, at my campsite.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands:
one Nation under God, indivisible,
With Liberty and Justice for all.



A big Thanks to all Veterans of the United States of America.

It would have boiled my blood to see that. Had I seen it the store owner would have had a U.S. Marine dragging him to the roof to take it down.

Folks, I am NOT a vet, but believe me I am a proud AMERICAN, from the hills of WV. I just came home from a dinner for Retired Letter Carriers from the US Postal Service. The union gave EVERY VET at the dinner a special cap w an Eagle and "Don't Ruffle My Feathers" on it. Afterward I asked all the NON vets to give the vets a standing ovation, and I said "If it weren't for you veterans doing what you did, we (Letter Carriers) couldn't do what we do and have done." The applause was thunderous - it was for all of you, too. Hope you heard it.
