Flag vigilante, part two: Vet sentenced for tearing down Mexican flag

It wasn’t his flag, the only reason it was left flying without the American flag beside it seems to be due to a simple misunderstanding, and the laws regarding flag etiquette that he chose to enforce himself instead of alerting the cops are unenforceable anyway. But these dopey stories are usually good for 200 comments, so go crazy.

The sentence — six months, suspended pending 48 hours of community service, anger management classes, and replacement of the flag — does seem ridiculously excessive. Click the image to watch.
