Well the story IS true. Here's a link to the TV station's website, with a link to a video clip of the story:
http://www.krnv.com/Global/story.asp?S=7162515
The best part of this is the comments from viewers/readers below the story, decrying the vigilante behavior of the veteran who cut down the flag:
I believe the actions the American citizen did, was wrong in taking the Flag the way he did. I don't believe that it is necessary to be hostel when defending the Flag. If a law is broken it is the responsibility of the citizen to report it and let Law enforcement handle the situation.

In my mind this man was just looking for attention.

Congratulations to the owner for not acting in the same manner as the veteran did. I hope he presses charges on this man for also braking the law. Remember the law is the law.

The man who tore down the flag is a disgrace to this country.

How dare you people call him a hero. This type of pull-your-military-knife-out-and-challenge-obvious-pacifists-to-a-fight is the same attitude that has us in the terrible state of world affairs we are in.

Would it have been too much trouble to talk to these Hispanic gentlemen before violently slashing the flag down and leaving the Mexican flag on the ground? All intimidation.

I am a white American male and had no idea that it is illegal to fly a flag from another country above ours. I applaud the store owner for keeping his cool and not resorting to the same barbaric tactics. By supporting this veteran you are supporting an intolerant criminal.

Travis Widner, Portland, OR
While I originally applauded the citizen and veteran of our military for correcting the flag issue in Reno yesterday, I am concerned about the impression of vigilante-ism the act will have on our society in general.

While a law was broken and needed to be corrected, I believe a less forceful means may have helped to build a bridge of understanding rather than the forceful act of destruction of private property that was exacted.

Perhaps a boycott and picketing of the establishment would have impacted this business owners operation, or a verbal discussion of the fact that he had broken the law would have been better.

Regardless of the owners intention, if individual citizens start taking law enforcement into their own hands, the brave men and women we expect to be the thin blue line between us and anarchy could be caught in the middle of an eventual firestorm.

I am disappointed at the reactions reflected here in these comments. I'm confident Jesus would have acted with more civility by asking the owner to correct the situation without a confrontation.

Many of the comments that I see here reflect a vengeful display of ignorance and intolerance exasperated by group-think, with all the restraint of compassion and forgiveness thrown out the door, then having the audacity to claim God is on their side.

God is not American.

I salute the veteran for doing what the pussy cops wouldn't.

Bravo, sir. May the beaners stand up or shut the fuck up and learn to get along with everyone else.

yeah that's bullshit, the store owner couldn't comment:

1. He didn't speak English
2. He was afraid of being deported
3. He didn't want his face on camera so rednecks would hunt him down, peel the skin off his body, pour syrup all over him and stick him on a pole in a fireant bed.

here in Houston they are taking over. They don't have car insurance and drive like shit. If people don't wake up soon, we are all going to be fucked.

What you need is for the Asians to move into town... because then even the beaners will insure their cars.

Ok, it is against the law to be in this country illegally. It is illegal to drive with out a license or car insurance, it is illegal to get a social security card by stealing another persons identity. Why aren't you concerned with those laws? Fucking cunt. Law enforcement has its hands tied with illegals. Give them to ICE and they are released and told to come back when their court date is. I hope more people do what that guy did.

I posted this on my favorite message board, "the Hub."

That was sarcasm, if you couldn't catch it.

Anyway, it's my schools' message board. I'd link you to it, but you can't view it without a student ID (if you went to OU, your old ID will work).

Look was this hippie liberal college hipster cuntfuck said:

When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross."

-Sinclair Lewis
Ugh. What does that have to do with ANYTHING? That's a good quote, granted, but seriously. What the veteran did had nothing to do with religion. It had to do with him being offended by this asshole spic insulting his country. How would the Mexicans feel if we immigrated there and started flying our flag above theirs?

Much respect to fellow veteran, he did what I would have done had I had the chance.

Why is it permissible or fashionable to break the law because it is the cause of the month but, profane to do it if that law has been one of the bedrock tenants of our nation?

This country needs to regain it's balls:
http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagetiq.html
When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace. The order of precedence for flags generally is National flags (US first, then others in alphabetical order in English), State (host state first, then others in the order of admission) and territories (Washington DC, Puerto Rico, etc.), Military (in order of establishment: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard), then other.
Good for the vet. No way should the Mexican flag be flown over
ours in this country. That's an insult.

Linger longer and learn something;

.... Military (in order of establishment: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard), then other.
I never knew that the Marine Corps was established before the Navy. After reading a bunch of history books, I always assumed that with the Marines on Navy ships, the Navy came first.

Great trivia question and respect to the Jarheads on the board. :action-sm

I believe it is time that we just nuke ourselves to get rid of all the dumb ass soccer moms and the metrosexuals. About time somebody stood up as an American and gave the big ole FU to the illeagle mexicans here. and FU to anyone who complains about it.
