Guilty Of Tearing Mexican Flag

An Air Force Veteran Convicted For Ripping A Mexican Flag:



Peter Lynch attempted to replace the flag but student group El Centro de la Raza pushed forward with the charges. The sentence received was a bit harsh; six months probation and 48 hours of community service. Also, he must take anger management classes and replace the flag. Why did he do it? Lynch has his reasons.

Thanks for posting news about the heroic and patriotic Peter Lynch, the Air Force veteran who took down a Mexican flag after he found it flying on U.S. soil without the Stars and Stripes flying high above it on the same -- or an adjacent -- flagpole on the University of New Mexico campus!

Despite the fact that a jury found him guilty of criminal damage to property, I say he did the right thing and should be pardoned by Gov. Bill Richardson. After all, people have fought and died for our flag!

That said, I invite all who feel the same way to join me in a new effort launched today.
