You never fly a flag above another. They can be equal height. But anything else is actually a symbol. DO NOT MISTAKE what the message is. It is a message of domination to fly a flag over another.International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace.Think about that.Had it ONLY been the Mexican flag on that pole, or if there were two poles and two flags at equal height, the vet would have been completely wrong in desecrating the Mexican flag. But the way this was flown, if you speak flag, was a provocative statement. Being provocative, the vet response was understandable.Still, one must ask, was the store owner questioned about this before just hacking away and tossing the Mexican flag on the ground? That isn't right either. Address it with words. If he refused to act, then I could see harsh measures. There wasn't much to go on in the video. After the incident the store owner said on the phone that he didn't know. If that is true, the vet kinda went nuts. On the other hand, if there had been words prior, "hey you need to fly them equal height" and the store owner gave the finger, I could understand the vet's actions.If the store owner lied to those reporters and was told to remove or fly it the right way, and refused, it would be extremely ballsy. Who among you would have the guts to try this in any other nation in the world? Would you try to fly the USA flag above a native country's? Hmm? Now consider the bravado and attitude it would take to do that.Now consider what we saw on the video. Which scenario is more believable, the extremely aloof on camera owner accidentally flew the flag wrong, or the extremely aloof on camera store owner was secretly of the bravado it would take to refuse a request to fly it properly? Unless my eyes deceive, I think the extremely aloof store owner didn't know, because he was shocked and submissive at the assault on his flag. He didn't confront. So it seems the vet probably went nuts without giving this store owner a chance. I'm a vet myself, so I don't like what it appears happened. A vet bullied a foreigner for a simple mistake. This is America. We have people from many many nations. We have to live together, no reason to alienate unnecessarily. I think a simple conversation would have fixed this issue.If there is any information condemning the shop owner, I might change my mind, but I think given what we see and know, the vet just took it too far.
