A Cochise County man has been flying the United States flag upside down on his property since the Presidential elections.
Jim Hart said he was very depressed after the elections, and felt that the country was in dire straits. After a lot of thought, he decided to make the bold statement and fly his flag upside down, as a sign of distress.
According to flag etiquette, the flag should never be flown upside down, unless the country is in an emergency, or to signal distress. Hart said he felt that was the case, after President Obama won re-election.
Seeing the flag upside down had many residents who drove by Hart's home very upset.
War Veteran Randy Lamotte, who lived right next door to Hart found it distasteful, and was shocked when he saw the sight.
