Man's flag orientation creates controversy

A Racine man says he is a libertarian upset about politicians in both parties, broken promises and rising taxes.

Many neighbors are calling the silent protest of Dennis Montey unpatriotic or unAmerican. He is flying the American flag upside down in front of his house.

Montey says this is a case of freedom of speech, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Flying the flag upside is a universal signal of distress.

Montey says he has always flown a flag in front of his house in Racine, but this is the first time he has flown it upside down.
