Cesar Zakahi of Fort Pierre, South Dakota was a custodian in the Stanley County School District. And he says he's repeatedly seen a female coworker store the school's American flag by CRUMPLING IT UP and tossing it in the boiler room.
So he took some photos and posted them to Facebook over the weekend. And on Monday, he was promptly FIRED.
Cesar is an Air Force veteran. He says he hated seeing the flag disrespected, but when he complained to the higher-ups, they ignored him. So finally, he decided the only way to get any attention for the problem was to post the photos on Facebook. In South Dakota, defiling the flag is a misdemeanor. You can get up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
On his Facebook page, Cesar says, quote, "I was born and raised in South Dakota, I am a disabled vet, [and] I would do this again even though it cost my job to stop the disrespect of the flag."
