Milwaukee, WI - On Sunday, an unidentified homeowner or renter continues to display several flags from the U.S. and Mexico on the front lawn (ground) facing S. Layton Blvd. The home is located on the Northwest corner at 663 S. Layton Blvd. in Milwaukee's south side.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) attempted to contact the occupant of the home, but the fence entrances were padlock secured. HNNUSA  could not contact the occupant.
A U.S.A. flag or a foreign country's flag should never touch the ground while being displayed, according to proper flag etiquette procedures and rules. In this particular case, the flags being displayed at the corner home are in violation of the etiquette rules.
Is the owner or occupant trying to convey a particular statement, protest, free speech, patriotism or other intent? Despite the motive, it can be simply portrayed as a violation of flag etiquette to some and to others a flag desecration.
