The owner of the Four Seasons Diner in the Rio Grande section of Middle Township, NJ has been told by the township to remove his American flags which are hung by a string.
The township has an ordinance prohibiting any stringed banners. However, they also say the American flag may be flown or displayed without limitation. The owner, originally from Greece, said he would go to jail for the American flag.
The township is threatening to fine the owner $1000. Despite these threats, the owner said he will not remove the flag.
