Slain soldier's dad burns NJ flag to protest Houston tribute

A western Michigan man whose son was killed while serving in the military has burned a replica of New Jersey's flag to protest that state's decision to lower it in honor of performer Whitney Houston.

John Burri set the flag on fire Saturday on a grill outside his home in Wyoming, near Grand Rapids.

"It was $12.95 and it was the best money I ever spent," Burri told The Detroit News.

The 60-year-old Burri says lowering flags should be done for men and women who have given their lives in service to the United States.

only time the flag should be lowered is for our guys who are getting their ass' blown off in these illegal wars. ONLY!!!

I wouldn't lower it for nobody else, including any and all of the Corporate Political ass clowns currently in office. They do not deserve any respect and I say just stick a ham bone up their ass and let the dogs drag 'em off
