Enjoy your new life, pal.
Probation????? He cut down the flags of our country and he only got probation??
And how much will $500 fine help replace all the flags he cut down?

$500 must be the pre-fine?
How about good flogging instead?

According to the article:
Pham was ordered to pay $100 in restitution to the Holiday Inn Express at 3808 University Drive for cutting down the business' U.S. flag.
Pham was arrested while cutting down the flag with scissors at 11 a.m. on Monday. Police said he also cut down flags from Burger King on Memorial Parkway at University Drive, The Academy for Academics and Arts on Poplar Avenue, and that charges of criminal mischief for those incidents are likely to follow.
"I'm guilty, God bless America," Pham said.Same ghostwriter as Zeroama.
Which means he was born in 1968 or 1969.

Saigon fell on 30 April 1975.
