Man’s anti-American signs anger neighbors on Memorial Day

 Some people honor Memorial Day by hanging a flag or pausing to reflect on the sacrifices of those who have died for the country. One Sacramento homeowner decided to plaster his home with signs that criticized America and stated "9-11 Is a Lie" and "From Freedom to Fascism."

The man declined to answer questions.

As he headed back into his house after taking pictures of a reporter, he said, "You know, if you believe the Taliban and Al Qaeda is out to get you, then maybe you need to get your Prozac refilled."

One of his neighbors, Evelyn Horn, isn't thrilled by the display.

"We have enough bad things going on in the neighborhood. We're trying to keep the neighborhood clean. That kind of garbage, we don't need it," she said. "I don't like it."
