A Canadian man filmed himself tearing down and burning a neighbor’s Nazi flag, saying he took matters into his own hands because “authorities weren’t going to.”
Caleb Pelletier posted a video on Facebook of him setting the red and black swastika flag ablaze, reports CTV Regina.
“I made the decision when the authorities weren’t going to make it,” Pelletier told the news outlet.
“I believe it affected so many of our people so I took matters into my own hands and now they are taken down and burned,” he added.
Kelliher Mayor Darcy King said the 34-year-old man who hung the flag atop his house “never grew up” and was living with his grandfather, according to CTV Regina.
King added that the man had promised he would remove the flag, according to the local news outlet.
It is not currently known if Pelletier will face charges for burning the man’s flags.
