A sheriff has refused to fly the U.S. flag at half-mast today in honor of Nelson Mandela because the late South African leader is 'not an American'.
Rick Clark, the sheriff in Pickens County, South Carolina, posted a message on Friday saying that he would ignore President Obama's executive order intended as a mark of respect to Mandela, a leader regarded globally as an inspiration for leading South Africa out of apartheid.
Sheriff Clark's Facebook message appears to have since been removed, but it read: 'Nelson Mandela did great things for his country and was a brave man but he was not an AMERICAN!!!'
