Ralph Silvestro works as a legal clerk in the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For several months he had an American flag and a pirate's skull-and-crossbones flag taped to his computer. But when Keith Smith took over as director of justice center's Active Criminal Records division, he ordered Silvestro's supervisor to make him take down the flags. He reportedly said the flags were not appropriate for a workplace.
