Newsday reports, "A 52-year-old Lindenhurst resident annoyed his neighbors by hanging a Nazi swastika flag from the chimney of his house - until his mother made him take it down." Greggs had initially refused, but the media attention prompted Richard Greggs' 75-year-old mother to ask him to remove it. She noted he had done nothing illegal, "He's just into everything with World War II. He has no affiliation with [the Nazi Party]."
