    This is actually covered in the U.S. Flag Code.

    From § 7, paragraph (m) "In the event of the death of other officials or foreign dignitaries, the flag is to be displayed at half-staff according to Presidential instructions or orders, or in accordance with recognized customs or practices not inconsistent with law."

    I don't think Arpaio will get a visit from the secret service for not lowering the flag, but the choice isn't exactly his to make.

    The code does allow for private individuals to see it as just a guideline, and there are no consequences for refusing to do so. Arpaio is an elected official, so it would be prudent for him to comply, his personal opinions aside.

    El Charro did open a different restaurant. It's called "Sir Vezas Taco Garage"...and it's not El Charro quality.
