A video from Tommy DiMassimo published on YouTube in April 29, 2015 shows him dragging the U.S. flag and stepping on it. The YouTube channel also includes a video claimed to have been produced by DiMassimo that portrays a sadistic, fictitious incident involving a black male being tortured.
A number of commenters on DiMassimo’s YouTube channel criticized Dimassimo and sarcastically wished him good luck in prison, or threatened him.
