YES! Fine her! Throw her in jail!
Maybe...it seems disrespectful.
Really? This is what we're talking about?
However, the very idea that carrying a flag horizontally during a parade, or painting a beautiful flag mural on the side of a building, is somehow disrespectful to the flag... is IMHO ridiculous.
The only reason it is even considered to be so by some people (such as yourself), is because in some other persons humble opinion, it is somehow disrespectful. The only difference between that person and myself, is that THEY got to write the code, and I didn't.

I've never seen anyone actually try to fold a flag that large, properly. I would imagine they stuff it into a hug bag or something... which would be somewhat disrespectful I suppose, but I'm not sure how else you'd store something so big.
And it occurs to me, there are different regulations concerning military displays of the flag. Each branch has its own internal flag code. Perhaps they differ from the civilian rules in the flag code with respect to horizontal display?
I'll have to research that.
D'oh, never mind, I figured it out! Look carefully at the picture. The flag is not horizontal, it is, in fact, aloft. It's being held up by poles in the back.
Not really free though. It's supposed to be aloft and free.

But once one is made aware of the violation, one must do everything to correct it, not stubbornly cling to the impermissible behavior.
