One article here.

Being an American means standing up for your country and your flag. One man had enough of the disrespect being shown to the American Flag when he broke up a flag burning protest.

The new American Era has begun and American’s are taking back their country back.

On Thursday FedEx driver Matt Uhrin rushed in and broke up a flag burning protest in Iowa City, Iowa. Matt stopped his truck and ripped the flags from the protesters so they could not burn them in protest.

The incident turned Matt into an internet sensation.




Here's my stance. People have the right to burn the flag. I think they are idiots but the Constitution protects idiots. Did the driver infringe on the idiots rights to burn the flag?

Yes.

Should he be punished?

Hmm.

I say yes, as much as I agree with him. I might have done the same thing however, and just accepted the consequences.


Someone convince me differently.

I get that they have a right to freedom of expression; but, wouldn't that mean so does the Fedex driver, and maybe stopping them from burning something he cares about would be considered his freedom of expression.

I don't like flag burners. You have the right but if your going to be so upset at your Country then go catch a bus outta here. Protest against the issues you have in this country not the country that allows you the right in the first place.

I don't think rights can trump rights.

Eve if we disagree with one and agree with the other.

I think flag burners are scum and are cowards.

But even scum and cowards have rights.

It's pointless. What are you accomplishing exactly?
What are you doing to right the wrong your upset about?

Thanks to the mass hysteria from this election I now carry a loaded fire extinguisher in my truck to accompany the Sig on my hip.
Like the old saying goes always be prepared...
