Yes, those things are illegal, however there was a cop right there. Not to mention, it is not a crime to burn the flag. Sorry, but the fact is, there
was a cop right there, if anyone is to intervene, even with the hazard of setting something on fire, it is the officer, not Joe Blow the patriot.
It may be his right to hold a rally, and it may be his right to do with the flag as he pleases, but if his actions cause a disturbance or
ENTICE a disturbance he therefore looses his right to what ever activity he is doing...
So if I say that a protest against a murder spree, held on the steps of city hall (with a permit) was disturbing me, I could shut it down? Protests
that go through city streets that cause me to take a detour, I could shut down? He wouldn't have enticed any reaction if he would have been left alone
to exercise his right to burn that flag. If Joe Blow patriot would have been singing "God Bless America" with a flag of his own, and minded his
business, this wouldn't be an issue, now would it?
Obviously his actions caused a problem, and for you to say that he should have pressed charges is laughable, and honestly
A problem for a single person. Of course, I am sure the police officers were liberal lefties too, letting people catch on fire with this possible
"great fire" from a 3"x5" flag. And please be disgusted then, I'm going to walk down the street and start ripping stuff out of people's hands. When
the police come out, I am going to tell them that they disgust me.
The liberal Left feels as if they have this bullet proof shield around them, and all actions that are done on their side are righteous and
cannot be stopped.
Where are we now? Where have we gone to? *looks around*
Just because there is a general statement "freedom of speech" does NOT mean you have the right to do ANYTHING..
Never said it did. You imply that I said that, and you are wrong.
I am glad to see that man stop the ignorant fool who most likely was an illegal immigrant.
Because of what he looks like right? Or because of the fact that he's protesting? What makes him seem like an illegal immigrant to you? Do only
illegal aliens possess the ability to use a lighter?
