Does the Constitution need a new amendment to ban the desecration of the American flag?
I don’t know about any one else, but this should be a crime punishable by death same as if you go out and kill some one in cold blood, PLUS, is it your right under the FIRST amendment to Kill a Bald Eagle just to protest, last I heard it was illegal to kill one any time, why is the Flag any different, it is the Symbol of this Country, it should be respected and not for some one to shit on.
To me that Flag means one thing, FREEDOM that this Country started in the beginning of this Country, and the people who died to keep it free, this also includes the Native Americans, who later were lied to, and to fly without being defaced in any way, other than being replaced when worn out, and when done by the proper people designated by the Government, and not just by any one.
If this Country allows the right to free speech to be used any way they want, then we will be no better than the wars going on in the Foreign countries today over who has control, you want a Civil War here then keep allowing people to do what ever they want, because the laws can never be enforced because of free speech rule.
This Country has to draw the line and stop pampering bleeding hearts when people break the law, and we have to send people to prison for PUNISHMENT, not LUXURY, go back to the chain gangs and make them work at hard labor, then maybe they won’t want to got to Jail or Prison if they knew they were not going to get pampered.
THE LAW IS THE LAW, ENFORCE IT!
