If i burn the american flag is that illegal?
i burned a american flag and threw it in the street is that illegal?
Nope....but that 'a**whuppin' that you'd take right afterwards probably would be......
Unfortunatly no. But if someone were to do that, the police wouldnt have to worry about if it were illegal. I would hope a citizen would step up and beat the living crap out of anyone that is doing that. .
Burning the flag is a constitutionally protected expression of protest against the government but you may be violating local laws and regulations, as well as state and federal laws and regulations, against burning things.
It's not illegal, but it's flat out stupid and disrespectful.
You would definitely get your @ss kicked if anyone saw you.
No, but why would you want to burn the American Flag? Just go to the white house and shoot the source...
well u should move to mexico then we will see u sneaking over the border in due time
Although the littering may be illegal (and only lightly punished), burning the flag per se isn't. The country you are trashing protects the right of people like you to trash it.
It depends on the context. Traditionally, burning an old flag is the proper means of disposing of it, so that it cant end up being used as a rag.
However, if you are burning it in protest, you may end up with public nuisance/disturbing the peace. And depending on the policeman that arrests you, you might be taking the 'scenic route' to the police station.
Having said that though, burning anything is most likely in violation of local burning laws.
Next time you want to burn the flag, wrap yourself in it first then set it on fire.
it should be
It is your right to do so. Hopefully it will be stuffed down your shorts when you decide to lite it. I would gladdly help with the gasoline and matches if you can't figure them out for yourself. You also have the right to leave America and go crawl back under whatever rock of a country you are from. I'll buy you a gallon of gas but a plane ticket... you are on your own.
illegal and disrespectful!
I believe the only way a flag can be burnt is torn.
