Protesters Burn American Flags in St. Louis, Mo in 2016

These days we see in the Press Protestin’ Students, Rioters,  Unhappy Legal Immigrants, Illegal Immigrants, Radical Organizations, etc, BURNIN’ or WALKIN’ (or worse) on OUR FLAG! I want to know why these Idiots are not PROSECUTED according to the Law?
See/Look-Up/Read: Title 18 of the United States Code, entitled ‘Crimes and Criminal Procedure; U.S. Code Part I – CRIMES; U.S. Code Chapter 33 – EMBLEMS, INSIGNIA, AND NAMES; U.S. Code § 700 – Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties; (a) (1) Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both…….. I wasn’t a good HISTORY student – but look it up!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

One thought on ““shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both”.

  1. Yes. It’s a disgrace. And most of it is being done by those that call themselves ‘educated’. When my husband and our family go to the cemetery on Memorial Day tattered flags are replaced, and a proper ceremony is given to them. As the very symbol of our loved ones (husband included) who went GI for their country, it’s the very least we can do to RESPECT THEM. I’m so thankful our kids are raised understanding the sacrifice behind the red, white and blue!
