    I think flag burners are idiots. That said, still their right.
    Exactly, idiotic way to demonstrate ones civil liberty, nevertheless..............

    "First Amendment rights don't seem to work for the Right, while the various disaffected hate groups on the Left have been very successful at using the First Amendment to transform America into the disaster that it is today. Perhaps more stringent measures are required. Nobody actually got hurt, did they?

    That is an opinion most pseudo-liberals obviously hold. As a true liberal, I could not disagree with it more strongly.

    If I should ever feel the need for your wikilaw instruction on the meaning of the First Amendment, I will let you know.

    Btw, the symbolism of burning the American flag isn't a declaration of hatred of America.
    I believe it is exactly that. Next you'll be trying to tell us that the members of a Nazi group are not declaring their hatred of Jews by wiping their muddy shoes on an image of the Star of David.

    People always use "America" too broadly. For all we know, those folks love all manor of Americana, but simply oppose armed police officers due to the high numbers of unlawful killings by them.
    I have another explanation, the obvious one--they are disloyal bastards who live in this country and take advantage of it, even while they continually run it down and carry water for its enemies.

    I don't like US flag burning, have never burned one, and I don't want to disarm our police, but I see no problem with these people or their demonstration.
    I am sure everyone who has read your many other posts knows how much you like this country. And I am sure they will take your noble defense of the freedom of speech for all it is worth.

    A citizen is not disloyal when demonstrating against what they feel to be wrong with a Govt policy. The Vietnam War was one that I can refer to. Iraq War 2 another.
    Flag burners as many on the so called left have stated are idiots, but they are not breaking any laws.
    If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.

    Eh. Quite frankly, I think there are quite a few people in this country who could benefit having some sense and common courtesy forcibly knocked into them.

    One of the primary downsides of "civilization" has always been its tendency to coddle preening morons and allow their destructive and disruptive antics free expression. To paraphrase a famous quote here, "every move society has made to limit the power of physically strong psychopaths has simply made it that much easier for cunning psychopaths to seize power instead."

    Every once in a while, a solid punch in the face is really the only response a certain situation calls for.

    I would swear out a warrant on each of them and file a civil suit as well. In court we would find out who the real pussies are.

    And protesting police brutality is saying that the police should do their jobs properly, not that police should disappear. The only way these protesters would be hypocrites is if after the bikers were in hand cuffs or detained, the protesters suggested they should be mistreated, artificially set up to appear guilty, tased, shot, sodomized with inanimate objects, .... I don't think they did that. People protest abuses by police, not the concept of police over all.

    You folks are just so black and white in your thinking... police can do no wrong, and anyone who wants the police to obey the laws and honorable conduct somehow want the police to disappear and do nothing.

    Such childish perspectives.
    What great irony!

    Re: Flag burners get attacked by bikers

    I am surprised at the posts on here. Some of them I want to disagree with and can't. This whole situation is like stupid collides with stupid. Nether side is actually thinking. Drama meets drama. I have a hard time relating to either side in this one. I think that is a good thing.
    I voted Trump. Thanks Wikileaks.
