    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.
    Perfect analysis.

    Seems to be a majority opinion here that while desecrating the flag is a bit disturbing, it's been declared a constitutional liberty by the SCOTUS, and that the protesters were in fact not hypocritical in their actions, but that indeed the bikers were.

    It would seem as they see it, 'freedom' and the 'Constitution' don't count for other's beside them.

    And pardon me, if I call that 'Bigotry'.
    Well they used to be soldiers too. Pretty much polar opposite of a biker. Lol delayed teenage rebellion.

    The First Amendment guarantees flag-burning against government. It does not guarantee the safety of flag burners from attack by outraged Americans. It's hardly a surprise these shameful specimens ran from a fight.

    Shameful specimens for exercising their civil liberty. Says the advocate of all free speech save that which hurts his feelings.

    That's what local laws on assault, etc are for.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
