AIM Supporter Charged With Desecrating American Flag
Joshua Brubaker of Blair County, Pennsylvania has been cited for displaying an upside down American Flag spray-painted with “AIM” across it for what he says was expressing his American Indian heritage beliefs.

Wasn’t there a court case a while ago establishing that you can’t actually make desecrating the flag illegal, because that’s the entire fucking point of freedom of speech?

That’s just what I was thinking.  But then you get a cop with a power complex who will write a ticket for whatever he wants to.
