Clark Co. (ECWd) –
Federal Law: 18 U.S. Code 700 – Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties- (Link to Federal Code)
(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.
What better example to use than prosecuting a teacher who appears to have violated Federal Law in front of students? Will our laws ever have meaning for those students if this teacher is not held accountable?
I would hope that the School Board demand the US Attorney step in and take action against this teacher for his knowingly desecrating the American Flag by trampling upon it in front of young impressionable students.
For those that have the nerve to scream a claim this teacher’s actions are protected under the 1st amendment, I suggest you learn history and the application of law.
This action took place while on the public dime in a class room full of students. This action was not done as a citizen, but as a teacher.
