I have often wondered how the FLAG POLICE could enforce a law against flag burning. What constitutes a flag? Is clothing with red and white stripes that gets burned considered a flag? What if the stripes are not of uniform width? Would it be flag material? I have a necktie that has red and white stripes with white five pointed stars on a blue background. Would I be arrested for discarding that tie? What if the stars were six pointed or had some other variation from the official flag? I think anyone who really needed to burn the American Flag in protest, would be smart enough to get a variety of materials and make something that would represent the American Flag but would not technically be the flag and thus the arsonist would not really be burning a flag, but the people witnessing it would think it was a flag. Just my thoughts.
