Flag burning at LSU

Not sure if any of you guys had heard about this but it made pretty big news here. At 5 am, after obama's speech about osama being killed, the flag in front of the bell tower here at LSU was cut down and burned by an LSU student. He was found a few days later and arrested.

Now today a student organized a flag burning protest where he planned to burn a flag publicly. Here is the story on what happened today and a video after it, some pretty serious shit. Big dumbass if you asked me.

Story of the original asshole to cut the flag down:

Story of the dumbass who tried to burn one today:
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/05/11...american-flag/

Video of said dumbass:

when radix did more than fix grammar and advise quality watches and liquor

What is interesting is back in the 70's the college students were the one burning the flag and protesting against the government and now they are defending the flag and the government. How times have changed.

I like how the police move the guy out and say they are doing it for his safety so not violate his right to be there and say what he wants.

It's a flag.

Quote:
Chapter 1, Title 4, United States Code...

...The full-color U.S. flag cloth replica is worn so that the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.

The rule dates back to the Army's early history, when both mounted cavalry and infantry units would designate a standard bearer, who carried the Colors into battle. As he charged, his forward momentum caused the flag to stream back. Since the Stars and Stripes are mounted with the canton closest to the pole, that section stayed to the right, while the stripes flew to the left.
