It's OK to stomp on Old Glory, burn cars, smash windows, throw piss bombs and attack people with bike locks,
but if you burn a fag flag you're going to do time...

It's free speech to burn the American flag because you hate it, but qualifies for 15 years in prison if you burn a LBGTQ flag? Either both are free speech, or neither are free speech.

I would challenge that ruling. That makes the precedence having a barbaque is Arson. It's sloppy for something that should have been a civil penalty.

Any gay beatings that occur I will remember this and point and laugh

Even the LGBTQ crowd thinks the sentence is nuts.

So I'm guessing that this minor fracas is a misdemeanor in Story County.
