However, these so-called protests have spiraled out of control and peaceful protests are a thing of the past. In past protest, people have made signs and have marched, in today 's situation people are burning the American flag. It should be illegal, right? The sad news is that it is one hundred percent legal. It should be illegal to burn the flag because it is a symbol of America and freedom, it is disrespectful, and it is an important part in history.
This travel ban he has made to stop “terrorists” is unconstitutional because it allows Christians to flow freely in the travel ban countries. This shows that Donald Trump does not care about anyone but his own race and religion. It also stops citizens from traveling back to the U.S. People who were approved for Visas cannot come either. Some people may say that the ban stops terrorists from coming here, but the terror attacks in the U.S. decreased 39% since 9/11 even without the travel ban.
Given the symbolic nature of the flag we have means to assume this, though we don’t take into consideration other options like a southern heritage. Numerous citizens would say the flag is disrespectful towards the American flag due to the same design elements it possesses. Media attention has shown the flag is being used recklessly, forgetting those individuals it taunts and hurts. For example,
Although there are some people that still have that slave mentality and refuse to treat people of color with the same respect. Therefore, probable cause shows that refusing to stand for the National Anthem is appropriate and justified because of the First Amendment an individual will stand for what he feels is right or fall for
“I stated that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are ‘among the most unspeakable crimes in history.’ I took no position on just where they stand on the scale of horrors relative to Auschwitz, the bombing of Chungking, Lidice, and so on”(Noam Chomsky). In this quote, Chomsky is recognizing the true evil of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by American forces. For many reasons the dropping of the two atomic bombs were an atrocity rather than a retaliation.
It is known that during the Jim Crow era where whites were to be respected and blacks were to be put down as lesser people, relationships between the two races would be extremely dangerous for both sides. However, this way of structure for the society was absolutely false as it had completely gone against what the amendments had put in place for citizens of the United States of America. For example, the 14th amendment states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” This clearly shows that every living person on the planet earth is to be treated equally with just laws that restrict them in no way.
Kaepernick believes that the flag does not represent that for his people. Kaepernick states the reason why he is so willing to sit is because of all the police brutality throughout the Caucasian, Hispanic, and African American community. Kaepernick said “I am not going to stand up and show pride for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.
It would be unjust to pick and choose when our rights, specifically Freedom of Religion, can be exercised. Despite the fact that Muslims were responsible for the events of September 11th, limits should not be placed on all other Muslims just because a group of them did a bad thing. Slavery was a bad thing, should all white people today be held accountable for it? The Holocaust was a bad thing, should anyone with Nazi German Ancestry be held responsible? And so, the main point former Mayor Michael Bloomberg intended to make is that the harmful actions of a few should not be justification for the oppression of the
Perry court case. Thomas Van Orden sued Texas saying that having the Ten Commandments by the state capitol building is unconstitutional because it shows the government endorsing one religion. He argued that this violated the First Amendment’s establishment clause that prohibits the government from establishing one religion. The District Court and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Van Orden because the statute didn’t have a specific purpose except just being a statute and that the government didn’t endorse the Christian
EPA is an agency that sits regulations to stop anyone from causing any damage to the environment, and can punish those who oversee their regulations, it was created by a law from the American congress, and it gave it the power to sit regulations and to punish by them, and these regulations are considered federal laws, so any breaking of the EPA regulations is considered a federal offence, one important thing that the EPA is trying to stop is the burning down of forests wither it is intentionally or unintentionally, but sadly it is not possible because the big fire can start from a very small fire, Almost 2 million acres of land — an area nearly the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined — are currently aflame, according to the September 14 daily report by the National Interagency Fire Center, especially because fire increase pollution and trees decrease it so by burning forests, there will be an increase in pollution and a decrease in the cleaning by the
Dissenting opinion for Johnson Is there any sort of consequences to someone if they burn the American Flag? In the U.S Supreme Court case “Texas v. Johnson”, Johnson was jailed by the start of Texas due to the desecration of the American Flag. The U.S. Supreme Court accepted his case, and the majority opinion of the case decided it was not a criminal offence to burn a flag because of the First Amendment. We the dissenting opinion believe that the burning of the American Flag should be a criminal offence.
To begin, in all jurisdictions there is a high expectation to ensure that human life is protected. Unfortunately, this was not carried out in the Trial of Border Guards as border guard H broke the German Democratic Republic constitution when deciding to shoot and kill Chris Gueffroy in order to prevent him from crossing the border of the German Democratic Republic (Adams #). For this reason, I would uphold the Berlin State Courts (BSC) decision to hold guard H guilty because it was an unlawful act that resulted in not only the violation of Chris Gueffroy’s rights, but also a breach in core law; thus, guard H acted immorally as he should have had the experience and intelligence to know that his actions were unjust. As a result, this case involves
U.S. should have never crossed when Mexico didn’t give permission. Slave owners brought slaves even though it was a Slave-free land. No,United States was not justified in going to war because of all the laws orders they have deceived of Mexico amd Mexico cant’t make that decision whether or not they want to go to war or not. This War is important because without our freedom we would have still been part of Mexico and our country wouldn’t have expanded for further
During times of conflict, the American government often sets limitations on civil liberties. For example, President Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus during the Civil War. Recently, after the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, the government has been attempting to strengthen its control on the growing terrorism threat by increasing surveillance on the American people. Some people do not see this increase in security as a violation of their civil liberties.
