The Supreme Court recognized that burning an American flag as an exercise of what freedom?

The Supreme Court decided flag desecration involved "expressive" political speech, which they declared an important component of free speech protected by the First Amendment.For more information about Supreme Court decisions on flag burning, see Related Links, below.


Does Flag Burning Violate the First Amendment?

When was the US Capitol destroyed?

By the British in 1814, during the war of 1812, in retaliation for the American burning of York (Toronto). The partially completed building was set on fire.


Why has the Supreme Court repeatedly ruled that flag burning is a protected form of political protest?

Government is not allowed to prohibit the action or expression of an idea [protected by the First Amendment] simply because the public or society finds it offensive. Flag burning to this day is an ongoing argument. There have been two cases: United States v. Eichman & Texas v. Johnson. Both cases were overturned. Certain "interest groups" and various government officials still fight to prohibit flag burning.


A decision of the us supreme court can be overturned by?

A later decision, or refinement ruling of the same court; or a ruling of that same court based upon a new or amended law to comply with that ruling. For example: John burns the US Flag on the steps of the State Capital. The State arrests him because the state amended its constitution based on a previous decision by the US Supreme court that flag burning is protected speech, thereby making flag burning unlawful. The US Supreme court would rule that the amendment violates the US Constitution (which is superior) and strike down the state amendment. The State then writes a law that John has to buy a permit to burn the flag in any form of protest. The US Supreme Court would uphold that law as long as it did not: 1) discriminate in who the permits were issued to, or 2) make the cost or time involved in issuance of the permit unbearable (too much to afford). **Please note this is just a simple example and involves a lot more than is illustrated. FOR PLATO - an amendment to the constitution
