    A flag desecration charge was dropped Monday for a man who protested a crude oil pipeline that crosses his property by hanging an American flag upside down at his home, online court records show. Homer Martz, 63, was charged Friday under a state law that makes it illegal to defile, cast contempt upon, satirize or deride a flag. That law, however, was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in December 2014 and state prosecutors were told not to enforce it. The law, which lawmakers have not removed from the books, says law enforcement officers have a duty "to enforce the...

    OCEANSIDE, Calif. - Three 18-year-olds were behind bars Tuesday on suspicion of defacing American flags in a North County senior housing neighborhood last summer. Ruben Jimenez, Daniel Moran and Breanna Alexis Serrato allegedly spray-painted the three flags -- writing "(expletive) USA" on one of them -- in the 3800 block of Rosemary Way in Oceanside late on the evening of July 18, according to Lt. Leonard Cosby. A surveillance camera captured images of the crimes, he said.

    Lil' Wayne's video for the song God Bless America features the outspoken star stomping on the American flag, according to footage taken during the video shoot. That's not all Lil' Wayne has to say about his homeland. The song's lyrics are equally blunt in their distaste for the country. "My country, tis of thee / Sweet land of kill them all and let them die / So God bless America, this so Godless America."

    HGTV viewers are expressing outrage after the network suggested they use American flags as table cloths for Fourth of July celebrations, calling offensive, un-American and an insult to the American military. “Using an American flag as a table cloth dishonors all Americans who love Old Glory – especially those who gave their lives defending it,” one viewer wrote. “No one dies for a table cloth.” The HGTV website featured a segment titled, “Classic Fourth of July Table Setting Ideas.”The photographs show bowls of fruit and a jar of lemonade sitting atop Old Glory. They called the flag an “unconventional table”...

    Teacher who stomped on flag receives $85,000 settlement The South Carolina teacher placed on administrative leave after throwing an American flag on the floor and stomping on it was paid $85,000 as part of an out-of-court settlement in a case arising out of that incident. The settlement does not include the salary that Chapin High School English teacher Scott Compton will continue to receive until June 7, according to The State. He continues to get paid although he was placed on leave in January and submitted his resignation on Mar. 27. “Prior to his resignation, attorneys for Mr. Compton informed...

    Lexington-Richland 5 paid former Chapin High teacher Scott Compton √ $85,000 to avoid a legal challenge, part of a settlement that led to his resignation after he stomped on an American flag during a class lesson. The payment is on top of Compton’s salary that will be paid through June 7, even though he has been out of the classroom since December. School officials did not provide Compton’s salary Monday, but their plan pays teachers with his 12 years’ experience $43,340 to $59,647 a year. Lexington-Richland 5 taxpayers also will foot the bill for more than $31,500 in attorney fees,...

    AVARES — The Lake County Democratic Party removed an American flag depicting an image of President Barack Obama at its headquarters this afternoon after several veterans complained. "That's a complete desecration of the American flag," local veteran Donald Van Beck said. The controversial flag had been flying under an American flag on the same flag pole. It has an image of Obama in the blue section where the stars are normally located. A similar flag was available for sale on eBay for $12.95. Today, half a dozen veterans arrived at the party headquarters in Tavares and Van Beck asked party...

    A Democratic fundraising video on President Obama's political Web site shows an American flag mural being covered in graffiti and desecrated with slogans about health care reform. As a heart monitor beeps ominously in the background, a graffiti artist paints over the Stars and Stripes with phrases criticizing opposition to the Democratic legislation, including "profit over life" and the crossed-out words "death panel." The whole flag is eventually smeared with paint and blacked out. One of 20 finalists in the Democratic National Committee's "Health Reform Video Challenge," the video shows the Los Angeles-based graffiti artist "Saber" at work, according to...

    A Cape Girardeau man was arrested for flag desecration Friday, a case that was dismissed within hours because of a 1989 U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared flag burning was protected speech under the First Amendment. Cape Girardeau County Prosecuting Attorney Morley Swingle said that he was unaware of the case, Texas v. Johnson, that invalidated the laws of 48 states, when he filed misdemeanor charges against Frank L. Snider III. Missouri's law was passed in 1980. When asked whether the state law could be enforced, Swingle said he needed to research the issue. After reviewing the court's opinion, he...

    At the great Vocal Minority website, ETR follows up on a story that both he and I have written about in the past few days - namely, the desecration of the American flag by ardent Obama supporters in the name of patriotism.My article, Symbolism Matters, touches upon the decline of importance many Americans place on the symbols this country holds dear. As I see it, it is a situation that is both sad and infuriating. ETR's comments are poignant, direct and spot on. He writes: A couple days ago I posted on a Baltimore Sun article that exposed Obama fans...

    When The One famously said, "I decided I won't wear that pin in on my chest. Instead, I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism," he decided that his kind of patriotism did not involve displaying the American flag on his lapel.His choice.Of course, within days, he had that pesky little bugger back on his jacket. (Political Expedience 101).But that was the traditional, everyday, run-of-the-mill American flag - the kind with 13 red and white stripes and fifty stars. (Ho hum)....
