I am interested to know if its cool to burn a US flag in park without getting arrested for SOCIAL EXPERIEMRNT!
But in this experiment I will burn other flags too such as Jewish, Mexicos, Arab etc...

I read somewhere its allowed by Supreme Court?

I've been thinking about doing a social experiment with a baseball bat. Maybe we can team up.

Burning a US flag is a good way to experiment how many lumps you can take.

OP: to answer your question (although I find it a rather disturbing question), yes, burning the flag is protected speech under the 1st Amendment. Still, you could possibly run afoul of city/state fire code depending on where/how you burn the flag. In any event, burning the flag definitely isn't something that I recommend or encourage.

Do that social experiment on Campus! or in the middle of times square! You just might get beat up playing with flag burning.

Don't guy into a Jewish hood with that nonsense as the Jewish People will get at you. The same as the other flags mentioned, its just not cool.

My point is bringing awarness that burnig any flag is disrespctful.. i would burn differnet countries not only US.. UK, Arab ,Mexicos etc

Its like people dont see a peoblem burning a US Flag.. brining awarness by burnin others.

Maybe a bad analogy but you wouldnt speak out against sexual assault by doing it, theres no way your going to get any positive outcome with this "experiment". Please come up with a different idea

I think you can pull it off if you have a mini grill in the grill only section of the park

It's legal.


Won't get a round of applause from me, though.
