In both cases, there is no "you cant burn the flag law" that applies.
In the second case, there is "you cannot burn other peoples property" law that does apply.

Logic overcomes emotion. The law states that if it's his own personal property and he burns it, nothing can come of it.

Progressives like "All American NYC" should get that through their thick skull.

No, you just wanted to post a pointless talking point.

Either act will inflame people. One of them put our people overseas in more danger and cost the lives of 20 people at least.

Not exactly a fair comparison, regardless of the law.
