    Curt James Brockway might either be guilty of a crime or may be mentally disturbed and need to go to an institution to be committed. If he is beating up a young boy for not observing the national anthem, he is clearly a danger to society. He has a criminal history already and can't own a gun for it. If he's not sane enough or too violent to even own a gun, he needs to be put away one way or another.

    Observing the national anthem is not a law in this country unless one is in military service. Under the First Amendment, Americans have the blessing of Our Founding Fathers for freedom of expression. It is therefore un-American to rebuke one's Bill of Rights liberties by force and it is also a crime to commit battery, assault/battery.

    Sure, you have the right to verbally admonish, scold or shame somebody for not respecting the flag or the anthem, but aggravated assault is going to extremes.

    That President Trump would want to jail flag-burners or deport them is a bit extreme. Burning a flag in public without permission from authorities might constitute a health, litter or environmental hazard that one might be justifiably cited or fined for.

    Sounds like it could be a LITTLE more to it than you mention, just from reading the article. Could be maybe it is the result of a society raising children to believe they are supreme beings who can say and do what ever they want to anyone they meet with out ever facing any significant consequences of any kind.

    Sounds like MAYBE he finally cracked off to the wrong/right guy.

    The number of sides to any story is equal to the number of people telling it ~ BigNastyCowboy
    Here's another point of view:

    Perhaps the kid has been taught to use the rights the Constitution grants him. The man expressed his thoughts and the kid expressed his.

    Fair enough. It's over and done. Both have exercised their Constitutionally protected rights.

    In other news, a grown man injured a child. That's against the law.
