Letter: Burning American flag ought to be a hate crime

Burning American flag ought to be a hate crime

I’m certainly not qualified to be a Supreme Court judge, but I have to disagree with the jurists in one respect. They say it’s a right to burn the flag as an expression of free speech, but in my opinion I would consider it a hate crime because the flag represents something the burners hate. Why do foreigners do it? Because of what it represents.

My message to the burners would be, get a visa and go to any other country that you think will give you more freedoms than you have in America.
