  • I'm just exercising my 1st amendment, i'm breaking no law!
  • Texas V Johnson
  • Stop, that's against the law!
  • Mr.Johnson, you are brought here today with charges of flag desecration. There were eyewitnesses and there is significant evidence that you did indeed commit this crime. I sentence you to 1 year in the Dallas County Jail and fine you $2,000
  • Criminal Appeals
  • After our brief revision of this case, we reverse the charges that Mr. Johnson was charged with. We will now send this case to the supreme court.
  • Criminal Appeals
  • In a 5-4 vote, the supreme court held that Mr. Johnson's actions were protected under the constitution as "Protected Expression." The state of Texas has no authority to decide what can or can't be protected by the 1st amendment.
  • Supreme Court
  • Now that im free, I can protest without being wrongfully persecuted!
