  • Reagan 4 Pres
  • Gregory Johnson didn't like the Republican nominee, so he burned an American flag to show it. So, the case Texas v. Johnson was born. 
  • Constitution
  • Johnson was arrested for destroying a "venerated object."
  • Johnson was sentenced to a year in prison and fined $2,000.
  • Pasta la vista
  • Later, in the appellate courts, Johnson's case was overturned. 
  • The Supreme court said that the government couldn't decide what was too offensive. They said that opinions of opposition to the government were a crucial part of our constitution.
  • The precedent now is that free expression's limits are not in speech. Actions, if non-violent, still fall under the umbrella of the first amendment.
