Students Shackled for Flag Burning

Three students, one a U.S. citizen, the other Europeans, where arrested for burning the American Flag. They appeared in court and bail was set at $15,000.

Weather or not you agrea with flag burning, these people are not violent criminals, and thus do not need leg shackles. These people where charged with many crimes, such as reckless endargment, and criminal mischief. Arson was part of the charges. Their bond has been set at $15,000. Then in a local case, two teens are charged with arson (one burned down a house, the other a bridge), and are released into their parents custody. One more reason the justice system should just be called the criminal system.

    The college students are “adults” and were treated like any other person charged with a crime would be. The “teens” were treated like any other minor would be.

    Since when do non violent criminals (how many times has flag burning killed some one because a larger fire ensued) get shackled in court? It just seems a little bit off over kill.
