  • The Muad'dib says that it's vandalism.

  • You can't cherry pick the law. Her cause was noble and I totally agree that the Confederate flag should be removed from government buildings, but she broke the law and should pay the penalty.

  • The first amendment protects the right to express yourself however you want, what she did is a crime and she should get no special treatment.

  • Forget the symbol. She tampered with someone else's property, and don't use the excuse "They put me in jail because I'm black". Sorry honey, but the law is the law

  • More like criminal mischief but ok.

  • The law is objective. Whether or not you support the policies of the now-extinct C.S.A. is irrelevant. It is, in fact, vandalism.

  • Whether or not you like the flag is of no consequence. The law is objective.

  • Yes, if this is a crime she should be charged, no matter what the symbol is.
