Guess What Just Happened To The Idiot Who Thought It Was Cute To Burn the Flag on 4th of July

Social Justice Warrior, Bryton Mellott sparked huge controversy on Facebook this morning when he had the audacity to post several pictures of himself burning the American Flag, just in time for Independence day. 22-year-old Bryton is an employee at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Savoy, Illinois, and has amounted to nothing in his life other than becoming internet famous for what I imagine he feels is “bravery” for standing up for some form of bullsh*t or another.

This sniveling piece of excrement set the flag on fire, had someone take pictures, and then posted them to Facebook with this ABSURD message accompanying them.

“I am not proud to be an American. In this moment, being proud of my country is to ignore the atrocities committed against people of color, people living in poverty, people who identify as women, and against my own queer community on a daily basis.

I would like to one day feel a sense of pride toward my nationality again. But too little progress has been made. Too many people still suffer at the hands of politicians influenced by special interests. Too many people are still being killed and brutalized by a police force plagued with authority complexes and racism.

Too many people are allowed to be slaughtered for the sake of gun manufacturer profits. Too many Americans hold hate in their hearts in the name of their religion, and for fear of others. And that’s only to speak of domestic issues.”

Well thank God that there are still a handful of American patriots left on the planet, because due to the overwhelming calls to police, this a**hole is now behind bars where he can rot for all I care. Mellott has been charged with Section 49-1, flag desecration, a class four felony in Illinois. He’s also been charged with disorderly conduct.

Bryton Mellott ended his idiotic rant with this sentence that I find quite funny now that he’s sitting in jail: “I do not have pride in my country. I am overwhelmingly ashamed, and I will demonstrate my feelings accordingly. ‪#‎ArrestMe‬” Help make this idiot famous, and not for the reason he was going for! Share this everywhere!

If he would have just stuck to giving michael moore blow jobs he wouldn’t be getting passed around in jail

You are right daxx. Although he said he is a member of the “queer community”. That being the case, by throwing him in jail he was done a favor. He will now get to meet a lot of “Peters”. I’m sure getting passed around in jail is something he will much enjoy. Well good for him! I hope he enjoys his stay, I hope it’s a long one.

OMG! Did you really say “Hope he gets a long one!”? Thats laying it down a little “Thick” dont you think? NEXT!

We need to take up a collection to buy skippy, here, a one-way plane ticket to someplace beautiful to live, like Somalia, or Argentina. That way he can be a little twatwaffle somewhere else.

Better yet, send him to Iran or Iraq and he can be a bird and see if he can fly when they throw him off the roof of a building .

Send him to the liberal utopia Cuba they even ran out of toilet paper so he can wipe his ass with his hand in utopia..

Scumbag communist doesn’t deserve to walk upon our soil!!! Brave Warriors who die for this country also use the flag as a burial shroud for honor. This sick basta*d does not deserve any of the Rights and Liberties our men and women have died for!!! Take a hike and don’t stop until your somewhere else other than here!!!

Idiot! Those “Brave Warriors” died exactly for the freedom for this young man to do exactly whatever the hell he wants to something that represents injustices to him.

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” He’s allowed by the law of the constitution and first amendment to burn the flag in protest. We are all welcome to disagree because the brave members of our armed services have protected those rights for us.

And by practicing his right to free speech he committed a felony act. Yes his right to burn the flag. His right to go to jail for it too. Sorry , not sorry! Quoted by said article, “Mellott has been charged with Section 49-1, flag desecration, a class four felony in Illinois. He’s also been charged with disorderly conduct.” I have no idea what the actual punishment is but he will be getting a felony charge which in the end will ban him from voting owning firearm, working with the elderly/children in medical and other facility and many other things.… Read more »

And you are what? Certainly not educated, not very bright, a hard day’s work is more than likely quite foreign too you..Even though you misspelled garbage you used that word in sentence with America…This Veteran request that you take your useless self out of my country…I’d be delighted to help…

the irony of calling someone out on misspelling a word, right after you yourself used “too” instead of “to”…… definitely showing your superior intellect

As an American who loves america.. you are so right

“Flag desecration” isn’t illegal. He’ll walk, if it’s true that he was ever arrested in the first place, which is unlikely.

Terry
Guest

Apparently there is Illinois law concerning flag desecration, however there is question as to the constitutionality of that law. So, indeed, he’ll eventually get away with it, but hopefully, he’ll spend a good chunk of his money on lawyers and not just taxpayer money.

I was actually kind of shocked that law is still on the books after American Flag desecration was deemed by the SCOTUS to be protected speech in 1989.

Nate
Guest

That’s the thing, there can be laws on the books but they can’t be enforced. It would actually be terrible if he WAS arrested. This way, if he was truly arrested for this crime, he can sue for damages, costing the taxpayers money.

Anon E Mous

Toss in the charge of “inciting to riot”. That would stick!

Dave
Guest
No, there is not a question. Flag desecration statutes are plainly unconstitutional. See /Texas v. Johnson/, 491 U.S. 397 (1989). Justice Brennan did a very good job of explaining *why* the First Amendment protects such expression. https://supreme.justia.com/…/federal/us/491/397/case.html Not a year later, /United States v. Eichman/, 496 U.S. 310 (1990) held the same way. http://supreme.justia.com/us/496/310/case.html I think it’s repugnant, and I wouldn’t do it myself, but it’s clearly a protected form of expression under the First Amendment, and the police were wrong to arrest him. I suspect that he’ll walk away with taxpayer dollars in his pocket in settlement of the… Read more »

Hey you little b*tch libtard, the person that wrote this article fought for our freedoms, she’s a female combat vet you bottom feeding liberal piece of sh*t. What have you done to preserve the freedom of your country other than sitting on your p*ssy liberal ass behind a keyboard?

Dave
Guest
If she’s a veteran, then surely she’s uttered these words: “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same….” Who relieved her of her oath to support and defend the Constitution (including its amendments)? As Reaves points out below, burning a flag is not only legal, but prescribed by law as a means of disposal; ergo, such laws–and such petty people–can’t be objecting to the burning itself, but to the sentiment being expressed.… Read more »

Judges rulings aren’t part of the Constitution.

Oh, look: it turns out even the county prosecutor says I’m right and you’re wrong: Champaign County State’s Attorney Julia Rietz said today that the man arrested on July 4 after a flag-burning Facebook post will not be charged. “The State’s Attorney’s Office is declining to file charges against (Bryton) Mellott as the act of burning a flag is protected free speech according to the US Supreme Court decision, Texas v. Johnson, 491 US 397 (1989),” Rietz said in a statement. “We have considered 720 ILCS 5/49-1, Flag Desecration, an Illinois statute currently in effect,” the statement reads. “This statute… Read more »

lmao, just because he isn’t charged dont mean he won’t pay, I mean laws are not working now anyways, so you never know when some pissed off vet might yoke ol gay boy up and pummel him viciously and walk off.

Guest

You may find another vet honoring his/her oath take offense to that type of action on an American citizen.

Reaves
Guest

Exactly. I think it’s idiotic anytime somebody burns a flag. It’s nonsense. But how does it become a felony to burn a flag in your own back yard? I mean, one of the prescribed ways to actually dispose of a flag is by burning. Yet if you don’t burn it in the proper way it’s a felony?

wayne
Guest

ok if that act is protected under the first amendment then me kicking his punk *ss should also be protected under such expression

Mel G.
Guest

There is a question because mainly a court ruling only sets precedent it does not make law, that belongs to congress, court rulings can be overturned and decided differently in each case. Folks you must really differentiate between law and precedent. No offense meant to anyone with my post just stating the facts.

Jack

He may get away with it, BUT he WILL get his *ss beat 🙂

LOL he works for wal mart he has no money

He shouldn’t have burned the flag but he is right about America and many So called American people.

Your poor parents and family!! You have shamed your family, your employer, and yourself. You really do not have a good reason to continue on living. You are a useless being. You bring nothing to this world. You help no one. I as an American and I just don’t see why suicide is the only answer for you. You Mom and Dad and Grandparents would feel better. You hurt them all. ?

Bill Richards

I sent that little “commie” bastard a message telling him how he makes me wanna puke. How thousands of veterans would love to catch him trying to burn the US flag in front of us. If that *sswipe doesn’t like the USA then he should move somewhere he would appreciate it better.

I’m sure your message will make him come to his senses and apologize.
