The Facts:


In 1984 a man name Johnson, participated in a protest near the Repbulican National Convention in Dallas, Texas. At the end of the protest Johnson poured kerosene on an American flag and set it a flame. Several witnesses not participating in the protest were very offended at Johnson's actions. At the time Texas had a statute which made it a crime to desecrate a state or national flag. Johnson was charged under this law. He appealed, arguing that the law was an infringement on his First Amendment right. Such as those expressing political opinions.
