Saintsfan Posted July 8, 2004 Share Posted July 8, 2004 This isn't a question of interpretationThe law is all about interpretation. Which is why judges and law enforcement officers have discretion.So you think placing the flag over a pig is not defacing it?Its not defacing the flag because no part of the face of the flag is obscured. If anything, and I apologise my glibness here, its the pig that is being defaced. My reading of the code (and to an extent this is interpretation, given that I don't know for certain at this point) is that the code refers specifically to a flag in its literal sense- the piece of cloth, and how to care for it and use it. And some parts of the law are not about interpretation. There are legal absolutes and often laws and codes for that matter, can be read as is. And this section is one of those times!
