Never underestimate the power of a...

...good public shaming...

The man sat pilloried as the village had its fall youth soccer picnic with a long parade of children passing in front of him.

"He'll never disrespect the flag again, I can tell you that," Normile said.

I've always thought shaming was a good way prevent further crimes. Even lefties should like it because no violence was done.

The community took matters into their own hands, without police or social workers having to get involved, plus they offered the guy options, he was the one who made the decision.

Win Win for everybody, including the flag burner.

I heard an older gentleman tell of his youthful experience. He stole something and his punishment was three lashes in the public square. He said the lash didn't hurt that much but the humiliation involved caused him to vow to never steal again.

The event was held, the man was shamed.

Enough.Lesson learned.

Talk of further punishment is just vindictiveness in action.

Now, if further punishment was to write a public apology, or do community outreach, I am all for it.

However, if the punishment includes more shaming, then I would be against that.

no, nonny, you dumbstick... you don't get it, do you?

it's not about a flag, or any other particular offense... it's about violating the social contract.

and that actions should have consequences.
