Judge jails teen for being rude in court

Recently, I have received several inquiries privately regarding the symbolism of the fringe displayed on indoor U.S. Flags, especially in courtrooms. I received the following data sheet from the Flag Research Center regarding this question and I quote it here in its entirety: FRINGE ON THE UNITED STATES FLAG? For many years rumors have been spread through the United States concerning the origin and meaning of the gold fringe which frequently decorates the Stars and Stripes. It has been claimed that such fringe is without proper authorization; that it is symbolic of the end of the gold standard as the basis for United States currency; or that it indicates the substitution of admiralty courts and martial law for common law courts and procedures, as part of a conspiracy supposedly instigated by Communists, Jews, Masons, liberals, feminists, homosexuals, or other "un-American " groups. The Flag Research Center has not conducted a thorough investigation of all the claims being made about fringe, many of which are spread by radio talk programs, cassette tapes, lectures and other non-written forms. Nevertheless its unique resources allow the Center to state the following with certainty: Available evidence seems to suggest that the claims made about fringe on the United States flag are intended to promote the political ends -- including elimination of income taxes, re-establishment of the gold standard, and denial of legal rights to women, non-Christians, and non-Caucasians -- of those who spread those rumors. From the standpoint of history and law, fringe on a flag has no symbolism. While each individual is free to interpret the meaning of fringe, it has no inherent or established universal symbolism. While fringe is frequently used on military flags and in formal settings (parades, public meetings, offices of government officials, courts, inaugurations, dedication ceremonies, etc.), it is also widely used in the private sector. Examples of private usage of fringe on flags in the United States extend back for 200 years. Fringe is and always has been a purely decorative addition -- an optional enhancement of the beauty of a flag, added on a discretionary basis when the flag is purchased. In the private sector and for non-military government uses, use of fringe is like the choice of polyester or nylon over cotton or wool for the flag itself -- simply a matter of enhancing the appearance of the flag. Title Four of the "United States Code" which defines the Stars and Stripes neither prescribes nor proscribes the use of cords and tassels, heading, sleeve, fringe, and other accessories to the flag. It is universally recognized that the symbolic aspect of the flag is inherent in its colors and symbols, not in the physical characteristics of the flag or the things (like fringe) added to it when it is displayed. Admiralty courts deal only with maritime contracts, collisions at sea, and similar naval questions, not with normal civil and criminal cases. There is no symbol in the United States which indicates an admiralty court. While international treaties require that ships display the national flag, maritime flags never have fringe. Martial law is not mentioned in the United States constitution nor has martial law ever been proclaimed in the United States. The use or non-use of fringe on a United States flag in a court has nothing to do with the jurisdiction of the court or with martial law.

Judge jails teen for being rude in court

I respectfully withdraw from my fight... I will not win because of the "Law Definitions" of gold fringe are not yet recognized. All information that I have wrote in this and other forums are correct and true to nature and when combined together makes this an important issue. This has been looked into (Not Thoroughly!!) by the Flag Research Center. I am not going to waste my time fighting, while losing to a definition. Be aware that what I have wrote in the past IS TRUE and needs to be noticed. (A lot of info... see next post)  (Dec 19, 2006 | post #18)

Judge jails teen for being rude in court

Watch the City Council meeting from 2 weeks ago and watch the meeting tonight. I am upset of seeing unjust sentences from neighborhood people and like stating before... I went to court on my neighbor's behalf about 2 months ago, My neighbor received over $500 in fines from a small patch of grass that was 6 1/2" tall next to the gas meter. He had to Lawyer Up because the building inspector "BOB" recommended 30 days in JAIL to judge Redmond. I went on his behalf because he borrows My lawn mower every 7-10 days and his son cuts his lawn (He's 10 yrs old and cuts my lawn too). Because his son missed a patch of grass? First violation? Because "BOB" and him had words about the threat of a ticket over a small patch of grass, is worth 30 days? Why did my neighbor have to seek council? Why was he facing 30 days? (Good thing he sought council). Being former military that is when I noticed this flag. THEN, All this media!!! Knowing what this flag means + unfair sentences = IMMEDIEATE REMOVAL!!! Judges are sworn to protect the constitution, and for fair trials. This is a direct violation of the oath and a Direct Violation of the constitution...  (Dec 19, 2006 | post #16)

I have no clue who this person is except for the article in the paper. Here is the "LETTER OF THE LAW" as stated in Black's Law Dicitionary (go to the library and see for yourself). This law is BROKEN by Redmond herself: Our Flag is not only a symbol of our states, it represents our constitutional rights. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!!! "IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE" Why dosnt Redmond know this? By federal LAW this is illegal and punishable by a one year prison term.(This is cited reference material... LOOK IT UP YOURSELF) Currently, the Flag of the united States of America is defined as : The American Flag of Peace of the united States of America is described as red, white and blue, with thirteen alternating red and white horizontal stripes, and a blue field (union) with 50 stars, one to represent each of the several States. The Flag is proportional,(1 X 1.9). This proportion is easily determined by measuring the length (fly) and dividing by the measurement of the width (hoist). The length divided by the width should be very nearly 1.9. If the flag is not to the correct 1 X 1.9 proportion, it is not an OFFICIAL TITLE 4 U.S.C. 1, 2 American Flag of Peace of the united States of America. Title 4 U.S.C. 1, 2 and Presidential Executive Order 10834, found in the Federal Register at Vol. 24. No. 166, P.6365 - 6367. Title 4 U.S.C. 3 provides that anything put on the title 4 U.S.C., 1, 2 American Flag such as gold fringe MUTILATES the Flag and carries a one-year prison term. This is confirmed by the authority of title 36 U.S.C. 176 (g). The gold fringe is a fourth color and represents "color of military law" jurisdiction and when placed on the title 4 U.S.C. 1, 2 Flag, mutilates the Flag and SUSPENDS the Constitution.(Refe r to title 18 U.S.C. 242, see Black's Law Dictionary). As provided by title 36 U.S.C. 173 and Army Regulation 840-10, chapter 2-1(b), the Flag of the united States of America is defined and described in title 4 U.S.C. 1, 2. Civilians must use the title 4 U.S.C. 1, 2 Flag (see title 36 U.S.C. 173 and Army Regulation 840-10, chapter 2-7) and when military flags are displayed by Army Regulation 840-10, chapter 2 and title 36 U.S.C. 175.  (Dec 18, 2006 | post #14)

Jailed for jaywalking

This is the most uneducated comment I have ever seen in any thread, EVER! I can't even believe I am debating with someone of this mentality. Once again, with comments like this how can anyone take you seriously?  (Dec 14, 2006 | post #27)

Jailed for jaywalking

I told you I don't care. I care about our flag, country, and our rights. Why do you care to sit here and defend these actions? (You could be be putting your energy into something else) Why is it that you talk about your occupation, but don't reveal it? (I told you I didn't care but, now I am getting curious). I don't see any better use for my energy right now, than this. This is how strongly I believe in this. There is nothing you can say that will ever change how I feel. I will continue to the finish line. ASSUME THAT!  (Dec 14, 2006 | post #26)
