It’s like District Attorney Kari Brandenburg is purposely flaunting all of the reminders of why she should not be re-elected to another term in office (subscription):
The prosecution and defense squared off in Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court on Tuesday in the case of a University of New Mexico student who ripped down a Mexican flag in September.
Student Peter Lynch has said he did so because it was flying at the administration building unaccompanied by the U.S. flag, a breach of flag protocol.
The incident sparked a firestorm last fall, with supporters of the student asserting that his actions were proper given the violation of flag etiquette. Others accused him of being racist.
Among those in the gallery were camera crews from four television news stations.
Lynch is charged with a count of criminal damage to property. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.
If you need a reminder of what the real issue is here, go back and look at this original post about the U.S. flag code. This is the second time it has come to light that D.A. Brandenburg is prosecuting veterans to the fullest extent of the law for protecting their rights and standing up for the laws of the land. Is she on a vendetta against our veterans?
Of course, when it comes to her judicial cronies, D.A. Brandenburg is only too happy to look the other way. There is something seriously wrong here. A change has to be made.
