Texas v. Johnson 1989 Freedom of Speech The reason for the case starts with the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade marching around Dallas, TX during the 1984 National Republican Convention.

When at one of the companies one member took the American flag and handed it to Gregory Lee Johnson who then proceeded to burn the flag. He was then arrested for desecration of property on a 1 year sentence and two-thousand dollar fine. Johnson then appealed to the Fifth Court of Appeals of Texas but lost. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals would then see his case. This was the highest court in Texas that would see Criminal Appeals he then won on a 5-4 majority. The reasoning that the court used for overturning was not the fact of vandalism, but that it’s his freedom of speech.

They decided that it did indeed did cover non-verbal because of cases like Stromberg v. California and Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District. They also decided that it was indeed expressive behavior because he did in front the Republic National Convention with overly expressive and apparent behavior. I…
