The flag burning case

Valerie Morse has won her appeal against her conviction relating to her burning of the flag on ANZAC Day.

Her appeal was upheld because the lower courts failed to take into account that her actions would not have a tendency to disrupt public order. ?The Veterans, and others, attending ANZAC Day Services failed to respond to her actions in a disorderly manner and therefore the Supreme Court has determined that her actions cannot be offensive.

There’s a lesson here. ?The next time she does it, the crowds need to erupt into disorder, thus ensuring her actions meet the ingredients of the charge, thus ensuring a conviction.
