More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Selective Service Act was instituted in 1948 by the United States, which required all male American citizens to register with their local draft board at the age of 18. Due to the possibility of fraud, it was a crime to alter one’s Selective Service Card, which was required to be kept on one’s person at all times. However, in the face of Vietnam War protests, where many protesters would burn their Selective Service card, the US Congress amended the act, also criminalizing the act of “knowingly” destroying or mutilating the card.
One court case regarding the constitutionality of the amendment, United States v. O’Brien, reached the United States Supreme Court (as the First Circuit Court of Appeals believed that it violated the First Amendment for singling out “persons engaging in protest for special treatment”.) The Supreme Court disagreed, and upheld the constitutionality of the law in 1968.
