    Calling for murder of Federal Officials is well, like pointing the gun at yourself... which in hindsight probably would have saved us money.

    From reading the background on this doofus, he's been yowling about "Go kill 'em!" for years. He hates everybody, seems like, since everything bad in the world is somebody's fault. (Not his fault, of course.) He yapped about using unmanned drones on Obama's inauguration, among other idiocies.

    Any correlation between this guy's cerebral processes and rational thought is purely coincidental--and infrequent.

    So the guy is going to jail or is he going away with a slap on his wrist?

    His "show" is on the web. No ratings. Ergo, he gets the book.

    I'm sure we'll hear the Constitutional "freedom of speech" and expression hauled out . . . without acknowledgement that those freedoms are not absolute.

    He will see prison time.

    You don't do what he did and get away with it

    He said "they deserved to be killed". I don't take that as a direct threat, the guy seems like a retard anyways though.

    If I told someone "they deserved to be ran over by a bus", I don't think it would be the same as "I am going to run you over with a bus".

    That's going a little further than just saying they should be killed. That's just shy of hiring your own sniper. That's encouraging some other nutcase to go out and do it for you. I believe Dr. Tiller knows how that works.

    Agreed. However I can see this being considered as legitimate threat nowadays...

    The banner on his Turner Radio Network site includes this logo: “Free Speech: No Matter who Doesn’t Like It!”

    Well, let's see how the Feds take that :D

    Lock him up and throw away the key. It's totally unacceptable to advocate killing judges.

    See, it's generally unacceptable to kill people period. Thus, saying it is unacceptable to kill judges is redundant and implies there is a group that is acceptable to kill.

    I then mentioned lawyers because lawyers are tangentially related to judges and have a certain stigma associated with them.

    I suppose it was funnier in my head. :eek:
