The My Little Pony Killer: doubled99: Nice to see everyone has no problem with free speech being rewarded with a violent assault.

Threats are not protected speech. And freedom of speech is not equal to freedom from the consequences of your speech, especially when you choose to be a hateful bigot as loudly as you possibly can.

/she should have beaten him harder


No, she should not have. She was justified in beating him until he retreated and ceased his threats, and no more. She was, however, Constitutionally correct in doing that, as the courts have ruled.

The head-cutting-off-and-stuffing-down-throat thing pretty much invalidates that argument.
But then, you knew that.


Canes and stones can break your bones, but words will never hurt you.
But then, you knew that already.


"Fighting words". If I am waiting at a bus bench with a black man, and he calmly opines that "honkeys" are the curse of humanity, and that we should all DIAF, I have no beef with that. If he advances on me, fists doubled, screaming that he is going to "rip my head off and shove it down my throat!", he has given me legal grounds to commence defending myself, as many courts have ruled, and will continue to rule.
You appear to have strong opinions regarding what you think the Constitution says. Are you an "area man"?

fireclown: BSABSVR: Freedom of speech does not equal freedom from consequences.


S'right.


There is a difference between armed agent of the state and "black lady with cane". Sorry you are too stupid to process that fact. Life must be very loud and confusing to you most days.

Freedom of speech does not equal freedom from consequences. I can legally call my boss a farktarded asshole. I shouldn't expect to be employed afterwards, however.

Officer Crumpton wrote in the report. "He stated he did not care and he was proud to be a 'white cracker.'"

but bystanders said the suspect told her he was going to cut off her head and stick it down her throat. In response, the woman started beating the man in the face with her cane, cutting his lip bad enough to require stitches, according to the report.

Awesome.

Officer Crumpton wrote in the report. "He stated he did not care and he was proud to be a 'white cracker.'"

And he deserved every whack.
