    'One less pig: perfect justice': Thug who wore t-shirt with vile slogan just hours after murders of two policewomen is jailed for eight months | Mail Online

    8 months in prison for hurting people's feelings. Say what you want about the US being a police state, but we're not as far down the road as some.

    Responsibility and obligation. They go along with free speech.

    I'll agree with responsibility, not so much obligation.

    I do not believe he should have gone to jail, but I do think someone should have beaten the crap out of him.

    Well I don't endorse assault, but I wouldn't get upset about it either.

    He shouldn't have been arrested in the first place, let alone even charged with a crime; as abhorrent as his 'statement' was.

    I mean, Che Guevera was a terrorist who killed hundreds of innocent people, yet you can buy a t-shirt bearing his face on Amazon.

    And, perhaps, a related story-

    Disagree with the Left, lose your job:

    [You see, as a Liberal state, Maryland legislators passed a law to redefine marriage...of course, to allow same-sex marriage. People of Maryland claimed that this was too important to leave up to the legislators and demanded that it be placed on a ballot....
    ...Dr. McCaskill had the unmitigated gall to sign the petition! ....She must have thought that Americans still had that right! ]
    Gallaudet official suspended for signing anti-same-sex marriage petition - Baltimore Sun
