    I don't know what's worse, the fact that this guy did this, or the fact that the government thinks they should infringe on our free speech rights because of it.

    So ridiculing a disabled girl is your idea of free speech??

    It IS free speech, and we all know the difference.

    Do you really think this assholes behavior rises to a jail sentence?
