    Ohio dad gets jail for mocking girl with cerebral palsy | Fox News

    Let me preface this by saying that that man was being a total ass wipe. But I don't want the government thinking it's their right to throw people in jail for exercising their first amendment rights. That's every bit as despicable as what that ass wipe did.

    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?


    Wow.
