i'm all for free speech

except when it includes death threats or incites violence, harm or murder. one cannot THREATEN anyone without paying consequences. i'm more than pleased this gatsu piedi was arrested. although i must say i never listened to him. i did just listen to a bunch of stuff on youtube. i'm not going to post any of it though. just type in hal turner at youtube and a ton of stuff will come up. it's NOT pretty. i must add there are a LOT of crank callers out there getting in to him. that makes me smile a bit. he can fume and name call and say evil things all he wants. if you must listen to him, go on ahead. i don't understand it, but i won't stop you. HOWEVER if the threatens someone or asks someone else to cause violence or harm to others, HE MUST BE MADE ACCOUNTABLE.

Radio Host Hal Turner Charged With Inciting Injury To Two Connecticut Lawmakers
|Hartford Courant
Radio host Hal Turner — accused of hosting a website that incited Connecticut Catholics to "take up arms" and singling out two Connecticut lawmakers and a state ethics official — was taken into custody in New Jersey late today after state Capitol police obtained an arrest warrant for him. Turner, who has been identified as a white supremacist and anti-Semite by several anti-racism groups, hosts an Internet radio program with an associated blog. Last week, the blog included a post that promised to release the home addresses of state Rep. Michael Lawlor, state Sen. Andrew McDonald and Thomas Jones of the ethics office. "Mr. Turner's comments are above and beyond the threshold of free speech," Capitol police Chief Michael J. Fallon said in an e-mail announcing the warrant. "He is inciting others through his website to commit acts of violence and has created fear and alarm. He should be held accountable for his conduct.".........
