Again the deal here is intent. It seems clear that this was a joke with no ill intentions. OVERKILL

Freedom of speech has never included anything that could or would incite panic. Yell "fire" in a crowded building and the same thing will happen. If caught you'll end up in jail.
With that said, if I were a judge I would drop the charges BUT make the man spend 21 days in isolation for observation just to be sure he was joking. That might teach him the right way to tell a joke.

Well those guys are not black guys in a casino. They are just businessmen much like the media. They can't be held accountable, only powerless individuals are ever held accountable. It's the American way.
So should I report all the happy little white kids I teach? They joke about it every day. Almost alll of them do.
