The Secret Service needs to start locking up these bastards. Make an example. Make several examples and soon. End this bullsh$t right now. I don't care what you think of our President elect, assassination threats are criminal. CEO? What a moron.

Yes, because the first amendment means nothing, right?

Jesus Christ, i swear, some of you are dimmer than a black hole..

Clearly, some of you have never heard of precedent-setting, or the concept of a slippery slope.. The moment someone is arrested for words on the internet, anything goes.

Insult a feminist? Prison. Commit a "microaggression"? Prison. Disagree with a social justice lunatic on twitter? Prison.

Arresting people for saying stupid things on the internet, or anywhere else, is an absolutely awful, not to mention idiotic idea, because it opens the door for anyone to be arrested for anything they say.

The first amendment does not allow you to make death threats. Any more than it allows you to scream fire in a movie theatre to cause panic.

And this wasn't legit...it was a guy talking out of his ass.

people who are actually going to make an attempt on someone's life, do not telegraph the move.

Yes, people who go on twitter, and say "i'm gonna kill the president", should absolutely be investigated by the secret service.....however, they shouldn't be immediately arrested.

It's a bit annoying that i need to explain this.

Sorry, you make a threat you should be arrested. That's not an acceptable joke anymore than saying I will bomb the airport and claim it was a joke.

There are reasonable ways to voice displeasure. This is not one.

so it is ok to litigate a small business owner out of business for using First Amendment to not bake a cake against their beliefs, but its not ok for a rich CEO to be forced to resign for threatening the life of the President??? Its a strange phenomenon, this selective application of the First.

He stepped in one big time on that post, but, technically he didn't do anything wrong. First amendment allows it. As soon as we start to pick and choose what people can say, then we won't be able to say anything. There is always somebody out there that would say it is offensive or racist. We don't need to open that can.

Threatening to shoot someone goes beyond just speech. That was not a vague threat lol. Probably not a very credible threat, but that's not voicing an opinion.

A threat is still just free speech. If he was to act on it, that's a different story. As much as I hate to admit it, he still has the right to say it as long as he doesn't attempt it.
