Oh, say, can you see... Können Sie sehen?
A blast from our ancient past:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Oh, look at that: the Bill of Rights.
They'll be arresting me, next.

You have no bill of rights. You lost it along with Hebus Corpus.
Too late contestant.

LMAO. I couldn't care less what you think about me encouraging others to flag posts. Don't like it? Too bad. If I see a thread that i think is important, I will try and draw as much attention to it as I can. Who cares if you approve or not.

Yes, I am dead serious. And no they didn't have a search warrant. They didn't really care and neither did I because all they did was scold me. They didn't arrest me or anything. I was in high school at the time. I think they realized it was just a high school kid playing a joke and decided it was nothing serious, because it wasn't. They were actually pretty cool about the whole thing. They thought it was funny, but said they were required to do their job and investigate it.

Threatening someone with written words? Is that really a threat or an opinionated rant? This is a very thin line we are crossing here.There should be no crime in putting thought on paper(or the ethernet)A crime is committed when a physical action is taken against a person or property.
Arresting bloggers for thoughts for any reason is dubious.Even the sicko writing about what the little girls were wearing.What actual crime did he commit?I emphatically agree that his actions and intent are suspect and in polite society completly unacceptable. Yet are we really willing to allow for the advent of the thought police? Or are we still a country that believes in personal freedoms and freedom of speach?

We need to create a blog about the political bloggers being arrested, write up an article about their particular case and repost everything they exposed on their blog to spread their information further.
