I do believe that threats towards someone should not be tolerated; even under the guise of freedom of speech.
you want better education and everyone to have a fair chance at life but you think it's ok to promote murder and get paid for it.

Why? What harm could come from a threat? A person verbalizing their intentions doesn't make it any more or less likely to be carried out. It is the acting out of the threat that is already unlawful, no need to further restrict freedom of speech. Besides if someone is planning on harming me, I would like to know.
Well, it is essentially a form of verbal assault.

I think what is actually 'making' the prosecutor's case is the fact that the guy had recent interaction with two police officers, and they are saying the lyrics were directly towards the two officers. Not necessarily all cops in general.
let me start by saying that every single one of you is defending a convicted coc aine salesman that has an afinity for killing cops.
nah, let's just let the criminals talk about whatever they want over mass communication devices and get paid for it. that sounds like the kind of freedom that i want!
First, I don't know this man or what he did. . Or maybe he is a dealer or user, whatever thats irrelavent.
Second, this man didn't physically kill anyone(as far as I know pertaining to the story). And if he would have been in any situation where the police and DA would have believed him to be part of something like that he would have been charged with murder or some sort of murder conspiracy charge.
Third, this wasn't found on msnbc.com or cnn.com. I don't know if they reported this or anything like this but I highly doubt it. I found this story on a hip hop website that I would not call Msm. A website that actually had an editor write a piece about hearing about the obama anti-christ conspiracies(If I remember correctly they just dismissed it, but neverless).
Forth, I find discrimination to be based on fear. Now by you confessing your blatant discrimination I find you to be scared. Not scared of people in power taking away your rights (not suprising for someone who said he hoped the NWO would rule over us for thousands of years) but scared of different people and cultures that beliefs don't fit in with your own. Also, when you started talking about child sperm and guitar strings you sounded like an idiot.
What this is about is not whether we approve of what this man says but whether we approve of his right to say it...And I do.
You said we should just lock all drug users up? Think about the simple fact that when you add in to the equation the amount of people addicted to prescription drugs to the already large amount of people that use "illegal" drugs I highly doubt you would find more than a handful of families in america that wouldn't be affected by this, someway or somehow.
