The Tallahassee O Does Not Condone Or Support Any “True Threats” Against Police Officers Or Anyone.  We Are A Peaceful Website For Exposing Public Corruption, Injustices And Personal Opinions For Government Officials To Do Better By Many People!

Public Criticisms Of Police Officers And Publishing Their Personally-identifying Information For Their Work In The Public Eye Is Always Protected As Free Speech Under The First Amendment.  However, There Have Also Been Some Interesting Free Speech Cases Handled In Federal Court Under The First Amendment In America That Protected What Appears To Have Been Threats.  See This Surprising Case Decision At The Link Below:

 Urging Obama’s Assassination Is Lawful Online Speech, Divided Appeals Court Says

It Will Be Interesting To See The Outcome Of The Case Below Due To Sometimes “Conflicting Opinions” In The Courts By Various Judges In Relation To Threat Related Types Of Speech.  Often Times, The Higher Courts Will Strike Down Such False Arrests That Are Unconstitutional For Not Being Properly Applied To The Law.   The Lower Courts Of Kangaroo Courts Are Often Good Ol’ Boy Networks That Follow The Law Very Loosely Because Of Personal And Political Bias And Connections To The Officers Or Government Officials.
