While harsh and probably excessive, free speech even heated rants are much different then an actual action. The two judges are offended because they have that same profession. Our rights are being stamped out. ' Wont be long id chips, no currency unless its registered and folks being made to stay in certain zones. Regular people no doubt are desperate for lawyers to step up defense of the Usa Constitution..
Hold on folks its coming. Learn to think for your self. Homeland security is training local sheriffs nationwide to crush you on order and in an INSTANT. Nice eh.

@ 1 - "probably" excessive. Turner said the judges should die. What, in your view, would have been unquestionably excessive? Is your pseudonym an abbreviation for "from the Sudan and 15 years old"?

Threatening a judge with death because they disagree with you on the interpretation of the Constitution is not the kind of behavior that works well in a democracy like ours. I am glad that this nutball is going to be spending some time in the pokey.

But, where's the threat? He said they deserve to die, not that he intended to kill them. Nor did he suggest that others should kill them. The wackos who protest at military funerals say that gays soldiers deserve to die but we don't prosecute them.

Sorry for the typo; should have been "gays and even straight soldiers."

I think what puts this over the top, and out of the First Amendment realm, is the fact that he posted their photos, work addresses and room numbers. If that's not an attempt to incite others to do violence, then I don't know what is.
