Should this be protected free speech?

Snowman with noose appalls Idaho home's neighbors | ajc.com

Quote:
HAYDEN, Idaho A white separatist drew complaints from neighbors and a visit from law enforcement officers after building a snowman shaped like a member of the Ku Klux Klan on his front lawn.
Quote:
Eliseuson could have been charged with creating a public nuisance. Idaho law defines such a nuisance as anything "offensive to the senses" or that interferes with the comfort of an entire neighborhood. Eliseuson removed the noose and toppled the snowman after he talked with officers.

Re: Should this be protected free speech?

Unfortunately, no matter how disgusting, ignorant, hateful, etc., it is, yeah free speech should be protected. Sickening, but true. Of course the neighbours should be allowed to use the noose on him as well, IMHO.

Another nonaligned spokesperson.

Good stuff, trucks bring it!

I don't care if my thread goes off topic, it's all BS anyway!!!
