PLANNED PARENTHOOD V. AMERICAN COALITION OF LIFE ACTIVISTS (ACLA) >
(The ACLA was so called convicted on threat statutes; also ordered to pay a HUGE civil
award.) (This was the anti-abortion case-thing. Called the "Nuremberg Files" case by many.
Where they posted "wanted" posters showing abortion doctors, but where certain other
self-motivated persons, apart from their postings, and without collaboration physically to do
so with the ACLA, did commit a few killings of some abortion doctors. Sure, the activists were
"worked up." Life is important; can you blame them for that? But the one group murdered,
whereas the other only expressed itself in a way as to describe how strongly they felt; and,
the group expressing itself was in no wise proved to be "plotting murders" whatsoever. Yet,
this group expressing itself was humiliated with convictions
on "threat" statutes and forced to pay a huge civil award. America, let's give these folks, the ACLA,
back the constitution of free speech we've been lying to them about, thank you.)
The ACLA (American Coalition of Life Activists) was 1st Amendment-allowable. They are NOT convictable of a threat; their speech is allowable. There was NO PROOF WHATSOEVER they collaborated to physically create a murder.
AS IN "SPEECH WHICH CONTRIBUTES TO THE PUBLIC INTEREST," (a general, 1st amendment criteria), so they were but in the sidelines, cheering the battle OTHERS randomly, and apart from their DIRECTION, undertook. This is legal. At worst, they should have been ordered to stop posting the speech to meet THEN PREVAILING CONDITIONS OF PUBLIC INTEREST. AS SPEECH IN THE INTEREST, SO THE LAW TO ORDER SAME STOPPAGE-PUBLIC INTEREST (a type of "restraining order," at worst).
OVERBREADTH OF THREAT STATUTES EXISTS BY ATTEMPTING TO CONVICT THE ACLA OF ANY THREAT, HOWEVER.
ANY CONVICTION OR CIVIL AWARD AGAINST THE ACLA IS ILLEGAL.
NOW PRESIDING. We hereby reverse.
(Democracy's cops are merely tyranny re-stated.)
Silly U.S. Do you convict your cheerleaders, then pretend your "constitution"?
Time to straighten out.
