Alex Jones Is Innocent

Does this mean we should be free speech absolutists? That anything goes, verbally, or in writing? No. There is a class of statements that should be banned by law and heavily punished: threats.

If I say to you, give me $100 or I’ll shoot you, or kidnap you child, those are only words. However, I would be a criminal if I seriously said or wrote them to you.

But Alex Jones did nothing even widely approaching such a statement. Yes, he lied about a tragic historical event. But he didn’t even close to engage in libel or slander. Ok, he hurt feelings. That should not be considered a criminal act. He is entirely innocent of the charges laid against him.

First, I’m not a fan of Alex Jones.  And, he has a First Amendment right to publish his theories.  And, I don’t think Sandy Hook was “crisis actors”.

But, I don’t understand how an FBI agents get 90M$ from Alex by any stretch of law or logic.

Hurt feelings aren’t a windfall opportunity.

I am horrifies by the tragedy.

The Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats failed the public in so many ways in this and other shooting cases.  But they pay no penalty.

I don’t see how Alex Jones broke “the law”; maybe common decency or maybe common sense, but that’s about it.

I wonder if this will go to SCOTUS?

Remembering James Cameron’s Titanic Inaccuracy 
by Rev. Austin Miles

*** begin quote ***

To kill a man’s good name, to deliberately slander and libel a fine gentleman officer, a heroic one at that, who saved others at the cost of his own life is unthinkable.

Cameron is too talented a filmmaker to resort this this kind of sensationalism at the expense of good people and their families. He does not need this kind of exploitation to put punch in his films.

So how did Cameron and the studio make amends for slaughtering the reputation of a beloved family member? Why they donated 5,000 pounds to the Lt. Murdoch Memorial Fund which of course, made everything right.

Argh!

At least they could have led with a disclaimer.

But, Hollywood has no morals or ethics. It’s whatever sells tickets.
