Cannibal Cop: First Amendment Violated?

March 15, 2013

So, did you guys hear about the Cannibal Cop? Either way, you should watch this week’s video. Because as unfamiliar or disgusted as you might be with the case, it brings up some interesting First Amendment issues. The bottom line is, no matter how disgusting our thoughts or words might be, they are protected under our First Amendment. Organizations like the ACLU work hard to protect ALL free speech, even hateful or scary, because silencing one person silences us all. Or something like that. So this dude might go to jail for life, and he technically did nothing heinous. I think it’s important to take a look at this case before he rots in jail and we all forget about him. That’s what I’m talking about this week.
