Legitimacy has nothing to do with it. Neither does excuses. Neither does law for that matter. But responsibility is responsibility. If you teach your child that he may do anything he wants as long as he doesn't break a law, then you will raise an immoral, heathen prick that will one day invite reaction from others. In this case, the reaction killed others. That's on him and on his wreckless display of his freedoms. It's called taking responsibility for your actions. Like I stated, he is "free" to travel to Libya and face the crowd he safely offended. But he won't...not when there are others that have nothing to do with it than can die for his "freedoms."

You think he should not be allowed to do so, for fear that it may be found offensive?
This isn't a "got-cha" game. If some peaceful Muslims protest an offensive exhibit centering around a religious figure not their own, then someone else should be barred from their own expression of thought? It doesn't work that way. We don't make deals with people in order to avoid being offended.
