    The producer of the controversial anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” has been arrested for violating terms of his probation and is set for an appearance today in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

    snip

    The judge rejected a plea from Nakoula’s lawyer, who argued that the convicted felon’s life would be in danger at an L.A. lockup due to the facility's large population of Muslim inmates.

    snip

    Investigators have not yet provided details about how Nakoula allegedly violated probation, but it seems clear that his involvement in the “Innocence of Muslim” production is central to the government's new charge.

    Isn't that great? We don't have a 1st amendment right anymore under Obama...

    The film maker going before the courts might be valid as he may well of violated his parole. But there is no doubt that this highlights that his parole officer (and the system) has issues, for if he wasn't brought into the spotlight, it appears none of this would have happened.

    The hypocrisy is so thick here that you can cut it with a knife. Nakoula violated his probation. I don't know where you have been, but I have heard that you go to jail if you violate probation. And there is a reason that one of the conditions of his probation is not to be on the internet. He used the internet to commit the financial crimes for which he was convicted. He agreed to the terms of his probation, and then violated it. Yes, he broke the law, so he is going to jail. This isn't about First Amendment rights at all, but about a douche bag who is getting the punishment he deserves for violating his probation.

    He's free to do as he likes. We're free to react rationally to it. We can show the world the proper reaction to valid exercise of rights. Lead by example.

    If you do not care to back up your words, well, that reflects on nobody but yourself. I'm not here for a chest thumping competition, I asked you some questions, if you do not care to answer, then fine. It reflects upon yourself, no matter how much you try to divert with personal attacks.
    You asked me questions based on a distortion of what I said. That distortion reflects on you as someone unworthy of a serious response. If you want to be taken seriously, then don't distort what other people said. Until you show a pattern of being able to do that, your posts are worthless. Don't blame me for your failings as a poster.

    Ah, so we get more diversion and personal attacks... the norm.

    Again you said:

    "First, it seems that everyone who tries to do that ends up dead or catalyzing riots that end in other people being dead. "

    So, what is your solution to peoples free speech 'pissing off' others and causing them to be violent? If it's not a removal or strict restriction of the 1st amendment, then what is it?

    This is no distortion, no matter how badly you don't want to answer the question.

    You think too much of yourself if you think I feel "badly" about anything that you post. And the fact that you think "a removal or strict restriction of the 1st amendment" has anything to do with what I posted further proves that you don't understand what I said and that you are projecting your assumptions about me, probably because of my lean, onto my post.

    Learn how to read. Then get back to me.

    He would have burned our Constitution but our politicians already did that years ago.

    And a repeat of the personal attacks rather than content.

    Yet another 'liberal' out there that will not support their position with actual data, will not be specific about things, and will not answer simple questions about what they say.

    Just the sort of stuff that brings down the quality around here (not that there's much of that).
