If this was a group of Muslim students chanting,
no Americans will ever be one of us,
praise ISIS, celebrate 9/11
would some of you still defend that as freedom of speech without repercussions or privacy laws? What would be the difference?
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
That being said, I can't believe people are in here defending them and excusing it away as free speech. People's reaction to it is free speech too. I just hope people can temper their reaction to it so that these kids learn their lesson but still have a future where they aren't so backed into a corner by opposition that they resist change out of spite and therefore DON'T learn a lesson.
Expectation of privacy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The bus they were in was not specifically provided to ensure privacy; it was provided to transport them.Examples of places where a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy are a person's residence or hotel room and public places which have been specifically provided by businesses or the public sector in order to ensure privacy, such as public restrooms, private portions of jailhouses, or a phone booth.
In general, one cannot have a reasonable expectation of privacy in things held out to the public. A well-known example is that there are no privacy rights in garbage left for collection in a public place. Other examples include: pen registers that record the numbers dialed from particular telephones; conversations with others, though there could be a Sixth Amendment violation if the police send an individual to question a defendant who has already been formally charged
And OK is a one-party consent state
I would think that it should be unbelievable that someone doesn't "defend them".
Because you don't like what they say, find it personally repulsive to varying degrees -- from feigned to legitimate outrage -- should not in any way prohibit you from acknowledging that they have a right to their thoughts and opinions no matter how egregious they are or how vulgar they are in their representation.
Calypso Louie aka Louis Farrakhan has said many disparaging things about the white race, they disgust many but he's allowed to say them. Why is this different?
Who was it -- Jesse Jackson and his "hymie-town" comment? Still gets airtime. Any news show would love to put him on. But all of the sudden a couple of privileged white kids get caught on tape acting like privileged white kids (privileged being the accusers take on them not necessarily my own) and the world's on fire.
Gimme a friggin break...
