Sure, Turner is an asshole, but this angle needs to be investigated. This is the kind of stuff the government got caught doing to left wing activists in the 1960's, so they are definitely capable of this kind of behavior. This needs to be looked into further.
    I don't know...if you're saying that he was egged on or instructed by the FBI to post this kind of incendiary information, I don't buy it. 'Cause if they'da asked Maggie to do it, it woulda' been on tape...by me.

    Turner said he resigned as an informant because the FBI had prodded him to remove postings of the names and addresses of judges even though it was not illegal to publish them.
    Posting their addresses ought to have landed him in jail. That's just plain terrorism.

    I agree with your last sentence, but I still feel it appropriate that this matter be looked into a little deeper. Our government has played dirty tricks like this before.

    On December 6, 2006, Turner announced on his website:

    "We may have to ASSASSINATE some of the people you elect on Nov. 7! This could be your LAST ELECTION CHANCE, to save this Republic... Sorry to have to be so blunt, but the country is in mortal danger from our present government and our liberty is already near dead because of this government. If you are too stupid to turn things around with your vote, there are people out here like me who are willing to turn things around with guns, force and violence. We hope our method does not become necessary."[32]

    Since the announcement was made, Turner has had difficulties finding a host for his website. He alleged that his website has been the target of denial of service attacks, and subsequently filed a pro se lawsuit.[33][34][35]

    On April 4, 2008, Turner encouraged violence against Lexington, Massachusetts school superintendent Paul Ash for establishing a new curriculum supporting gays and lesbians. On his website, he stated:

    "I advocate parents using FORCE AND VIOLENCE against Superintendent Paul B. Ash as a method of defending the health and safety of school children presently being endangered through his politically-correct indoctrination into deadly, disease-ridden sodomite lifestyles."[36]

    He went on to provide Ash's personal information, including his address.[36] Fourteen months later, on June 2, 2009, Turner posted on his blog

    "Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed. Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty. A small price to pay to assure freedom for millions."

    The next day Turner posted information on how to find Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook and Judges Richard Posner and William Joseph Bauer

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    They should have found him not guilty due to insanity, then call the men in white coats to take him away. LOL.

    Haha maybe, but then he would have posted the addresses of those taking care of him and told people that those doctors need to die as well.

    You know what they say about people like him? Always pointing the finger at others, and never taking responsibility. That's too bad. Why didn't he just man up on his radio show, take a little responsibility, and say....

    "I am a douche bag. Kill me".
