Wichita Judge fails to issue Preliminary Injunction against Anti-Abortion Activist
In her letter to Dr. Means, Dillard wrote among other things: "You will be checking under your car everyday - because maybe today is the day someone places an explosive under it." Later in the letter, Dillard added: "We will not let this abomination continue without doing everything we can to stop it."I think that Judge is a total idiot; that statement was the absolute definition of a true threat.Although Judge Marten said that Dillard clearly intended to intimidate Dr. Means, he did not believe the letter constituted a "true threat" prohibited under FACE.
Speech that has minimal social value, communicates serious intent to harm another individual, and causes the listener/reader to fear imminent injury is considered a true threat.
With that being the Supreme Court's definition of a true threat, from Watts v. U.S. and Virginia v. Black, does anyone have the audacity to tell me that this speech is protected speech under the first amendment?
