    From the OP...
    Terry Jones was deported from Germany for abusing his congregation.

    Was a permit necessary? Is that what the police say?


    From what I understand the police arrested him for no disclosed reason and that they would be announcing that reason at a later time. Sounds like they arrested him and will be making up a reason later.

    He faces two charges: unlawful conveyance of fuel, and unlawful open carry of a firearm, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

    They will bring charges. You can't build a bonfire in a public park.. In most towns and cities you can't even burn leaves. Terry Jones is crazy.. that's why he was deported from Germany. He abused his congregation.

    I am sorry it makes muslims sad, but we have something called freedom of speech in america and it should not be run into the ground by foreigners. There better be some sort of legitimate charge on this. I could see a danger in toting around that much paper soaked in kerosene and deciding to light it on fore without some sort of fire prevention presence, and perhaps a fine for it. I can understand that his potential plan might have been conducted outside of the realm of safety. But if the only reason that he was arrested was because he was burning them and there was no safety or legitimate law broken the muslims in afganistan can kiss my american ass and he should be set free. The laws protecting freedom of speech are not there to protect speech that muslims approve of, it is there to protect speech that is unpleasant and hated. He should have every right to burn korans as he sees fit here in america. You have every right to think him a horrible person and an ass, but there is no reason to stop him.

    Those soldiers that died did so to protect free speech and america according to the so called propaganda. They are at war which means people are going to try and succede on occasion in killing them. If that is distasteful then perhaps they should be called home to protect US borders and should not be half way around the world playing games with locals who want them dead for being on afganistan land. I don't like the asshole and I find him a dirty old bastard with nothing but hate in his heart. Still when we start arresting him for this sort of protest then we can start arresting gays because they drive others to violence by being who they are. We can arrest the blacks for driving white people to violent acts. While we are at it let us toss that zimmerman creep in jail because his release set off a number of violent acts across the US and killed some people. Those are stupid ideas and anyone who supports them deserves no freedom and should ask the permission of everyone on earth who might be pissed if they are allowed to speak.

    Time to go down to the dollar store and pick me up some korans and some lighter fluid because I am going to have myself a bonfire. I think I will do the right thing and draw a picture of muhammed on all of them just to show what free speech means to all those who cant take it. This is about our most important right and it is high time we start showing our authorities and the world that it will not be taken away by fascist religious assholes because they cannot take criticism and protest. This is enforcing the moral values of a religion and it is as wrong to do it for whiny ass muslims as it is to do it for whiny ass christians.

    Glad they could stop this dickhead before he cost more life's.
    1) Burning a book, regardless of how offensive some may perceive it, dies not "cost anyone their lives". Surely people may react to violence to such, but that is their own choice, and they are responding with violence to an action that harms no one.

    2) I hope he fights this barring any legitimate permitting concern (I imagine three thousand gas soaked Korans is a pretty large fire), or similar that he sues

    The police routinely detain suspects with the formal charges coming later, so no conspiracy there.

    I see the freedoms associated with religion like most others, yours ends at my nose. Praise GAWD all you want, but attacking another religion is over the line. Would we sit by and claim 1st amendment rights to burn a BBQ full of Torahs coz them Jews kilt Jesus?

    Which is rather irrelevant to the discussion or the arrest ...
