    To far to many people, they believe that "rights" are what allows them to do whatever they want, but if somebody else is doing something they do not like then they are exceeding their rights.

    True, and in the case of your original post the boy who was being bullied was his threat an imminent threat with real and present ability--- or just loose talk coming out of frustration from being harassed? Which is why law enforcement is tasked with investigating and determining if there really is a threat. The words are only a violation of the law if they are a real threat are they not? If we attempted to incarcerate everyone for loose talk we had better start building more prisons.
    Ignorance of your rights is no excuse.
