He is scum, but I respect his First Amendment Rights.

Meet Geo Farley.


He is the Facebook friend of a friend and as you can see, he does not like cops. He is an asshole and I have told him so a couple of times using different and less polite wording.

And as disgusting as he can get, he has the sacred right to post shit like this. Yes, even hurtful and very offensive speech is rightfully protected.

Of course, that does not mean I have to shut up and not allow others to see what kind of scum he can be.

I love to spread information.

  1. It is a joy to read someone who seems to get the First Amendment. For too many years, especially while I was on active duty, I seemed to only find people who wanted to reinstate the Alien and Sedition Acts. They just could not understand that Freedom Of Speech ESPECIALLY applies to speech you want to condemn. BRAVO, Sir!


  2. Well…actually: telling people to take an illegal action (the side 3 images don’t, but the main image pretty much does) is not protected.

    Illegal acts do not become legal just because you involve free speech in them. Soliciting/promoting a murder is an illegal act…using public free speech to do so instead of a private conversation in a back room does not suddenly change that.

    Saying you’re happy when cops die: disgusting but protected.

    Actually telling people “go make sure cops get planted (i.e. kill cops)”: not protected.
