16. The "problem" with free speech

 

is that the free speech you hear isn't always what you want to hear. The First Amendment protects both your right to voice your opinion and the right of your ideological adversaries to voice theirs. Some feel certain acts or statements are insensitive, and they may be right, but those acts and statements are no less protected than any other free speech.

I hope this young man sues the police and the school for their gross violation of his rights under color of authority, use of excessive force, and unlawful detainment, and I hope he wins a HUGE award.
