Internet Trolling to Squash Free Speech?

The Connecticut State Police have been accused of hacking into computers nationwide and even worldwide [story] when they are being blasted with words and exposed for the thugs they are. When others are out to expose the brass in Official Connecticut, legislators, their corporate and financial raider friends, the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services, and the Special Operations of the Connecticut State Police go into spy and espionage mode. If the Connecticut State Police can put the campaign manager for the Green Party Candidate for Governor on their "Secret Enemies List" to arrest on sight [story], I have to at least question what really went on the below story:



Hal Turner, Talk Radio Host, Facing Charges For Inciting Violence Against Officials [Huffington Post]

Things don't appear to be going to well for New Jersey internet radio host and white supremacy-enthusiast Hal Turner. The onetime candidate for Congress and inveterate threatener of public officials has run afoul of the law, and will face charges in Connecticut. The Hartford Courant has the news:

Turner, who has been identified as a white supremacist and anti-Semite by several anti-racism groups, hosts an Internet radio program with an associated blog. On Tuesday, the blog included a post that promised to release the home addresses of state Rep. Michael Lawlor, state Sen. Andrew McDonald and Thomas Jones of the State Ethics Office.


"Mr. Turner's comments are above and beyond the threshold of free speech," Capitol Police Chief Michael J. Fallon said in an e-mail announcing the warrant. "He is inciting others through his website to commit acts of violence and has created fear and alarm. He should be held accountable for his conduct."

The remarks on the blog were a reaction to the recent controversy over a bill that would have changed the way the Roman Catholic Church is governed, taking power away from church officials and turning it over to lay members. It was pulled in mid-March following an outcry from Catholics across the state and questions about its constitutionality.

The comments in question included, "It is our intent to foment direct action against these individuals personally. These beastly government officials should be made an example of as a warning to others in government: Obey the Constitution or die," and "If any state attorney, police department or court thinks they're going to get uppity with us about this, I suspect we have enough bullets to put them down, too."

These sorts of threats of impending violence are nothing new to Turner.

In December of 2006, Turner called for political assassinations:

"We may have to ASSASSINATE some of the people you elect on Nov. 7! This could be your LAST ELECTION CHANCE, to save this Republic... Sorry to have to be so blunt, but the country is in mortal danger from our present government and our liberty is already near dead because of this government. If you are too stupid to turn things around with your vote, there are people out here like me who are willing to turn things around with guns, force and violence. We hope our method does not become necessary."

In March of 2008, when Sean Hannity was confronted with having been previously associated with Turner, Hannity's forceful denials seemed to anger a betrayed Turner:

I was quite disappointed when Sean Hannity at first tried to say he didn't know me and then went on to say that I ran some senate campaign in New Jersey. In fact, Sean Hannity does know me and we were quite friendly a number of years ago.

Turner went on to threaten: "Another big difference is that I am perfectly willing to use force and violence against my enemies while Sean Hannity and others are not. Those using me as a prop to attack Sean Hannity would do well to remember this fact."

A month later, Turner was inciting violence against Paul B. Ash, the Lexington, Massachusetts superintendent of schools:

"I advocate parents using FORCE AND VIOLENCE against Superintendent Paul B. Ash as a method of defending the health and safety of school children presently being endangered through his politically-correct indoctrination into deadly, disease-ridden sodomite lifestyles."

The Courant reports that Turner will be in a New Jersey court today for extradition proceedings.

My main problem with the story above is if Mr. Turner broke the law, federal law, why didn't the FBI arrest Turner, not the Connecticut State Police reaching out to New Jersey? This is the true nature of the Connecticut State Police:

Connecticut obviously likes to model after Germany. This is no better than Germany arresting citizens for Holocaust denial.

Look at the statute they charged him with.

Sec. 53a-179a. Inciting injury to persons or property: Class C felony.(a) A person is guilty of inciting injury to persons or property when, in public or private, orally, in writing, in printing or in any other manner, he advocates, encourages, justifies, praises, incites or solicits the unlawful burning, injury to or destruction of any public or private property or advocates, encourages, justifies, praises, incites or solicits any assault upon any organization of the armed forces of the United States, as defined by section 27-103, or of this state, as defined by section 27-2, or the police force of this or any other state or upon any officer or member thereof or the organized police or fire departments of any municipality or any officer or member thereof, or the killing or injuring of any class or body of persons, or of any individual.

----------

Hal Turner could face up to 10 years in jail.

This law is nothing more than a way to silence free speech. Look at the words:

"advocates, encourages, justifies, praises, incites or solicits"

Justifies? Praises?

This law is so poorly written that merely speaking of the Second Amendment and the Declaration of Independence or agreeing with our founding fathers - could get anyone arrested and jailed for up to 10 years.

This also means that our own history teachers may be charged with a crime for agreeing with the Constitution.

This law needs to be repealed.

It has many times been reported that Turner is an FBI informant, an agent provocateur. (google it)

That could explain why Connecticut and not the FBI was involved.

We're awfully quiet now that the FBI did arrest Turner. Where's all the "free speech" that usually fills the blogs?
