Comments on National Public Radio Website about trailer for Innocence of Muslims:


Comment: Someone help me out here please. A person cannot yell "Fire" in a crowded theater because it will cause injury or death. Does this movie come under the proviso as an act of "free speech" or did the people who produced it do so will full knowledge that riots and deaths of US citizens would result? Is this not punishable within our legal system?

Response: I think this is still covered under free speech. Otherwise, you're basically turning the "fire in a crowded room" limitation into a German style hate speech law.
