Here's my #1A question and I don't pretend to have the answer. At what point is proposed speech so likely to incite violence that time, place and manner restrictions can be placed upon it? At what point does the foreseeable risk to public safety (which I think is a COLLECTIVE AND AN INDIVIDUAL RIGHT) as a whole and, say law enforcement who must provide security for those involved in such speech outweigh the individual right to free expression? Again, I don't know the answer. Yes, the Texas terror attack got me thinking about it, but there are plenty of other examples.
I served 22 years to protect the right of free expression - even expression I find deeply offensive and misguided - whether it be Pamela's event or those who claim to "protest" various things by burning or stomping on the flag. I stand for the Klan's right to rally, etc. Speech that isn't offensive needs no protection.
That said, I also fought for the right to public safety - let's say I'm walking with my kids past the cartoon event not knowing about it and my kid gets shot? At what point does the collective right to public safety permit the restriction of speech that is HIGHLY likely to incite violence?
Ben Franklin once said - Those who would trade liberty for temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. I agree, but I still wonder about the balance?
