Report: Secret Service Opens Investigation into Kathy Griffin Beheading President Trump

http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/05/31/report-secret-service-investigation-kathy-griffin-photo-shoot/

By Tuesday evening, the Secret Service had issued a longer statement — which did not mention Griffin or her horrific photo.

“The U.S. Secret Service has a critical mission. It is always unfortunate when people make statements that could be perceived as threats,” the statement read, according to ABC News. “We don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent. Each alleged or perceived threat has to be investigated thoroughly which taxes Secret Service manpower and resources that could be utilized elsewhere.”

 

Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969)   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandenburg_v._Ohio

was a landmark United States Supreme Court case based on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The Court held that government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless that speech is "directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action".  Specifically, it struck down Ohio's criminal syndicalism statute, because that statute broadly prohibited the mere advocacy of violence. 

 

This may not be true, but it should be.  Her position raises the act above protected 1st Amendment rights.
