    You can only get away with that when you're talking about GW or any other Republican. Hell there was a book and a movie written about killing Bush and the left LOVED it.

    The President has always been treated with more security than others.

    FWIW, I think threats against somebody should be illegal.

    It's not about security. You said the 1st amendment is about not getting put in jail for an opinion. I'm showing you that you are wrong.

    In Brandenburg v. Ohio, the Supreme Court held that "... the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit a State to forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action." Threats against the president or other public figures are always investigated in order to determine the level of risk involved, and those who make them can be charged if it is determined that their threats are credible. The "Kill Zimmerman pages clearly constitute incitement, as defined by the court, and Facebook, by permitting the pages to stay up, was risking prosecution for aiding and abetting.

    Even though Facebook eventually took the page down(but is allowing a Kill Zimmerman group), it's too late. If anything happens to Zimmerman, even in an attempt, Zimmerman or his family can sue the pants off of Facebook and the administrators of Facebook should be prosecuted criminally for refusing to pull the page. Everyone who had reported the page should still have their response from Facebook and should forward all of them to Zimmerman's attorney.
