You still have your first amendment rights, no one came to this guys house in the middle of his night and killed his family for having a different opinion. Heck no one informed on him he didnt go to a consentration camp for slave labor or get tortured. He still has his first amendment rights. He could have said what ever he wanted to his son or a stranger 100 yards away and nothign would have happened. It was the getting in the face part that got him arrested. Simple as that. AND HE WASNT CONVICTED OF ANYTHING THIS DOESNT DESERVE TO BE IN THE NEWS
than why arrest him and incarcerate him and make him pay a 500$ bail? wrongful imprisonment would be one reason to sue the governement.
(again i want to emphasize i do not think what the guy did is right, but i also do believe heavily in our freedoms and that they are taken away by more and more legislation every day and not one of the officials that run for office nor are elected try to save those freedoms) ..
