It's arguable whether he "should" have been arrested (or at the very least questioned, or on someone's radar) regarding the video content.Says he was arrested for possession of an assault rifle (CA) and a high capacity magazine (CA) plus a child endangerment charge. He wasn't arrested for the video content.
Agreed.It's arguable whether he "should" have been arrested (or at the very least questioned, or on someone's radar) regarding the video content.
However, it's really unfortunate (and ultimately should be deemed unconstitutional some day) for him to be arrested for possessing an "assault rifle" (whatever that is), and a "high capacity magazine" (ditto).
:thumsup Excellent observation. (No 1A violation.)It's like the idiots on the live "reality" cop TV shows.... they get pulled over for a busted tail light. But, they get ARRESTED for the outstanding warrants... or the crystal meth they have on them for resale. They didn't get arrested for the busted tail light.
This guy wasn't charged with making a scary video. He faces other charges that were discovered by virtue of attracting attention to himself with a scary video.
The headline is misleading. Yes... he was arrested AFTER making the video (chronologically). But, he wasn't arrested FOR making the video. No violation of 1A here.
