1st Amendment and Hate Speech

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

We got the ACLU involved and the case/conviction was dropped immediately before we even had to go through with the appeal.

I was actually hoping for a trial. Would have been fun.

Are you serious? Thats insane.

Ive never heard of such things in the U.S Thought the rule of thumb dont threaten to kill someone and dont yell fire in a crowded movie theatre when there is no fire. Other then that from what I understand its free game. Unless your holding a massive rally speaking shit that will piss a town off...otherwise you need a permit to hold such a rally.


This political correctness is what we gotta worry about. Thats the agenda's way to "curb" freedom of speech.

I've seen cops get serious about someone cursing them, generally writing them up for "disturbing the peace" until an eventual court ruling found that a policemen on duty, because of his elevated legal status, cannot have his peace disturbed.
