Everyone can agree that one of the staples of the American way is the First Amendment or freedom of speech. Without this, you couldn't speak out against the negative things that happen or potentially even share parts of your culture with others. When does sharing your thoughts become dangerous? Can social media posts become threatening, at least enough to cause a stir or an arrest? If you've been accused of threats of violence, you may want to discuss this case and how it will affect you with your attorney.
A man in Montana has been charged with two felonies after a Maryland man reported him to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The man had written several threats online, although he claims he was just trying to draw attention to problems in the world. He's been charged with criminal defamation and intimidation, but some are arguing that he was using his right to free speech.
