Is merely threatening to kill a person a crime? A recent 10th Circuit ruling over turned a district court ruling that Aaron Michael Heineman’s violent poetry directed toward local professors was a protected form of speech. Nick welcomes attorney Eric Benson from Ray Quinney and Nebeker and Marissa Lang from the Salt Lake Tribune to discuss this bizarre case and the larger question; does the First Amendment protect violent hate speech?
