Texan Teen Jailed After Making Sarcastic Threat In Facebook CommentSubmitted by Plants on Fri, 06/28/2013 - 06:43
Just wondering what everyone's take on this is? This appears to be a clear violation of his rights guaranteed by the sixth and first amendments.
Namely, I've been told that his right to a speedy trial hasn't been violated due to a four part test and that he's only been incarcerated for four months, is this true?
If so, I'd think that his right to free speech has clearly been violated, unless this falls under one of the exceptions to free speech that the SCOTUS has ruled on?
Any constitutional experts want to chime in? Trying to make the case for the violations of the first and sixth amendment here if they have indeed been violated.
