I don't understand the 8-1 decision of the Court on this and am fearful of the repercussions from it. Will hate speech, bullying, and other forms of violence be allowed now without prosecution? Although all of them were repulsed by the words and actions of WBC, they upheld the First Amendment. Article HERE. I agree with Justice Alito in his dissenting opinion.
Justice Samuel Alito, the lone dissenter, said Snyder wanted only to "bury his son in peace." Instead, Alito said, the protesters "brutally attacked" Matthew Snyder to attract public attention. "Our profound national commitment to free and open debate is not a license for the vicious verbal assault that occurred in this case," he said.Where do we go from here?
