    Ted Nugent Threats or Free Speech?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DaElmersBack shared his reaction to CNN columnist LZ Granderson's op-ed calling for Ted Nugent to be arrested, which he believes would be a violation of Nugent's right to free speech. 'I want to live in a world where you can speak your mind freely without fear of being arrested or imprisoned,' he said. 'Many people talk about locking Ted up for his comments, this is exactly what many countries do today: Lock people up for speaking their mind.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    Do you really think or feel that Ted Nugent threatened the presidents life? Is it really that hard to read in-between the lines? As an American I see his comments as "Free Speech" - He is explaining how HE feels about the administration... Nothing more, nothing less.. His feelings and thoughts.


    Issues like Healthcare, Gun Rights & Immigration are things Americans are concerned about. Policies that involve "Arresting American Citizens and throwing them in jail with no lawyer nor trial" for "possibly" being a terrorist is one of many concerns.. Simply, IF they feel you are a threat, you can be detained.. I imagine it is issues like this that Ted is concerned about just as I am.. Do YOU think Ted Nugent really threatened Obama or was he just speaking his mind..?
