EFFIGY HANGING AS AN EXPRESSION OF FREE SPEECH

"Terry Jones questioned by Secret Service for hanging Obama effigy

'Controversial Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones said he and his followers answered questions from the Secret Service after they erected an effigy of President Barack Obama hanging from a noose outside their Gainesville church this week.
Jones said he was interviewed in the Washington, D.C.-area, where he held meetings to raise financial support for his presidential bid."
Jones may very well be be a fool and/or a buffoon
and Obama may be a national treasure whose racial color may add color to his hanging
but investigating Jones for hanging Obama in effigy can only be regarded as an effort by a government that kills without trial
to chill one of the few traditional rights of Americans to express their feelings concerning those who rule over them.
Possibly, however, the Secret Service is seeking to show it can do something more than diddling whores (not to forget its JFK assassination history),
and, if so, its seeking to frighten Jones may improve both the standing of Jones and that of the Secret Service.
