Get even for what?
You never said a word for 8 years while Bush redistributed 80% of the wealth to 2% of the population. I just saw a headline that said, 'Hannity: Take all Kuwait's oil", huh? (paraphrased) This is not the way adults behave. You can't threaten others because you don't like them, that is not the democratic process, especially when running for office.
These people don't understand civil discourse at all! It's ridiculous. If someone cuts in front of you in line at the market are you going to shoot them? No, although I surmize the same people use their vehicles as weapons occasionally.
Adults, wake up. Kids are watching your behavior, so behave like adults. Others are often not going to agree with you or have a different idea about the way things should be, that's what make us individuals. If your ideas take my freedoms from me, or visa versa there must be a way to make it work, it's called COMPROMISE, that's what adults do in private industry and life daily, grow up.

It's time to start taking in some of these people who think they can remedy their problems with calling for people to be hurt, maimed, killed or taken out. Enough already.

Give them their trial and then put them in jail for a long time. Make people realize there are consequences to their words and deeds.

I don't see the illegality here. Not saying its legal I guess I'm just confused?

I'm Once I had a neighbor who threatened to harpoon me and various other physical threats. Each time police were called and then they told us there is nothing they can do. People are allowed to say those things if they want. I also know of a friend whose husband threatened to kill her severalt imesand each time they said there is no such law against saying threats to people.

So where are these laws? Any links anyone?

I think the difference is that she was making threats to government officials.

Actually, the police was wrong, or being lazy.
If someone actually makes a THREAT (as opposed to calling you names), they are supposed to do something about it, at the very least talk to the person and open a record about them and warn them they WILL be charged.

In the case above, I think making the threats public makes it clearly unavoidable, something has to be done.

The quiet ones----Hinckley, Sirhan, and so many others were "quiet"---and people died. Allen's big mouth MIGHT have saved lives. Let the fools talk. At least we'll know who and where they are!

It seems as though our justice system is very selective. Michelle Bachmann is still running around lose after stating that she wanted her supporters armed and dangerous to support her cause. Allen is a Timothy McVeigh wannabe and there will be more persons on the Fringe that will be coming out of the woodwork.........Loughner was the "Catalyst!

She told her constituents to become armed and dangerous. Those kinds of metaphors need to stop. Nuts like Wilson, arrested in a shoot out in the San Francisco area with cops, who admitted to being a Glen Beck follower, and Laugner take those words seriously.
