They should all be shot.
Meanwhile chick who makes up story about rape and condemns innocent guy to jail for 10 years, completely destroying his life goes unpunished.
Only in America...
edit: Well, actually, rest of the world with EU on the top learns quite fast this overly correct BS

Deserved, doesn't matter if it isn't illegal to me
He should be beaten to a limp for that.
I like my philosophy. You absolutely have the right to say whatever you want to say. But sometimes you also have to pay the consequences for what your actions as well.
This is a time he has to pay. And rightfully so. An adult making fun of a disabled child. How fucking disgusting and low can someone get?
the Term Freedom of speech does not literary mean you can say anything, it has its limits: sorry lazy.. just gonna paste an example in here
Criticism of the government and advocacy of unpopular ideas that people may find distasteful or against public policy are almost always permitted. There are exceptions to these general protections, including the Miller test for obscenity, child pornography laws, speech that incites imminent lawless action, and regulation of commercial speech such as advertising. Within these limited areas, other limitations on free speech balance rights to free speech and other rights, such as rights for authors and inventors over their works and discoveries (copyright and patent), protection from imminent or potential violence against particular persons (restrictions on fighting words), or the use of untruths to harm others (slander). Distinctions are often made between speech and other acts which may have symbolic significance.
Freedom of speech includes the right:
Not to speak (specifically, the right not to salute the flag).
West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943).
Of students to wear black armbands to school to protest a war (“Students do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate.”).
Tinker v. Des Moines, 393 U.S. 503 (1969).
To use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages.
Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971).
To contribute money (under certain circumstances) to political campaigns.
Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1 (1976).
To advertise commercial products and professional services (with some restrictions).
Virginia Board of Pharmacy v. Virginia Consumer Council, 425 U.S. 748 (1976); Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977).
To engage in symbolic speech, e.g., burning the flag in protest.
Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989); United States v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990).
Freedom of speech does not include the right:
To incite actions that would harm others (e.g. “[S]hout[ing] ‘fire’ in a crowded theater.”).
Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919).
To make or distribute obscene materials.
Roth v. United States, 354 U.S. 476 (1957).
To burn draft cards as an anti-war protest.
United States v. O’Brien, 391 U.S. 367 (1968).
To permit students to print articles in a school newspaper over the objections of the school administration.
Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 484 U.S. 260 (1988).
Of students to make an obscene speech at a school-sponsored event.

Of students to advocate illegal drug use at a school-sponsored event.
Morse v. Frederick, __ U.S. __ (2007).
The man is certainly an asshole, and very immature. What he did was wrong, but I'm disgusted by the fact that he is being sent to jail for something that isn't illegal. He didn't violate her rights, at all. He simply imitated the way she walks. Bullying should hardly be a jail-worthy taboo, and those who want to deprive someone of almost all of their freedoms because they have hurt feelings are no better than the actual bully. Jailing the man doesn't solve the problem, this girl is going to be made fun of by people like this man, and people that are far crueler in her lifetime.
