I didn't see any speech in that photo...maybe I am missing something?

What I see is treasonous, vile and murderous intentions...contrary to everything decent human beings stand for.

Of course, I didn't say they couldn't do it....and face the consequences. That's my real point - in the America of Trump today, it is actually of benefit to many to be hateful, treasonous and racist. There are no doubt many who would hire these guys due to their belief in the lost cause.

That's a much bigger issue then "can they be prosecuted legally for posting a pic?".

Even if it were illegal, the fact that millions are like them and support them bode poorly for the USA.

What I posted still stands as it had to do with the overly dramatic posts on this thread.
Fair enough.

So the monument to mark the death of Emmit Till makes a nice prop for dares, huh?

I can dig it. I can’t relate, but then, I’m not a conservative. I’m sure they understand you.

That's a good enough punishment for me (although that might put their resumes at the top of the heap for some jobs in Mississippi).

So free speech is fine until it offends *you*, right? Maybe you just need to get your feels under control.
Vandalism is not free speech.

That's a pretty offensive display by a couple of buttheads, they reap what they sow.

No crime as of yet unless they can factually say that they shot the monument. Thats a very low standard for behavior but then again it has been regularly used by our president. The monument has been destroyed several times to the point where they are replacing it with a 500 pound monument. You can bet this trio has acceptance from many of their comrades at home and in their fraternity.

I started a thread yesterday that was deleted for some reason, someone was actually arguing that the woman who recanted her story did nothing wrong and was pressured.

Are you assuming a bit too much? As has been stated, there is no substantive evidence that they had anything to do with the holes in that signage.
