Radio host Hal Turner was arrested in that state Wednesday on a warrant obtained by Capitol police in Hartford. Turner, who also hosts a blog, is accused of inciting his listeners and readers to "take up arms," and of singling out two Connecticut lawmakers and a state ethics official.

Well you can't yell FIRE in a crowed theatre so I hope the radio guy was doing more than speaking his mind. We do have free speech in this country and if they arrest talk show hosts for just saying what they think, then we are next. BUT no one should be trying to stir up a mob to violence.

He was stupid to post such dribble on his website. This guy isn't a conservative, he's a neo-nazi. There's no room for him in the conservative establishment.
