Yo.

I don't know; I'm kinda torn on the issue myself, altho I DO think that 14yrs for the charge of distributing objectionable material (of this type) is a bit much IMNSHO (then again, I think its still part of an active investigaton so maybe that has something to do w/it).

Yeah, but it doesn't say that. The charge is just objectionable material.

I only meant the article does not say they are being charged with interfering with an ongoing investigation. The only charge listed is publishing objectionable material.

Yo.

ahhh, I see the issue; I *wasn't* saying they were doing that, but merely commenting on the fact that said investigation was still on-going......

I don't know whether this falls under "speech. And it was certainly a shitty thing to do. But PRISON? And a fine of $22k?
