Watch What You Say: Trash Talkers Earn More Freedom To Make Empty Threats In Kansas

Decent people don't go around trying to scare others with angry words and, sadly, local courts were forced to clean up legislation that threatened constitutionally protected free speech.

The cases considered were among low-rent locals that didn't aspire to any political motive but simply intended to terrify adversaries and family members . . . Check the legal cleanup and just a bit of relief for scumbag big talkers:

Court strikes down part of Kansas law regarding threats

TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas legislators went too far by criminalizing violent language not backed up by an intent to act, the state's highest court ruled Friday in striking down part of a law that it says violates free speech rights.

A ray of sunlight in a butt-hurt wussification society.

Now, just don't let your 12 year old daughters make a bang, bang finger gesture at anyone.
