    Wow, I'm shocked that the Ninth Court of Appeals would find in favor of the Defendant in this case; especially considering he dropped the N-Bomb on more than one occasion.

    3 biggest things when this happens are 1. Individual intended statements to be a threat. 2. He has the means to carry out the threat (both logistical means and equipment), and 3. The audience to which statements were made to and if they were perceived to be a legitimate threat or crazy and angry rants made out of frustration.

    Shaddup until it actually happens.

    When some nut goes after him or even threatens him, it'll be a ball.

    The only thing that shocks me about this situation is A, he has to appeal, and B, there was a justice who voted against an obviously protected 1st Amendment issue.
