Re: “America must chill the rhetoric of political rage” (editorial, 1-14).
There have been multiple tweets on the Internet wishing death for Sarah Palin: “Ugh! All the wrong people get shot. Why can’t this kind of thing happen at a Sarah Palin event?”
That tweet is the one that definitely bothered me the most. Why would somebody say such a thing? Encouraging people to murder somebody is just as bad as murdering them yourself.
We can’t make such comments illegal due to freedom of speech, but we should find a way to deter people from spreading such hate messages. …
