Harold Charles Turner, of North Bergen, also known as Hal Turner, was arrested by State Capitol Police for inciting injury.
The arrest came the day after his blog alluded to using guns against Sen. Andrew J. McDonald, D-Stamford, and Rep. Michael P. Lawlor, D-East Haven, co-chairmen of the Judiciary Committee, and Thomas K. Jones, enforcement officer for the Office of State Ethics.
Turner, 47, was booked in New Jersey, pending extradition to Connecticut.
I didn’t know anything about this guy before hearing of his arrest. It looks like he spoke of or wrote of violence against government officials. OK, That’s not good. But we had 8 years of threats against W and the Republicans, so -what’s the difference? Where is the line drawn? And exactly what constitutes threats or hate speech? We know the old rules are out and the new rules are in - whatever they are. The only thing we can be sure of is that liberals can get away with just about anything and conservatives need to be very, very careful.
