Is Donald Trump criminally responsible for inciting violence at his political rallies?


There is a well-established legal definition of incitement to violence, and it involves three parts (1) that the person is directly being encouraged (or "incited") to commit some act of violence, and (2) there is a clear and present danger that the person will commit the act, and (3) that the person does, in fact, commit the act. The image does not show a sucker punch but an elbow the 78 year old man who walked from middle of the seating to get to the aisle and elbowed in the face a peaceful protester. A move that is not even allowed in MMA.

    Culture of fear (or climate of fear) is the concept that people may incite fear in the general public to achieve political goals. Tell them they are attacked, denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country to danger.

    If you're not a liberal, you don't have free speech. You're automatically racist and a bigot. Sad.

    He may be saying inflammatory things, but one chooses how one reacts to it.

    I said the same thing about Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. And i say yes. He's got a lot of influence and as he said, his people follow him no matter what. So when he says punch em in the face, if you hurt them I'll pay your lawyers fee, he is inviting.

    Never make negative comments or spread rumors about anyone. It depreciates their reputation and yours.

    Peaceful? It didn't look peaceful on my the video I saw. Please stop with this peaceful protest bs. I'm tired of liberal jerks being defended for being, well, jerks.
