83-year-old sentenced for killing roommate, 94

Was this really necessary?

SANTA ANA – An Orange County judge Friday sentenced to lifetime probation an 83-year-old man who pleaded guilty to killing a 94-year-old rehabilitation-center roommate.

Remarking that justice in this case is imperfect, Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals suspended the sentence of 16 years in state prison for William Leo McDougall, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in August in a negotiated settlement with prosecutors.

Gawker.com Refuses To Remove #HulkHogan Sex Video From Site, Uses First Amendment As Defense

In an article, “A Judge Told Us to Take Down Our Hulk Hogan Sex Tape Post. We Won’t. “ Gawker.com tells the story of the legal battle that ensued after the website posted the video and descriptive “transcript” of Hulk Hogan, a 49 year old former WWE Champion, and his sexual encounter with his bestfriend’s wife. Apparently, yesterday the Hon. Pamela A.M. Campbell, a circuit court judge in Pinellas County, Fla. ordered them to remove the video and post from Gawker.com‘s website. They now refuse.

I was intrigued. (not in the video, that just sounds gross so a visual presentation would probably be unbearable.) Gawker.com is citing the First Amendment as it’s reason for their disobedience. I love Constitutional Law. Partly, because it is the origin of all law of the land. Mostly, due to the essence of the document that it is considered a blank canvas for interpretation of established law and sculpting of new law.

Quoted from the article at Gawker.com here is why they refuse to comply with the order:

“[The] Constitution does unambiguously accord us the right to publish true things about public figures. And Campbell’s order requiring us to take down not only a very brief, highly edited video excerpt from a 30-minute Hulk Hogan fucking session but also a lengthy written account from someone who had watched the entirety of that fucking session, is risible and contemptuous of centuries of First Amendment jurisprudence.”

Gawker.com goes on to state that the only reason that the Hulk wants the post removed is due to personal taste and nothing more. It was an issue with interpretation of the video being considered free “speech” since it is a recording and not an actual speech. However, counsel for Hulk wanted the entire post removed, not just the tape.

Despite her misapprehension that the issue at hand was “only about the tape,” Campbell has seen clear to order us to disappear a 1,400-word article—words composed and published by Gawker Media editorial employees—simply because Hulk Hogan didn’t like it.

I for one am proud of Gawker.com any person (or website) that is defending their rights under the Constitution is alright with me. Stand up for your rights, just be careful guys.
