Mama Bear Better Stay Out of Australia

While I'm not a fan of Julian Assange, I despise Sarah Palin even more.  So I got a warm fuzzy over this statement from Robert Stary, Assange's lawyer:

"On her Facebook page, Palin suggests that Assange should be 'pursued with the same urgency as al-Qaida and Taliban leaders.'

 I suggest you leave your gun at home for this one, Sarah.

"Anyone who incites others to commit violence against his client, even outside Australia, Stary says, is violating Australian law, and can be held accountable for it.

"'Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that's what we intend to do,' Stary said."

Thank goodness SOMEONE knows the difference between freedom of speech and potentially damaging hate-mongering.
