Twitter users call for the arrest and murder of Terry Jones

In the wake of yesterday’s deadly outburst in Libya, some Twitter users are demanding justice.

Mind you, they don’t want any action to be taken against the vicious murderers who ruthlessly killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other Americans.

No, these Twitter users are calling for action against Terry Jones, a private U.S. citizen who — horror of horrors! — praised a crappy anti-Muslim movie. The nerve!

Like Mike Barnicle and UPenn professor Anthea Butler, these Twitter users don’t seem particularly enamored of that little thing called the First Amendment. It’s just a technicality, you see.

They are certain Jones must be guilty of a crime. Or something. So arrest him at once!

But, really, why bother with a trial? If it’s OK to ignore Jones’ basic constitutional rights, why not carry the lynch-mob mentality to its logical conclusion?
