New York man, 35, who was charged for offering Twitter users $500 to kill ICE agents is ACQUITTED by federal jury because his tweet is ‘protected speech’ under the First Amendment

Poor Little Pussy-Assed Brandon Ziobrowski,
He Had a Tough Year 
After He Solicited The Murder of ICE Agents
A man who tweeted that he would pay $500 to anyone who would kill a federal immigration officer was acquitted by a jury on Friday in a case that questioned whether social media threats were protected by free speech. 
Brandon Ziobrowski, 35, of New York City was cleared by a federal jury of using interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat after a week of testimony at the US District Court in Boston. If convicted, Ziobrowski faced up to five years in jail and a potential 250,000 fine. 
Ziobrowski said he was relieved the ordeal was over after the verdict was presented in court. ‘It seemed like the right verdict. It’s been a horrible year. I’m glad its over,’ he said as he walked out of court with his family and lawyer.
