Freedom of Speech

No arrest should be made over a remark. The staff/security at Home Depot should’ve asked those 3 men to leave. Yes it’s freedom of speech, but it’s not freedom from punishment of speech. You can still get in some sort of trouble for harassing/threatening someone on the phone.

LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis condemned the bullies’ actions and made clear that the coronavirus is not something residents of LA should be worrying about, blaming the spread of misinformation.

“I am concerned because, as someone who is also of immigrant background, I know what it means to face discrimination and racial profiling,” Solis said at the press conference, held in downtown Los Angeles.

“We need to say that there needs to be a rational discussion about what’s happening,” Solis continued. “There’s only one case in L.A. County that we know of … that person is being quarantined. And right now, we need to do everything to reaffirm our support to the [Asian Pacific Islander] community.”
