Encourage Suicide, not Free Speech

realsilly writes "As documented from the Associated Press, according to a judge in FARIBAULT, Minnesota, encouraging suicide is not protected under Free Speech. A nurse performed a search on the internet for depressed people and engaged with 2 individual, a man and a woman and encouraged them to kill themselves. He's been found guilty of aiding their suicides. The defendant's lawyer argued that the two were already considering suicide before the defendant engaged with them.

This is certainly a moral dilemma for people who don't believe in suicide. I perceive this to be Free Speech in it's most basic form even if it is not nice dialog. What do other Slashdot readers think or feel about this trial's results."
