A Sense of Proportion

Quick link to establish what I’m talking about: here

I don’t know which offends me more – Travis Corcoran making such a tasteless comment, Brian Clevinger freaking out about it and cutting off all business ties, or Clevinger’s ‘comedic’ conceptual manging of what anarchocapitalism means.

To make matters even worse, the police became involved, interpreting Corcoran’s online remark as a potential threat, confiscating his firearms, and beginning proceedings to possibly revoke his license.

While I would agree that threats against people’s lives need to be taken seriously, I really don’t see how Corcoran’s inanity constitutes a valid and credible threat.
