There Oughta Be a Law...Oh, Wait...There Is a Law

Cornell Law Library
Deserving of much reposting, this heads-up from The PJ Tatler about a lil' ol' section of the U.S. Code, namely:  Title 18Part IChapter 13 › § 241:
The story about the SWATTING and intimidation is shocking.  It might also be illegal.
18 USC 241 prohibits intimidation against Americans for exercising free speech rights.  The statute says:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
And there's more, way more, to be learned about "18 USC § 241 - Conspiracy against rights" at the Legal Information Institute at the Cornell University Law School.
