The guy is a moron, rap music is shit for idiots, and the message of the song in particular is as heinous as it is stupid.
But it's not a crime.
If we're going to put this anus in jail for writing a song about killing cops, then we also have to put all the other rap "artists" in jail for their songs about killing people and beating up women and dealing (or doing) drugs. In fact, we probably ought to think about jailing people who make movies simulating such crimes, too, just to be on the safe side. And people who write the stuff, too.
Unfortunately for totalitarian pricks (such as the officers of the Polk County Sheriff's office), we in the United States have this little thing called "freedom of expression" which is guaranteed to us by the first amendment to the US Constitution. It means we can say whatever the hell we want to. There are certain limits to this freedom which have been found to be necessary and just, but some guy "singing" a "song" about how he wants to kill policement is not subject to those reasonable limitations.
And so this guy should not only be released from jail, but should also receive a complete pardon and be compensated for his arrest and time spent in jail.
Even though his "art" is shit.

Obama birth certificate issue in detail. It actually starts with a discussion of Obama's off-and-on-again connection with islam, then segues into the nationality issue.
It's a good read. It details all the lies Obama tells about himself in order to igratiate himself to his audience.
It also points up the total willful blindness of the media. Do you think that if George Bush tried to make up anything about his past to make a connection with audience that the press would have let it slide, just ignored an outright lie? Don't make me laugh.
How many Americans know, for example, that as a sitting U.S. senator in 2006, Obama interfered in a Kenyan election, publicly ripping the incumbent government (a U.S. ally) for corruption while he was its guest and barnstorming with his preferred candidate: a Marxist now known to have made a secret agreement with Islamists to convert Kenya to sharia law, and whose supporters, upon losing the election, committed murder and mayhem, displacing thousands of Kenyans and plunging their country into utter chaos?I certainly didn't know that. But guess what? It doesn't surprise me. Particularly not from here, about 6 months into Obama's 4-year term.
Why don’t the media — the watchdog legions who trekked to Sarah Palin’s Alaska hometown to scour for every kernel of gossip, and who were so desperate for Bush dirt that they ran with palpably forged military records — want to dig into Obama’s background?Why do you think? It's because Obama is a liberal Democrat and so are they. That's what it's all about, and you know it.
Count the minutes until 2012, baby. I know I will.

Chore day: first up, drain the hot water heater. The water coming out is nasty; then again it hasn't been done since before 2007. Yeesh.
Next, cut the grass.
Tomorrow, look for work and order a set of piston rings. *sigh*
