In a shocking decision in a case against a Houston couple, a judge ruled that animal snuff, or ‘crush’ films, are protected by the First Amendment.
Animal lovers and decent human beings in general are appalled and disgusted that this ruling allows people to film animal torture, which might otherwise be a crime, as long as it is called ‘art.'”
Should films depicting the death of animals be considered art? Would limitations, even ones most people find objectionable, stifle artistic expression?
