U.S., freedom of speech and the arrest of the anti-Islam video producer

Only a few days after Obama’s speech at the UN general assembly and his unambiguous defence of freedom of speech as a constitutional right, the producer of the anti-Islam video is arrested for other charges that have nothing to do with the content of the video. The U.S. has a long tradition of covering up for what are really political prisoners by charging them with other crimes. The American state might protect freedom of speech, the only problem is you might be arrested for something else.
