GOP speakers lead chants of "Lock her up!" at RNC. Did they cross a line? | The Tylt
Several speakers, most notably Lieut. Gen. Michael Flynn, led the Republican National Convention audience in chants of "Lock her up!" (in reference to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton).
Did the RNC speakers cross a line? Is "Lock her up" kinda funny—or kinda scary?
Many think the chant is hilarious (and much deserved by its target) while other political observers are aghast, calling it extreme, uncivil, and over the line. What do you think? #TooFarGOP? Or #OnPointGOP?

"Lock her up!" ... Really playing with fire with top speakers leading these "lock her up" chants. This is not normal stuff.— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) July 19, 2016
Never watched a convention premised on throwing the other candidate in prison before outside of former Soviet Union.— Michael Weiss (@michaeldweiss) July 19, 2016
