Charlie Hebdo and Their Offensive Cartoons

When you are publishing satire knowing that what you publish will lead to deaths, perhaps many, are you being irresponsible? Are you a murderer? Perhaps this is a topic we should discuss!

What if you are a cartoonist, and you know that someone will die if you publish a certain type of cartoon? What if the person who will die is a Muslim rioter in Indonesia? What if that person is a Muslim Indonesian police officer trying to defend the Danish Embassy? What if you know that the person who will die is a police officer doing her job in Paris, or a French soldier defending the Louvre? Is it then defensible free speech, or is it intentional murder for entertainment?
