The idea that we're locking people up for ranting on Facebook is abhorrent to me. People have a right to their opinions. If he was actively calling for people to start shooting soldiers that would be different, but this is clearly not a direct call to arms, it's an emotional rant.
The idea that a person can be locked up for "offensive" speech is frankly offensive to _me_. The answer to offensive speech is _more_ speech, not preventing people from expressing themselves in the first place.
