    Suppose one starts a blog and name it 'Border Bullies', and writes that the reason why there were no signs warning that this is a border could be because border patrol sets traps for innocent people so they can lock them up to prove they're doing their job. And the blog writes that border patrol acted like bullies and should be locked up themselves.

    Is such a blog in risk of a lawsuit for slander?

    No, slander relates to the spoken word.

    Libel relates to the written word.

    However, you're posting from the freedom loving country of Israel.

    This website discusses the laws of the recently reborn, nationalist, sovereign nation of the United States of America, its territories, and possessions.

    You might wish to discuss your query with one of the many talented and licensed attorneys in Israel.

    Which is what you were told three years ago, before the United States of America was reborn.

    can an abused minor be detained in a police holding cell?
