Spike Lee sued for tweeting the wrong address in trying to get people to attack George Zimmerman

What was Spike Lee's intent when he tweeted: “I don’t give a f— what you think kill that Bitch. HERE GO HIS ADDRESS, LET THE HUNGER GAMES BEGIN”?  Encouraging violence against anyone, particularly a completely innocent party is very scary.  From Variety:
Spike Lee has been sued by an elderly couple in Florida, whose address he incorrectly identified as the home of Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman, according to court documents obtained by the Smoking Gun
The suit claims the “Do the Right Thing” director tweeted out the Florida address along with George Zimmerman’s name in March 2012 to his 240,000-plus Twitter followers. 
“While defendant intended to post the home address of George Zimmerman, he actually posted the address of plaintiffs Elaine McClain and David McClain,” the complaint reads. 
“I don’t give a f— what you think kill that Bitch,” one Spike Lee follower wrote. “HERE GO HIS ADDRESS, LET THE HUNGER GAMES BEGIN.” . . .
The couple whose address was given out are suing for "in excess" of $15,000 in damages.

Good, I hope they destroy him in court. Doing things like that which could potentially lead to a crime or crimes should be punishable. He should be held to account.

So... where are the criminal charges against Spike Lee in this case? You publicly ask folks to commit a murder, yet no arrest or trial occurs?

If this was done by a non white, would the result be the same?
