25 years for being annoying! Good grief, I’m glad I live in the UK or I’d be screwed 🙂

Xanthippa's Chamberpot

Many legislators fail to understand the impact of the laws that they pass – but this takes the cake.

A bill has passed in Arizona – and only awaits the governor’s signature to become a law – which would punish trolling on the internet by 25 years in jail:

‘ The legislature recently passed House Bill 2549,which uses broad language that could turn a troublingly large swath of online chatter into a class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by up to 25 years in jail. It reads:

“It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use any electronic or digital device and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.” ‘

Really?

What were they thinking!!!
