guess any forum users in AZ should pack it up... lol


The amendments made to H.B. 2549 would make just about any annoying, harassing or offensive online comment, reply or message illegal in the state of Arizona. In other words, the time-honored vocation of Internet trolling would become a criminal offense -- a class 1 misdemeanor -- punishable by up to a $250,000 fine and 6 months in jail.

I'm guessing you don't need knowledge of the constitution to write a bill.

Nothing about the strip search ruling is wrong.

People are butthurt about nothing.

SCOTUS just ruled that it's not a 4th amendment violation for the police to conduct strip searches before prisoners/inmates are introduced to a general population.

This happens at EVERY jail. Has been for decades. Why the fuck wouldn't you strip search someone that could potentially be carrying a razor blade or drugs on them?

People are making it out to be like cops can strip search you after running a stop sign.

Not the case.

Looks like they're amending a current law aimed at stopping harassment via telephone to cover all forms of communication?
I don't see the big deal.

That's probably the intention. However, bills like these(if passed), are so vague it could be used for anything.
