The United States is still trying to catch up with all of the assorted behaviors that have developed and changed with the advent of the internet. Many have created some sort of “cyberstalking” law in an attempt to combat the popular negative communications that occur on the internet, often involving minor children.
As you should know by now, anytime a new law comes out advertising security in exchange for your rights, you should be leery. I write a good deal about DWIs in Louisiana, hwoever, are tougher laws against drunk driving making things better for society?
I don’t condone drug use under the law today, and I CERTAINLY do not condone theft, but if you ever mix the two, DO NOT CALL THE POLICE. I’m sure this very nice lady thought she was just protecting her rights and property in doing so:
Mardi Gras arrives early this year on Tuesday, February 12, 2013.

The first step is an arrest.
