Woman posts "LOL" on FB and they throw her in JAIL!!!
[link to blog.sfgate.com]

this woman sounds like a real asshole.
but to be arrested for mocking something on fb seems pretty outlandish to me.

"A Kentucky woman received jail time after posting a Facebook comment mocking a DUI charge, Patrick Jones reports.

Paula Asher was allegedly drinking and driving when she side-swiped another vehicle and was arrested. She later posted the following comment on Facebook: “My dumb (expletive) got a DUI and hit a car LOL.”

A judge ordered her to take down her Facebook page, and when Asher did not comply, she was held in contempt of court and ordered to spend two days in jail."

that cannot be legal to arrest someone for saying that???

She was arrested for drinking and driving. She hit another car while intoxicated.

The judge ordered that she take down her facebook page as part of her probation (this part, I am at odds with) and she left it open and typed that.

She was in contempt of court for violating a court order. She could have challenged it before and did not and then disobeyed.

I hate prohibition of the first amendment but this is not the landmark case. She blatantly disobeyed after having the chance to disagree with the rule.

I assure you, she was an idiot and the judge was not a Muslim trying to ban free speech.

Re: Woman posts "LOL" on FB and they throw her in JAIL!!!
technically she wasn't arrested for her facebook content, but failing to comply with a legal order.

the judge, like many others, thinks he is the law. Ego and such.

Is it wrong? fuck yes. Is it "legal"? sadly yeah

ACLU should get involved as there is no law against being a redneck, despite the judges disdain for rednecks.

She didn't comply with an unlawful order. The judge has no right to order anyone to remove this kind of speech.

He could use it as a reason to give her the maximum sentence for the DUI. Because it's proof that she didn't feel sorry for her actions.

I am as big of a proponent of freedom of speech as there is but you guys need to actually read the court documents before jumping to conclusions.

This is not what it is being made out to be.

Pretend you are rightfully convicted of selling crack. Part of your probation states that you can't advertise that you are "holding" to anyone in any fashion.

You tweet, "Hey guys, I just loaded up on CRACKing HTML code and I have plenty of it to go 'round."

This is tantamount to what she did regarding free speech.

There was a story in the local paper here a month or so ago, seems some guy was trying to lure a young girl for a sexual encounter. Some facebook software flagged his conversation as suspicious and he was reported to authorities and arrested.

Now, obviously trying to lure kids for sex is wrong, but for anyone who thinks facebook isn't watching everything you say and do within its confines...THINK AGAIN.

She hit a car ( with 4 teenagers in it ) and fled the scene.

When arrested she was found to be intoxicated and in possession of narcotics.


While awaiting trial she made several insulting remarks about the witnesses ( the four teenagers she hit) and bragged repeatedly about how mcuh she drinks on FB

For reasons i cant figure out the judge went easy on her , All she had to do was attend rehab and DELETE her FB account as a condition of her release.

She never deleted her account ( kept using it ) so the judge threw her ass in jail for a few days.

Amazing, I was just talking to my wife (High School Principal) about the very same kinds of posts by a teacher. I advised her that teachers are protected constitutionally, like everyone else, and have a right to post rude comments about work and there was nothing they could do about rude and uncomfortable comments.

What if her statement didn't include the 'LOL' ... rolleyes haha, but in all seriousness.. she's an idiot for posting that to begin with. First off, what would compel you to do it? Like I'd be bragging to everyone I knew that I got sauced and rammed a car.. wtf?

I get that she failed to comply with a court order, but damn. Really ridiculous.
