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.
 Quoting: Herman The Kid


But she is not selling an illegal substance. She is simply making a statement, however tasteless it may be.

I definitely think this is a violation of her right to free speech.

Oh....what was that? Free Speech? Oh never mind. Go back to sleep, it doesn't matter.
 Quoting: ExoPoliChick


I usually think the same thing and you have no idea how many hours of my life I've spent fighting this but I am sure, she is in the wrong on this one-I am certainly not "asleep."

Oh no I didn't mean you, I was generalizing about the snoozing.

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 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.

Already seen this story, it's ridiculous and a violation of freedom of speech on a large scale. I don't see where a judge has the right to force someone to delete their Facebook account, maybe the post if that was the problem but not the account. Sounds like the judge was a power hungry prick.

Free speech my ass. The woman is a complete scum queen. Sounds like she's a drunk, has no remorse, and too stupid to take advantage of an opportunity to make amends and go to treatment. I'm sure her attitude will be taken into consideration. I hope he throws the book at her. She's a menace, and should be off the street.

more like refusing a bail condition,
which can be varied widely for individual cases.

as per usual here, the thread title is wrong and indicitave of weak material


the linked article says she did 48hrs jail time for failing to comply when ordered to remove the comment, after a dui, not for posting 'LOL' as op wishes you to think.


good example of how religions work and peoples thoughts are manipulated, so the negative aspect of an obvious bullshit thread affecting others on the board is somewhat offset by the exposure of op's rather feeble attempts at having you believe want they want you to.

The judge was in error. He clearly overstepped his legal authority.

He infringed on the woman's constitutional right to free speech by demanding she take down her facebook page as part of the terms of her probation.

She was within her rights to fail to comply with a legal order that is unconstitutional.

She should engage the ACLU to sue the county state, or federal court system (whichever the case may be) and the judge personally for having abridged her civil rights (her constitutional right to free speech).

No, this is not legal "in Kentucky".

This is how it goes. She got a DUI,could have been charged with fleeing the scene,reckless endangerment. The court gave a break by not jailing her for months to a year but the court demands conditions such as an acknowledgement that she fucked up and show of remorse. Her answer was to say fuck you ,I do what I want.

Re: Woman posts "LOL" on FB and they throw her in JAIL!!!
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.

I could understand (And not agree with) some judge being rather senile and making her take her facebook page down for posting that, which sounds like it should be legal.
