Had it happen. Many times.

Welcome to the fucking internet, Newfriend.

If I had a police team at my disposal, it would still be an unconstitutional, illegal, and fucking asinine abuse of power to send them to trash some dude's house for posting under my screen name.

If I did that as a fucking mayor, I would expected to be charged, thrown from office, tarred, and feathered, and deserve it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56796188


It wasn't a screen name. It was a real name ... Someone's real identity and a real position as a government officer....someone's real reputation on the line... Really you need to get your facts straight before posting a thread... You don't read the articles you yourself post... And when people point out where you are mistaken you ignore it and just try a different a different angle ... The facts of the matter are that no one should ever be victimized like this and people who do things like this should be held accountable ... We cannot have people misrepresenting themselves as government officers and people should not live in fear of being impersonated and having to deal with the fallout ...as far as your childish vulgar "welcome to the Internet" statement that's just ridiculous... It is even more important that there are clearly defined laws so that people can easily tell what's real and what's bogus...the Internet is playing a bigger role in all areas of life and no one should be allowed to assume the identity of another on it and wreak havoc...

Listen you pissant, that was my first post in this thread.

I didn't write the article. Nor have I addressed you at any point.

So why do you think we have established a rhetoric together?

I will not take shit from some idiot who doesn't hit enter between sentences and who thinks all ACs are the same person.

They both deserve persecution. Arguing which is more in the wrong is fucking irrelevant and detracts from the thread.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56796188


Wow resorting to verbal abuse ... Studies have shown that people who resort to verbal abuse and/ or profanity have lower IQ's than the average person... The reason they do it is because they have problems with ther logic and critical thinking skills ... Most often they also suffer with impulse control disorder... So when they feel they cannot make a point intelligently or feel their arguments are weak or invalid they cannot help but resort to being verbally abusive and or the use of profanities... Just a heads up...as for trying to tell people that they must put a line between each sentence ... Lol... You must suffer from learning disabilities as well often associated with the problems listed above... I do not think all AC's are the same person don't know where you got that from... You post a thread ... people will respond...If I were you I'd stop worrying about this guy and focus on the issues you seen to have .. There is a lot that can be done for them and it would greatly improve the quality of your life...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57073944


Wow resorting to nonexistent studies implying I have a low IQ?

You sure took the high road there.

Actually, I feel I articulate my opinions and arguments perfectly well, despite the addition of profanity, which I use for both emphasis and to project my general disdain for you and your like in the otherwise expressionless medium of text.

But go ahead, accuse me of using a straw man argument, as a straw man argument. You filthy illiterate hypocrite.

Also, it is nonsensical and asinine to make a forum post about how my time can be better spent than making forum posts.

TL;DR: Judge deserves to be persecuted, impersonator deserves to be persecuted to a lesser extent and be compensated for all damages to his property, and the Greek AC above is an idiot. I make all three points with equal conviction.

It is illegal to falsely represent yourself as another... Called identity theft... It is also illegal to falsely represent yourself as an officer of the government. (Mayor)

Ha! just as I suspected on instinct alone...

...the perpetrator WAS democratic part trash!

Well at least all you fellow travelers have been ID'd...

...in case anyone's keeping track.

How typical to now try and spin this slander as the Republican Mayors fault for not having a sense of humor about his name being maliciously linked to a sex and drug culture.

Nice try, Ardis wrote a character reference for a big time coke dealer caught with serious weight.


And there is plenty of stories which show the taint and corruption of the police to keep bumping this all week.


And at least of those judges is an appointee, who lost several elections and yet was appointed as judge. If you can't even win a spring rigged election, you are a loser.

...and the spin continues.

This same lack of responsibility, moral spine, and ethics brought us the recent politically vindictive IRS investigations.

What further injustice, outrage or abomination is next?

Wonder if the cokehead mayor will resign this week? Or the corrupt chieftain? Or the judge that signed the warrant?

Well if you read any of it you would know it was labeled as "parody".

It's very disturbing when people see nothing wrong with sending a swat in for this.


So why isn't the kid even charged with a misdemeanor for this alleged twitter crime? Huh?
 Quoting: Boris the Cat



The account was not labeled as parody when opened... It was labeled parody later ... Probably as an attempt to avoid prosecution once they started worrying about what they were doing... You should read the articles you post..

Peoria Police Chief Steve Settingsgaard said officers were investigating the creator of the Twitter account for false personation of a public official. The offense is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2,500 and up to a year in jail.
The @Peoriamayor account began in late February or early March with a photo of Ardis and a bio that stated he enjoyed serving the city and included his city email address.
The content of tweets, or entries on the account, ranged from ambiguous to offensive, with repeat references to sex and drugs ó and comparisons of Ardis to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as Fordís drug use while in office became public.
By about March 10, the bio of the Twitter account was changed to indicate it was a parody account.
Settingsgaard, however, said the intent of the account was not clearly satirical.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57073944



Swat for a misdemeanor?

You a sick and depraved person to think that is acceptable.


And again, why isn't he charged with it? Huh?
 Quoting: Boris the Cat


You're the sick and depraved one if you think opening false accounts under another's NAME , sending incriminating tweets and falsely representing that it's a government officer is the one sending out those tweets is ok... Something wrong with you... As far as charges they're coming... He hasn't been charged yet ...once they decide on the actual charges and who exactly is responsible for what he'll be charged.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 57073944




Uh no, just like I said there will be no twitter charges.


"No charges will be filed against the people who created a Twitter account which cast Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis in a negative light, said the countyís top prosecutor.
A review of state law indicates the account holders of now-shutdown Twitter account, @peoriamayor, didnít break the law because the actual crime alleged, ďfalse personation of a public official,Ē has to be done in person, not over the Internet or other electronic media, said Stateís Attorney Jerry Brady."

I see the fat cunts at Gatehouse Media are gloating over the cheiftan leaving, likely won't hear much about corruption now. Unless there is another agenda to push.

Wonder what Gatehouse staff receives in exchange for the agenda pushing drivel shit they print?
