"unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity."

Then what exactly would constitute doing this lawfully?

There were some frighteningly stupid students in Sherwood, OR that showed me a video from their "fight club" and happily answered all my questions. What's a sub going to do about it, right? I called the SRO while they were still in class. Apparently stealing mom's xanex to combat the existential pain of being white in a rich suburb wasn't enough.

Jesus, Florida, do you even law? Did every DA in Florida graduate fro Oral Roberts University School of Law?

She might have gotten away with it but she broke the second rule as well.

Apparently, they moved to Louisiana.

This is some crazy law LA has. The statute.

It seems the intent of it is to discourage glorifying your criminal activities.  As the article says, an element of the crime is that the poster of the video has to be a principal or an accessory of the crime which (without knowing all the facts) does not seem to apply here.

As I said, this is some crazy LA law.  I guess the state does not know how many idiots get convicted because they feel the need to post their crimes online.

"The police chief said he isn't worried about a lawsuit.
"Anybody can sue anybody for anything these days," Leger said. "Is it something that concerns me? No. Is it something that can happen? Yes.

"And even if she does and she wins it's no skin off my nose, I won't be held responsible or lose any money over it so sue away!"

It's been my experience that the more letters you add to the name "Megan", the more insane they are.  If I ever meet a Megan that's spelled with twenty-three j's and an Umlaut, I'm just going to douse myself in gasoline and set myself on fire with a road flare.

Then it would be Becky, not Megan, silly

Yes, this deserves the SAD tag because she got arrested unlawfully.
 
2019-02-22 03:07:06 AM  
Pretty outrageous that she was arrested for this. All judgment about a 32 year old mom of a high school student, who thinks posting videos of high school fights is cool, aside...

This.
Or liveleak.
FTA:
"Maegan Adkins-Barras, 32, of Broussard, was booked with unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity."

I don't see them going afternoon those guys any time soon.

/I think the intent of the law isn't to stop idjits from harrasing/harming people for internet clicks. We are already have laws for those, just throw the book at them

Around here, the schools hassle anybody and everybody that reveal how bad it's gotten.  They've tried banning electronics, blocking unlimited access to WiFi, things like that, but kids and parents alike can see the crap that goes on.

I'm pretty sure I would have been charged under this a few years back.  My kid was being bullied, so we upped his data to unlimited for a little while.  He was then told to use his phone like you see in some police brutality complaints.  It took posting a day in the life of special needs kid to get some serious attention from the school board.

Maybe this Mom was tired of hearing about the school not doing anything about brawls in the halls.

If they charge a kid with enough money that law won't stand up.

This is one of the rare articles that only has the school's perspective rather than just the parent's.

I was wondering the mother's motivation for posting the video. While posting because "her Der that's furnee' isn't on heard of, it's also possible she was doing it to bring to light an issue which the administration has their heads' in the sand about.

A little background would be nice, Mr." journalist".

Good for you, and your kid.  You wouldn't have been arrested, ideally; the problem here sounds like the cop misunderstanding the law.

Although the law itself seems dumb too...you WANT criminals posting their shiat online, makes it easier to arrest them :)

Learning background costs money.

How much did you pay for the article?  Because I paid zero.

Yep. That's the classic 'I want to speak to the manager' look.

Certainly not filming police law breaking, that's for sure.

Oh, yes it is...ad money pays for reporters and editors and fact-checkers, and ad money has been in the toilet since the internet spun up.
