Reply To: NARSOL to SCOTUS: End social media bans


This reminds me, several years ago I had a myspace page. I connected with an old friend from high school. We exchanged a few nice and happy messages, then one day he blocked me with no explaination. The next day a state trooper showed up and told me I had to close my myspace page, even though there was no law on that at the time. Some friend.

See that is another example of how law enforcement makes up the rules. This happened before “unique identifier” reporting was required and before some states outright banned SOs from social media. It wasn’t even in myspace’s policy at the time. And yet this VA State Trooper who handled the SO checks in that area thought he had grounds to arrest me if I didn’t close my page immediately.
