Yes, I understand punishment, however, punishment cannot or at least should not infringe on certain Amendment Rights that parolees have, even if its limited. Things have to be restricted and has to be reasonably related, however, an all out blanket restriction can be challenged. Such as a ban on public library without offering alternatives.
The ban on ALL internet gaming activities is an outright restriction on First Amendment activities. Your restrictions on the outside should not equal restrictions on the inside.
I know in time things are lessoned. Anyway, its just the possibility that a law will be proposed to outright BAN all games whether you are on parole or not is troubling.

BTW – thank the moderators for the posting. I have an outdated mobile that I have little choice in using.
