Arrest Of Twitter User Could
Have Serious Implications For
The World Of Internet Trolling

Daily Caller, by Alex Pfeiffer

John Rivello was arrested Friday months after he allegedly sent a tweet that caused journalist Kurt Eichenwald to suffer a seizure. This arrest appears to be the first of its kind and presents serious implications for the world of internet trolling, which seeks to annoy fellow users. Eichenwald’s attorney Steven Lieberman and cyber jurisprudence expert Peter Stephenson told The Daily Caller Sunday they are unaware of any similar cases where an internet message or posting causing bodily harm and resulted in an arrest. Kevin Fu, a computer scientist at the University of Michigan, told The Washington Post, “This is a

Comments:
While I certainly don´t condone what that jerk did to Eichenwald, this is extremely concerning what impact it would have on the Internet. Why didn´t Eichenwald just avoid Twitter? I guess that´s too obvious. When will they start coming after people who make ´offensive´ comments? As insane as those on the college campuses are and the rest of those on the left that´s sure not a stretch to think of that.

Contd. The interview Eichenwald did with Tucker Carlson was bizarre, and that´s an understatement. Link below. He doesn´t seem to stable to begin with. I don´t know if that´s just who he is or if it´s part of his affliction. We will never know. But I do know that this sets a very dangerous precedent.

Twitter keeps a watch list of offensive (a subjective term) tweeters who may go too far politically, or personally, and a few have been banned. This is a unique case as far as I know, and can indeed have dangerous repercussions for the net.

Only one step away from arresting conservatives for online statements that cause emotional suffering to snowflakes. So glad Hillary lost!

Maybe the rest of you are right that this is an assault on free speech, but I don´t think sending flashing lights with the stated purpose of causing a fatal seizure are any kind of free speech.
This was designed to cause physical injury not mere insult.

I think that Kurt guy is so strange. Did it really trigger a seizure? Do they have proof?
Only 3% of the population, may have this photosensitive form of the condition, and flickering computer lights can cause it.
I have serious doubts about this.

This whole thing tears me. All over the net we see trolls, who post what they do for no other purpose than the sick joy of causing people pain. We see cyber stalkers browbeating people, making fake profiles in their names and making their lives a living hell. They have driven some to suicide.
Yet. most of us here would agree that the government should not be interfering with anyone´s speech. Here at LDot, most of us post under pseudonyms so we are not harassed in real life for our opinions. Others just lurk, and some avoid the net entirely. The truth is, to post any sort of opinion is to invite very nasty retaliation. I have a liberal friend (one of my few left) that was trolled by a supposed conservative on her twitter. The things he called her and said were so vile I wont even repeat it with euphemisms. It was totally uncalled for and the words of a coward.
So whats the answer? These animals should not do these things and there should be a penalty. Should we just wait for karma to catch up? It seems the only constitutional answer.

By itself, sending a gif through twitter (or trolling with insults) sounds like protected speech.

Sending a strobe gif with the expressed intention of causing a seizure (esp. with such a clear statement of causing severe harm as saying, "maybe it´ll make him die") should be categorized straight-up as assault.

In most cases proving intent is something only God can do. But some of these miscreants are cavalier enough in their malevolence to state, explicitly, that they hope it will cause harm. Let´s just say that such folks ought to be grateful as hell that I´m not their judge.

It has been ruled that shouting "Fire" in a crowded theater is not protected under Free Speech.

Sending a tweet intended to cause physical harm falls under the same heading, IMHO.

Devin Nunes Explains
His White House Visit
Bloomberg View, by Eli Lake    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/27/2017 8:28:31 PM     Post Reply
For the last few days, much of Washington has been obsessed with what Representative Devin Nunes did last Tuesday evening. That was the night before Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made the explosive allegation that he had viewed dozens of intelligence reports obtained through government eavesdropping that inappropriately included details about the Trump transition team. (Snip) Most important, Nunes told me these reports were sent to the Obama White House among other executive branch agencies. Nunes until now had only said the reports he viewed were widely distributed inside the government. "The reports included details about the Trump

Schumer Blasts GOP’s Plan
To Move On To Tax Reform

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he predicts Republicans’ efforts on tax reform will have a similar outcome to their attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. (Snip) While the White House has expressed hopes they can include Democrats in the process, Schumer said if they plan to pass the measure using the reconciliation process, they will run into some issues. “Now that the jig is finally up on health care, our Republican friends have signaled they will turn to taxes. I hope they have learned the lessons of Trumpcare,” he said on the Senate floor Monday. “One of the reasons

Fox’s Cavuto Slams ‘Over-the-Top
Negative Media Response’ to
Everything Trump Does
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/27/2017 7:39:52 PM     Post Reply
Fox’s Neil Cavuto ended his show this afternoon by criticizing the “over-the-top negative media response” to President Trump. Last week Cavuto said that while some of the media’s complaints about the Trump administration are important ones, there is a lot of unhinged “rage” going on in the press that keeps many from being fair. And while Fox has been criticized by other press outlets for not being tough enough on the president, Cavuto said today there are other outlets that are being way too biased against him. He made it clear that Trump “doesn’t much like me,” but Cavuto went on to observe,

The White House said Monday that President Trump is “absolutely” serious about working with Democrats on health care legislation after conservative Republicans balked at a GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. “We learned a lot through this process,” said White House press secretary Sean Spicer. “If we can come up with resolution on a way to move forward, we’ll certainly entertain that. I don’t think we’ve seen the end of health care.” Mr. Trump criticized the conservative House Freedom Caucus for failing to support the administration-backed bill last week, saying they were allowing Obamacare to remain in place and

An FBI undercover agent encouraged a terrorist to “tear up Texas” before the 2015 Garland, Texas shooting, and was at the crime scene and failed to stop or engage the perpetrators. This was revealed in an investigation by CBS’s “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday. The Garland shooting left two terrorists, Elliot Simpson and Nadir Soofi, dead. They attempted to attack an event featuring cartoons of the Muslim prophet Mohammed, but were stopped by local police. (Snip) “After the trial we found out that they had had an undercover agent who had been texting with Simpson, less than three weeks before the attack,

Rape Blames Trump for Public Outrage

Friday night on Fox News’ The First 100 Days, host Martha MacCallum interviewed the attorneys defending one of the illegal immigrants accused of raping a 14-year-old girl at Rockville High School, just over a week ago. The two lawyers defending 17-year-old Jose Montano blasted what they called the “sensationalized” coverage of the story, (despite the media blackout of its coverage). The primary defense attorney even blamed Trump’s immigration policies for spurring undue outrage at the story. The segment began with correspondent Doug McKelway introducing Montano’s “high profile” and “respected” lawyer, David Wooten, who had been hired privately by his family. The

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Former President Barack Obama´s journey to French Polynesia was undertaken so he could write his memoir. Obama arrived at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars in mid-March, though it was unknown at the time what he was doing there. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Obama is writing his White House memoir during his extended stay at the eco-friendly resort in French Polynesia´s atoll of Tetiaroa. Bidding for the former president and first lady Michelle Obama´s book rights surpassed $60 million.

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
