Social Media “Abusers”

Woman-crying

Social Media abusers will now be prosecuted in the UK. Guess which sex will be most impacted? Men, as we don’t tattle after being insulted.

Here’s SkyNews:

Domestic abusers who use social media or online surveillance to control their victims could face up to five years behind bars from today.

New legislation makes it possible for the first time for charges to be brought in domestic abuse cases where there is evidence of repeated “controlling or coercive behaviour”.

The powers will help authorities intervene in cases where offenders subject spouses, partners or other family members to emotional abuse but stop short of violence.

Coercive behaviour is defined as a continuing act or pattern of acts which are used to harm, punish or frighten a victim.

Controlling behaviour covers a range of conduct designed to make a person subordinate or dependent.

The Crown Prosecution Service said examples could include:

:: Stopping a victim from socialising.

:: Limiting access to family, friends and finances.

:: Monitoring a person via online communication tools, for example using tracking apps on mobile phones.

:: Threats to reveal or publish private information.

The new offence of controlling and coercive behaviour was announced after 85% of respondents to a consultation said the law does not currently give sufficient protection to victims.

A new California law scheduled to take effect Friday will allow the police to seize private, legally-owned weapons for up to three weeks without charges or allowing the citizen to contest the seizure.
AB1014 was passed last year in the wake of 2014’s Isla Vista shooting, where teenager Elliot Rodger went on a rampage near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, killing six people along with himself.

    That California law is an affront to the rights of all free people. That other B.S. is a nail in the coffin to maturity, freedom and intelligence. Life control all flows from the left. I am am adult. I am free. I don’t need ma and pa governance.

      So true Al . And the new law is an absolute outrage and blatant violation of our constitutional right to bear arms with any number of specious excuses from other people for gov’t to take a person’s firearms away and even extend that to a year ! Ridiculous, and yet again , another example of why these vile self loathing depraved leftists need to be fought at every turn . Support your local NRA chapter .

        NRA is the best organization we have, no doubt.
