Arizona marches to the beat of its own drummer. But if that drummer gets upset and starts hollering on the Internet, he might get tossed in the clink. After spending years targeting illegal aliens, the Grand Canyon State is turning its sights on obnoxious Internet users (commonly called 'trolls')

I agree with the stalking part. But it is really far too vague using terms like annoy or offend. That is absolutely ridiculous. I hope she doesn't sign the bill.

It's plainly unconstitutional, like so many of the bills which the AZ legislature has recently passed. Here's a statement from the Media Coalition:

It looks like the main problem is that they simply updated an old telephone harassment statute without considering the free speech ramifications, or the fact that things like blogs are one to many rather than one to one.

And it's a good thing for you that you don't live there. Though with your attitudes, I'm shocked that you don't.



Oh wait, they don't like immigrants there, do they?

They don't like ILLEGAL immigrants.



As a LEGAL immigrant I have no problem living LEGALLY in AZ or anywhere in the US. Or the EU. Or Australia.

Your supposed wife from Columbia might not find the conditions as favorable in AZ as a pasty-white Brit.

One may oppose illegal immigration while supporting legal immigration.

Like me she is perfectly legal and has nothing to fear in any US state.
