Mother pleads not guilty in cyber-bullying suicide test case • The Register

Example of how and why the State over-reaches itself.

Everyone is duly horrified at the “bullying” in this case but there is no relevant breach of existing laws. Instead of creating new laws (simply based on the “Do No Harm” principle) which could be democratically discussed and agreed, they attempt instead to bend existing laws to suit their vengeful purposes. This involves finding a judge willing to endorse a false interpretation of existing laws and, in the process, criminalising millions of anonymous posters.

The road to hell, as they say, is paved with good intentions…
