    Mo wash cited for drug paraphernalia

    I said laws like this (that involve social media, cell phones, etc) APPROACH first amendment issues IMO. Never said "revenge porn" IS a first amendment issue. What I'm trying to (and apparently failing) convey is that social media related laws are definitely a gray area that bring up all kinds of questions. Some of which relate to the first amendment. I think this law and other similar ones will probably need to be addressed by the Supreme Court someday.

    Thanks for pointing out when I'm wrong. Just to clarify, I said I didn't think this was a case of "obvious criminal activity" and I gave examples of murder, rape, assault, etc. Are you equating those with what MO is accused of? It sure sounds like it. If you are going to call people out, get your facts straight first.

    Mo wash cited for drug paraphernalia

    Not at all what I said and I need to clarify that I am not referring to the felony charge of child porn possession he is facing. It is the "revenge porn" law that I have an issue with. I certainly don't condone "revenge porn" as it is typically interpreted. However, I think legality issues involving phones and social media, etc should be decided at the federal level. Otherwise as soon as you cross a state line your guilt status has now changed, meanwhile your cell signal is bouncing off towers in the other state. How do they enforce that? How can they prove you were in possession of your phone and not someone else? And will they subpoena the GPS history of your phone to see what state your phone was in at the time? What if the recipient was in a state that had no such law? All this for a disorderly conduct misdemeanor? The first amendment allows for "freedom of speech and expression". How do people "speak" and "express" themselves nowadays? For better or for worse it's often thru social media, cell phones, etc. Therefore I think the these laws should be universal throughout the nation. That's just the way I feel about it. If you don't want to discuss it further, that is fine, but please don't make false insinuations.

    He has not entered a plea yet. His court date is June 12 to enter his plea. Look if Frost wants to boot hime for the Cali thing, he can. I just don't think he will. Punishing him for it makes little sense to me as well as I"m sure the courts will take care of that. Had he been a member of the team when it happened, then some sort of punishment from the team/Frost would be expected. I think that is an important factor here, but who knows. We'll see how this all shakes out.

    I have a big problem with the reliance on "intent" that this law has. If the law should exist then why isn't it universally adopted by other states? It's too vague and near impossible to prove guilt without making assumptions. I think laws like this that approach First Amendment discussions should be determined at the federal level.

    I disagree. Do you think Frost wants to be the coach who punishes for past indiscretions which occurred prior to a player being on campus? Iowa and Wisky coaches would have a hay day negatively recruiting against us for that. All the bad press and likely embarrassment Mo has gotten from the California thing is punishment enough IMO.

    Debatable at best. I’m not going to waste time arguing about that.

    We’ll of course if he killed someone or committed assault, rape or robbery, etc. I wasn’t referring to obvious criminal activity. This is is not the case here.

    Wow. Lots of knee-jerk reactions here. He won’t be punished by NU for the California thing as he wasn’t even enrolled yet. Do you really think Frost wants to start a precedent of retroactive punishment for what players did before being a Husker? The weed thing— Who cares? It’s a minor infraction. He’s probably stressed out about all the BS in Cali. You really want to toss a kid out for that when our POTUS has done ten times worse things and half of us are apparently ok with that? Unbelievable folks. We don’t need a team of future Sunday School Teachers ( no offense if anyone here is).
  10. A closer who just throws fastballs doesn't work against a good hitting team. Not just this game, but baseball in general when coaches pull a middle reliever who just got you out of a jam and has plenty of pitches left, only to go to the closer who blows an masterful pitching performance by the starter. Frustrates the hell out of me.
  11. Ha. Unfortunately can’t do that.
  12. I see I’ll be missing the first game because of work. Again!

    Predicted First Loss for Each B1G Team

    That was a factor. The feeling I had during the game that day was that we had no business losing, but still managed a way to do just enough to get another L. The officiating didn’t help, but the Huskers hurt themselves too many times. I desperately need a W over NW this season to help me get over experiencing the NW student section chanting “O and six” at us while we were leaving our seats.

    Hmmm. Was he also arguing calls with a NW fan while simultaneously being hushed by his wife. If so, yep. It was me.
