Penalties for crimes posted online

By Jony     Jan 25, 2007 in Technology
Criminals who post images or videos to the Internet of their violent exploits could face stiffer penalties under a new bill in Congress.
One example has received substantial publicity. Last week, police in Long Island, N.Y., arrested three high school girls accused of videotaping themselves kicking and punching a 13-year-old girl and then posting the footage to YouTube, Photobucket and MySpace, according to published reports.
Now this is a good step, internet has long served as a free world. Its time the things that go out of hands should get controlled, before it’s too late. The thought of “nothing can happen on internet” is more tempting, once they set few examples the amount of such happenings will reduce automatically. You can read the 3 page bill too in PDF format on the link.
