Ariz. Bill Says It’s Unlawful To ‘Annoy’ Others Online

Arizonans venturing online may want to think twice before leaving a comment on a website.

Words that someone could view as “annoying” or “offensive” on Facebook or Twitter, for example, could be deemed a criminal offense under a bi-partisan bill that’s moving swiftly to Gov. Jan Brewer’s desk.

The bill would update telephone harassment and stalking laws by adding the use of computers or smartphones.

Supporters say the measure would help victims of online stalking and harassment whose cases have been dismissed in court because state law has not caught up with the technology.

Critics say the proposal goes too far.
