War On Free Speech: Starkville, Mississippi Aldermen Want Twitter Parodist Arrested
THE War on Free Speech marches into Starkville, Mississippi, where police are seeking the master criminals who lampooned Starkville Aldermen David Little and Ben Carver using the Twitter accounts @DavidLittleBOA and @BenCarverPray.
The Daily Dolt notes:
The two aldermen came under fire recently after instigating the removal of Starkville’s highly popular Chief Administration Officer Lynn Spruill without providing any reason for the coup other than Carver’s comment that he “prayed” about it and God told him to kick her to the curb (hence the parody handle @BenCarverPrays).
For those people who don’t get the punchline to jokes – ever – both accounts are marked “parody”. And they have been taken down.
But Mr Little wants the tweeters to pay for their “illegal impersonation”.
You need a licence to parody?
Starkville P.D.’s – get this – Sgt. Durr says police are engaged in an “ongoing investigation” into this dastardly joking. He adds:
“We are investigating the possibility of criminal charges.”
Who needs parody, when the targets are the gifts that keep on giving..?
