http://dailycaller.com/2014/01/16/this-man-was-arrested-for-clicking-like-on-a-facebook-status tl;dr The man had a restraining order taken out against him by a woman he had a previous relationship with. She shared a video on Facebook and he liked it. She called the cops and showed them that he liked it, so they arrested him for violating the order. What are your thoughts on this?

    I consider it a deeply emotional form of contact whenever someone likes my posts. Let him rot I say.

      Not quite sure what those other charges have to do with this particular case (maybe I didn't comprehend the entire article) but this is stupid. There are security tools on your profile for a reason. For one, she could easily block him on Facebook. She wouldn't be able to see him and he wouldn't be able to see her. How was he able to like something she posted if he wasn't already friends with her? That would mean everything she posts is available to the public. Why not take extra measures, especially online, to make sure that restraining order is even more in place?

      • That's completely ridiculous unless this is outlined in the restraining order in some way.

      • I can see both sides. The guy would probably claim it was innocent and the girl would probably claim it violates restraining order. Personally, if someone put a restraining order on me I wouldn't associate with them in any way at all:

      • It should be tossed. Why? She has the option to make her profile private, and unfriend him. If she took those steps, and he managed to like it, fine. But if its a public profile, she's waived any rights she had to who views it.

        • Did the order prohibit facebook likes?

        • Can't you only like what your "friends" post? Does that mean they were Facebook friends? If that is the case, then I think this makes it her stupid fault for not removing him.

          • Justified. It's heavy-handed, sure, she could've blocked him, but people like him need to learn what "restraint" actually is and the consequences for not following.

          • Sometimes I use likes as a form of psychological warfare. It's a legitimate strategy.

            • why would you be facebook friends with someone you have a restraining order against? Why would you be facebook friends with someone who has a restraining order on you? I call stupidity on both sides.

              I understand the argument that it could've been an accident, but if you've a court order saying no contact, that's [i]no contact[/i]. It's petty and (probably) not that significant, but it [i]is[/i] a violation. Kinda silly, but justified.

                Unless he reached right over her shoulder and tapped the like button on her phone while she was holding it, I can't imagine this being a violation. You'd think she would see that and think, "oh yeah, I gotta block him on Facebook too".

                Cops are busy arresting people for such petty things. Been to long since we've bad a good bandit raid.

              • Well, with all the social media nowadays it's easy to stalk someone on the Internet. If you have a restraining order against someone it's logical to not want them stalking you in real life or the Internet. It's kind of the same as preventing sex offenders from using the Internet/chatting with others online. It seems harmless, but it can lead to other things.
