Fw: Former Australian Cop Wants Jail For Internet Trolls

Austrália, avançada economicamente, mas atrasada politicamente.


beaverdownunder writes "A former police officer in the Australian state
of Victoria has called on law enforcement to prosecute creators of hate
pages on social media following Facebook's decision to close down a
page mocking Jill Meagher, the 29-year-old Melbourne woman abducted and
killed last month. Susan McLean, who spent 27 years with Victoria
Police before launching her cyber safety consultancy three years ago,
said police have the ability to prosecute the creators of pages that
are in breach of Australian laws but appear to be unwilling to use it.
'There have been many cases in the UK where these people have been
hunted down and charged and jailed. We need to do that in Australia.'
Under section 474.17 of the Commonwealth Crimes Act, it is an offense
to use 'a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offense,'
punishable by three years in jail."
