More Tales From the Over-Regulated State

Tennessee has passed a law that anyone who posts a picture online that causes "emotional distress" to anyone, anywhere at anytime, is subject to fines and or imprisonment. 
The specific law outlaws posting a photo online that causes "emotional distress" to someone and has no "legitimate purpose." While the law does state that there needs to be "malicious intent," it also includes a massive loophole, in that it says that you can still be liable if the person "reasonably should know" that the actions would "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress."
Seems unconstitutional on its face, but that doesn't seem to mean much anymore.  Just more ways to bend you to their insane wills. 

Read the whole thing.  It's short.

Say, isn't Oleg in Tennessee?
