Honestly I would like to see aereo become the Worlds first Internet only "Cable" service. With features that most cable companies should have been offering a long time ago instead of trying to protect their out dated business models with lawsuits.
On Demand everything, per channel subscriptions, available on multiple devices. This is something I would definitely pay for.
Reading things like this makes me glad my children are all older, because if they weren't they would not be attending public schools. This type of behavior from our schools & police is completely unacceptable and I can't believe it's allowed to continue.
I suppose it's just another step in assimilating our society into conformity. I've long worried that schools are teaching children to conform rather to then to love learning.
You know we should create a website that allows users to google the name of a movie or t.v. show and then takes a screenshot of the search results. Then we have the screenshots sent to (insert representative name here).
We should then proceed to advertise this in every way possible and have as many people as we can bombard (insert representative name here) with those screenshots along with some text explaining how they are full of it.
Perhaps I am acquainted with it and chose to exercise it in my reply.
That being said, this website is not the United States, it's privately owned and the concept of free speech does not apply here. The only comments allowed are those the techdirt staff deem appropriate. Should they choose to remove them then they have that right.
Sadly this is nothing new. People who always claim to be doing something "for the children" almost always seem to have ulterior motives.
People are strange when it comes to children & their rights. Like when it comes to charging children as adults. Everyone wants to tell these children they have no rights other than what their parents/guardians give them because they are children, and there is no recourse otherwise. Until they do something wrong, then all the sudden it's "Well they were old enough to know better". The whole method of dealing with children thus far really is very backwards and in most cases instead of bettering the child/children's situations it only serves to make things worse.
This too is my concern. By all accounts carter was a pretty good 18year old. He actually had a job (and as the mother of a 19 year old believe me when I say that in itself is accomplishment lol). But now that this has happened, even if the charges are dropped. What kind of a person will be when/if he is released. Will he still become a contributing member of society or will be end up depressed and "medicated" or possibly even worse, angry and next actually do something to hurt people. What a horrible place we live in when we are possibly creating our monsters...
