NY Times, ”where the news is what we say it is even if we have to make it up”: Ariane Friedrich…a police officer by training, publicly rejected a sexually explicit overture from a fan on her Facebook wall, in which she named the sender and gave the city where he lives. She also warned that she had filed a complaint with the police.
More than 10,000 people have posted comments on her Facebook page, split between those who cheered her decision as bold move against sexual harassment, and those who chastised her for “vigilante justice.” The “likes” on her Facebook page have jumped from 8,000 to 12,000. Germany has very strict privacy laws that protect an individual’s right to determine whether their name and address can be published. Newspapers, for instance, do not publish the names of offenders, in an effort to prevent them from being marked after their release from prison.
“Vigilante justice?” So this creep is free to send polaroids (lol, dead) of his hairy bat and balls to her, but she’s not allowed to tell the world that he’s a dirtbag? Just stop sending
(unsolicited, wink!) pictures of your nutsack, you douchebag, and everything will be fine.
