Thread: ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal

    Under the act, anyone "wearing a mask" or in disguise who "injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person ... in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege" would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison.
    The language is too broad in both the description of what would constitute a crime, and the description of what the victim is doing. Basically sitting on a park bench would fit "enjoyment of any right or privilege" and the list of would be crimes is almost as broad. Furthermore, adding 15 years for wearing a mask would make it worse than sum punishment for the core crime in most cases.

    It's not illegal to wear a mask to a protest, but it would be so easy to twist this to the point you'd have masked protesters being accused of "intimidation" because someone said they were scared, and facing a 15 year sentence instead of a misdemeanor. A little bit of overkill.

    I don't use Lich. If you want to do business with me, contact me via PM, IG, or on AIM. Or maybe use smoke signals. Don't like it, get off of my lawn.

    Lolz, you can get three years just for wearing a mask in public in Louisiana. You don't need to "injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person". Mardi Gras, Balls, Halloween is excluded of course, unless you're a sex offender.

    I can go fuck someone up and it's ok as long as I'm wearing a Mardi Gras mask as long as I'm not a sex offender? Fucking right.

    No, but you can wear a mardi gras mask during mardi gras. If you fuck someone up, you'll be arrested for fucking someone up.

    No fuck that you already said I can kick someone's ass if I'm wearing a Mardi Gras mask so that's what the law is now.

    I did not. I said you don't need to do anything other than wear the mask to get the charge. Not that other things wouldn't create more charges.

    If I wear a mask to fuck up Antifa when they started fucking shit up, am I in the right or wrong?
