There’s a meme floating around the internet saying “If you don’t want to get caught, don’t commit the crime.” I’d like to direct that meme to “Grace” with the blurred last name in the #UnderCoverAntifa video. Little Grace apparently has her romper in a twist after the video exposed her confessing to a crime over Facebook. People are easily duped if you commend them for “slaying” a Nazi. To be fair, “pausing to think about her actions” probably isn’t a skill listed on her curriculum vitae. Methinks she’d need to Google “curriculum vitae.”
Now Grace, who I’d like to remind you, confessed to a crime via Facebook, is miffed that there’s video. Of her. Confessing to a crime. On Facebook.
Rather than taking her lumps and maybe — gosh — learning from the mistake, she’s filed a privacy complaint with YouTube.
The video didn’t show Grace’s social security number, National Identification number, bank account or contact information. Just her picture she’s made public on Facebook. Facebook, where everybody knows your name… because you made it so. There is no expectation of “privacy” on public internet profiles. That I have to type that little truth makes me reach for the tissues. So I might weep for humanity.
Also, Utah is a single party consent state. Meaning it doesn’t take two to tango. If one party wants to share, they can. Look it, the statute(s):
Summary of statute(s): An individual who is a party to either an in-person conversation or electronic communication, or who has the consent of one of the parties to the communication, can lawfully record it, unless the person is doing so for the purpose of committing a criminal or tortious act. A person also can lawfully record electronic communications that are readily accessible to the general public. Utah Code Ann. § 77-23a-4 (West 2012).
Ergo the law says Grace can be filmed. But the law doesn’t matter to sweet little Grace. Nor, apparently, does it to YouTube. YouTube decided to create their own rules. Which they CAN do as a private business. Okay? Okay. But guess what? Their rules, especially in this case, favor the liberals who will abuse the laws. Which allow for elimination of free speech.
The liberal media and its acolytes want to protect Antifa. I’ll say “allegedly” just for the hell of it. But can we really deny that’s exactly what’s going on here? Would YouTube have acquiesced to Grace’s request had our video exposed, say, some white supremacists handing out weapons with which to shank BlackLivesMatter?
