This is the actual text from a bill recently signed into law by radical right-wing Republican Governor Bill Haslam:
Here is the language of the new law:
(a) A person commits an offense who intentionally:
(4) Communicates with another person or transmits or displays an image in a manner in which there is a reasonable expectation that the image will be viewed by the victim by [by telephone, in writing or by electronic communication] without legitimate purpose:
(A) (i) With the malicious intent to frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress; or
(ii) In a manner the defendant knows, or reasonably should know, would frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress to a similarly situated person of reasonable sensibilities; and
(B) As the result of the communication, the person is frightened, intimidated or emotionally distressed.
What is the definition of “reasonable?” To sane people, reasonable would not include grownups who believe in supernatural beings like God and Jesus, or bizarre concepts like heaven and hell. But if the people defining what it means to be reasonable are themselves insane, where does that leave the rest of us with laws like this?
Right-wingers only want to “return to the Constitution” when it suits their needs.
