Student's mom convicted of posting rumours on facebook Another link to this story So this woman posted a message on facebook describing some hearsay from her child, that there were some students planning on bringing weapons to school to shoot each other. It appears the woman did nothing malicious, and may have actually had good intentions. But, perhaps that is beside my point. She was convicted in court of Public Nuisance. This brings me back to the age-old debate concerning free speech. Where does freedom of speech end? If a newspaper had posted a similar rumour. What do you guys and gals think? EDIT: For convenience, this is the alleged post in question: Sentence was 30 days in jail (deferred) and a $29 court cost.
