Seriously, my state has made online gambling (betting, poker, keno, etc) illegal. Oh sure, it's "always" been illegal but it was a misdemeanor before but NOW it's a felony. -_- [story link]
- Illegal immigrants = not even a misdemeanor despite breaking federal law on immigration.
- Online gambling = felony.
So what are computer stores to do if we end up with a customer whose computer has a browser history of illegal gambling sites and we stumble upon it while repairing the computer? What are we supposed to do? Call the cops and report the person for violating the law on online gambling? What happens if we don't report it? Would we, the computer store owners, be held responsible for not reporting it? Yes, if it was child porn then the computer store would be required to contact the cops but online gambling? ::rolleyes::
Seriously, how the hell are they going to enforce this law? Have the hundreds or thousands of ISP companies report on who is going to those websites? Have those ISPs block every online gambling site? It's stupid.
I'm amazed. Online gamling = felony, coming in the US illegally = not even a misdemeanor.
