>WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal, backed by the satirical site The Onion, from a man who was arrested and prosecuted for making fun of police on social media.
>The Onion filed its brief in defense of parody. Its lawyers wrote that the First Amendment protects people from prosecution when they make fun of others
Well, the title guidelines check out. But can we allow this on /r/nottheonion when the subject of the article is, literally, the onion?
Crazy how conservatives are the ones complaining that you can’t make jokes anymore
So he made fun of the Parma, Ohio, police on Facebook and got arrested on charges of “hurty piggy feelies”? Sounds like his roast was too accurate and they got big mad. He probably mentioned that time the department got caught sucking the drug dogs dick.
Qualified immunity is a bat that the police can use to shut down A N Y lawsuit from anybody they abuse/kill/rob
So is Reno 911! getting sued next?
