Why should being an asshole be punished by prison time, if no one got hurt. Why not just ignore the assholes? Considering that writing on your Facebook or Twitter account isn't really too different from saying it in a crowded room, maybe everyone should walk around recording what everyone else says. 90% of the country would end up in jail.
