I don't see how they can enforce this.
How do they know someone has an account or not? Are they monitoring everything people on probation do on the internet? Would this be legal for people
on Probation? It seems they would have to specifically stipulate in the probation agreement that all of your internet traffic will be monitored, if
not, they can't look at it.
So, what if someone creates a fake account about you? Probation officer demands password, you don't give it to him because it's not your account, do
you go back to jail?
Couldn't an arse hole probation officer (all of them) create a fake profile for someone, with the sole purpose of sending the person back to jail
when they don't hand over the password, once again because it isn't their account? Yes they could.
Years ago some enemies I had at the time created a fake myspace profile about me. I got in some trouble with my job because of it, and lost a
girlfriend I had. If I was on probation, how do I prove it isn't my account?
This just seems far too easy to abuse, not to mention the privacy issues. I shouldn't be surprised though, this country wont be happy until you cant
take a poo without asking for permission, and getting a written poo card that entitles you to 2 poos per day, or else you go to jail.
