    If this were universally prosecuted, every college in America would have to shut down. Even my esteemed Governor is allowing it.
    They only arrested him after he held a second party less than a week after the first, and then defied the order to break it up. Most college students would have simply shut down their parties when the cops showed up and that would be the end of it.
    "Officers told Myers to disband the party, but again he was argumentative claiming he and his guests had the right to congregate," according to prosecutors.

    Myers also allegedly told "his guests to stay in defiance of Governor Hogan’s Orders and the officers’ lawful orders to disband the party," prosecutors said.

      American Could Face Prison in Thailand After Posting Negative Reviews of a Resort

      The man was arrested under Thailand’s criminal defamation law, which has been used to silence critics and stifle dissent. The hotel that brought charges acknowledges that using the law might be “excessive.”

      If the Sea View was hoping to win back its good name, seeking help from the police backfired, badly. Mr. Barnes’s arrest has set off condemnation online, negative news stories and a burst of bad reviews for the resort. A hotel manager said the resort was receiving death threats from foreigners.

      “Not sure why the geniuses in charge here think that locking someone up for ‘damaging their reputation’ with a deserved bad review is going to help their reputation,” read one review on Google posted Monday by someone calling themselves Wholesome Bot.

      • Last week CU-Boulder went to all online classes for the next two weeks, then Boulder County issued a Public Health Order banning all gatherings of any size, indoor or outdoor, among 18 to 22 year-olds, college students or otherwise, over the next two weeks.. Any size means two people or more. Additionally, residents of 36 properties, mostly Greek houses, are on stay-at-home orders for two weeks. My son, who is a pre-law poli-sci major and who is generally far-left politically, is realizing he has a bit of libertarian in him and questions the constitutionality of such an order, since it targets one age-based group only. Tomorrow he's doing a Zoom meeting with the prof from his constitutional law class from last year to discuss the issue and draft a letter to the local ACLU chapter raising his concerns.

                              No, it looks as if it was I who messed it up. It does indeed seem to be pene-exclave, not pene-enclave.

                              The good news is that now I've learned another new word. 😉
