violated his free speechI read only up to that part and the thought "that's where he lost" just popped in my head.
Anyway I think they should really have to prove that it's actually the case when they say stupid things like "it promotes gang behavior". They should have to actually see if it's only harmless playing, or prove that the people playing it really show that behavior. Otherwise by the same reasoning these guys could go to court and ban guns everywhere saying it enables you to commit murders (oh, yeah, they should).
So the question is, did the guy and his group really use it to form gangs, or were they only playing normally. Should they ban playing cards too ? Some card games allow players to form teams, afterall !
“After all, punishment is a fundamental aspect of imprisonment, and prisons may choose to punish inmates by preventing them from participating in some of their favorite recreations,” the court said.Technically that does sound acceptable enough. But here again, they could just use that to justify putting everyone in a 2x2 cell with no bed and no skylight, because it's punishment.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
