You can't poke in America
Coppers in the Land of the Free have arrested a woman who
poked someone on Facebook.
While it would appear that police believe that Facebook
poking is a literal attempt to make physical contact, in fact the woman in
question was breaking a court order. Quite how the court order was phrased to include Facebook
poking reports are not saying, but US coppers feel they have enough on the
woman to say “you are nicked sunshine”.
Shannon D. Jackson, 36, was arrested for
"poking" to contact a woman she had been ordered not to communicate
with. Poking can mean anything including saying "hi." Hendersonville police made copies of the page showing the
poke just in case anyone said that Jackson had not poked.
An affidavit was filed in Sumner County General Sessions
Court and Jackson was taken to the Sumner County Jail on $1,500 bond. She is
scheduled to appear in court later this month.
