Rapper "The Game" won't face charges for tweeting Sheriff Dept's phone number in internship ad and causing fans to flood it with hundreds of calls for 3 hoursOn Friday evening, the Twitter feed for the Compton rapper sent out a message appearing to encourage his 580,000 followers to call the posted number for an internship. The tweet gave no indication that the phone number was in fact the official help line for the Sheriff's Department's Compton station. For almost three hours, the station's lines were jammed with hundreds of calls, blocking legitimate requests for help.
Many callers asked deputies for a "music internship." Others just hung up when they heard law enforcement on the line.
Initially sheriff's officials publicly said they would seek criminal charges and present a case to prosecutors. But legal experts doubted that the tweet could be proved to be criminal. They said prosecutors would have to show that the rapper sent the message himself, and intended to jam the station's lines.

I wonder if everyone who had an emergency but couldn't get through could sue his ass.

The SO should tweet his number so we can jam those lines telling how much his music sucks.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
