French parliament votes to jail tech execs who refuse to decrypt data

The French parliament has voted in favor of punishing companies that refuse to decrypt data for government investigators – by threatening businesses with big fines and possible jail terms for staff.

This comes amid the FBI's high-profile battle with Apple in the US to unlock a dead killer's encrypted iPhone.

French deputies voted to add an amendment to a penal reform bill that would fine companies €350,000 (US$385,350) for a refusal to decrypt and give up to five years in jail for senior executives. Telecommunications company executives would face smaller fines and up to two years in jail for not cooperating with the authorities.

The new penalties were the idea of right wing opposition deputies, AFP (Agence France Presse) reports, and are opposed by the French government, which has consistently opposed moves to reduce IT security after the terrorist attack in Paris last November.

Andy Sternberg of Rotary International depicts Kendrick Lamar as a monkey in tweet

Jeremy Schwer of Indianapolis won't serve any time for raping 6 year old cancer stricken daughter

An Indianapolis man will not serve time in prison for molesting his young daughter who has cancer, Marion Superior Court records show.

Jeremy Schwer, 41, pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony child molesting.

The crimes occurred after the girl was diagnosed with cancer and her parents started alternating taking care of her at night, court records state.

Deputy Prosecutor Courtney Curtis, who is division chief of the special victims team, said she had argued for Schwer to serve nine years in prison followed by three years on probation. But the girl's mother, who filed for divorce, wrote a letter asking the court not to send Schwer to prison because she hoped he would help financially support their children.

After doctors found a brain tumor in 2013, the girl spent several months in the hospital and went through a year of chemotherapy.

Schwer was charged in 2015 after his now-estranged wife called the Indiana Department of Child Services. Their daughter, then 6 years old, told her mother that she had touched her father's "peepeeluca," the family's word for private parts, according to court records. The little girl later told officials that her father also touched her "peepeeluca" and had her sit on his "cat tail."

The girl, now 7, said her father told her not to tell or he would go to jail, court records state. She eventually told her mother it happened every night when she slept with her father.

On Tuesday, Marion Superior Court Magistrate Steven Rubick sentenced Schwer to 12 years of probation, court records state. He also required Schwer to register as a sex offender, continue treatment at a counseling center and vacate the family's home so his estranged wife and children could move back in.

Republicans on Breitbarf site think Trump's plan to wall off the internet is a fantastic idea

So much for "Don't tread on me", "1776 will commence", "we need a less intrusive government" and "we need a smaller government"


This may be why the GOP may be trying to throw the election, if a republican gets elected they can't continue to sell guns, tee shirts, bumper stickers to these mindless idiots who are only capable of spewing talking points they heard on a right wing radio station.

Just another day in 2nd amendment America

Welcome to America where guns are easier to get a hold of than the latest Star Wars toys.

LOS FELIZ (CBSLA.com) — Diners were enjoying an evening meal at MessHall Kitchen in Los Feliz on Sunday when a gunshot suddenly rang through the air, critically injuring a parking attendant and sending patrons into a panic.

Around 7 p.m., a man drove up to a valet attendant and demanded to get his money back. When the valet told the armed man that he did not have his money, the man took out a gun, shot the valet in the stomach and drove away, police said.

The victim, who has asked co-workers not to be identified, is said to be in critical condition.

The shooting stunned diners who clamored for shelter under tables. One person ran through the restaurant and told people to get on the floor.

“It was very loud. My ears started ringing immediately and I knew it was a large gun, not a pistol,” said witness Erin Quill, who was eating dinner on the patio nearby. “The gentleman next to me had small a child and threw a table over him like a fort.”


You don't see this crap happening in the UK.
