I would really like a new version of the Moto X that will be assembled in the Texas plant that assembles the current Moto X instead yet another cheap phone. There are a lot of cheap phones but the Moto X is the only phone that I know that is being assembled in the US but it comes with an older version of Android which is why I want them to offer a new version before I buy one

Student Records Kids Who Bully Him, Then Gets Threatened With Wiretapping Charges

2 Comments and 3 Shares
An anonymous reader tips news of an incident in a Pennsylvania high school in which a student, Christian Stanfield, was being bullied on a regular basis. He used a tablet to make an audio recording of the bullies for the purpose of showing his mother how bad it was. She was shocked, and she called school officials to tell them what was going on. The officials brought in a police lieutenant — but not to deal with the bullies. Instead, the officer interrogated Stanfield and made him delete the recording. The officer then threatened to charge him with felony wiretapping. The charges were later reduced to disorderly conduct, and Stanfield was forced to testify before a magistrate, who found him guilty. Stanfield's mother said, "Christian's willingness to advocate in a non-violent manner should be championed as a turning point. If Mr. Milburn and the South Fayette school district really want to do the right thing, they would recognized that their zero-tolerance policies and overemphasis on academics and athletics have practically eliminated social and emotional functioning from school culture."

Wow. If he was one party to the bullying, I am not sure how he is guilty of wiretapping unless he was not on the receiving end himself.
