Evan Emory

Earlier this semester, we read an article in the NY Times about Evan Emory, who edited a video to make it appear that elementary school children were listening to him sing a song with graphic sexual lyrics.

He’s now been convicted of a felony and, among other things, is barred from getting closer than 500ft from where children gather.

While I understand that he did truly stupid thing, this punishment seems extremely excessive. Other opinions?
