Quote:A GIF that triggered a US journalist’s seizure should be considered a deadly weapon, a Texas grand jury has said in an unprecedented ruling.

Magazine reporter Kurt Eichenwald, who has epilepsy, was sent a strobe-animated GIF by an anonymous Twitter user in December last year.

ok. so from now on everyone who has some seizure inducing (or any medical condition inducing - heart attacks etc) gif on his page can at least be charged with aggravated assault. blonde.gif
maybe in the future we'll have warnings before visiting a page. like those retarded cookie notifications.

"visiting this website may impair your health or lead to death - do you want to enter? (we also use cookies - potentially deadly cookies)"

sorry but if you're suffering from epilepsy it's your responsibility to check if the technology you use poses a potential threat to yourself. of course the guy who sent him the pic had the -intention- to induce a seizure but that "attack" would have led nowhere if eichenwald had taken the necessary precautions while dealing with this technology. he has been completely oblivious to the fact that twitter could harm him.
this whole thing is a complete farce and the grand jury is mentally handicapped.

what eichenwald did was basically running into his attackers knife on purpose due to being a retard.

I assume he was aware of having epilepsy?

What a freak Eichenwald is. Hasn't there been three or four threads on this?

Yeah, there's something not quite right about the whole deal.
