Facebook is another site in which people often express their opinions on government, religion and other topics. When opinions expressing certain views are posting in some countries, the person that posts them can be punished.For instance, an Egyptian man was taken into custody and reportedly tortured for posting an anti-Mohamed video that had been circulating the internet on his Facebook. This video had already sparked an distress in people of the Muslim community and they called for a repression of western free speech. Another Egyptian citizen, a blogger, was sentenced to prison for denouncing the way that one of Egypt’s major religions works. A teacher was also jailed because he posted comics that were offensive to Mohammed on his Facebook. He received three more years to his three year sentence for insulting the people in the court.(Shea 24) Sometimes, however, the speech of people isn’t justified. A Virginia man was taken into custody for posting anti-government messages on Facebook.(Craymer 20) The statements he made were very escalated in content and hinted at a violent outburst to come. The opinions he had posted were covered by the First Amendment, but the actions he spoke of taking were not, which is why the government had to take action. If he had been in a country stricter about their free speech laws, he might have been sentenced to death and not just held in custody.
