This, of course, caught my attention when watching The View. I loved hearing their opinions on the subject of monitoring your children. I felt the need to reach into the TV and introduce them to Flyware! All kidding aside, it does show you how the need for Flyware is very relevant. The Hot Topics segment was generated by a bill recently being passed in Arizona. This bill protects the parent's right to access their child's cell phone records. A similar court case occurred in Georgia in the case of Bishop v. State. This case occurred when an adult convicted of child molestation, aggravated child molestation, and sexual battery was seeking to exclude tapes recorded over the phone by the parents with a tape recorder purchased from Radio Shack. He was seeking protection under Georgia's wiretapping laws (OCGA §16- 11-62). So as a result, the court ruled in favor of the Parent...and rightfully so stating:
"Therefore, it is solely the task of the legislature to amend OCGA §16-11-66 to allow the admission into evidence of tape recordings such as those at issue here, i.e., tapes made by parents with a good faith, objectively reasonable basis for concern regarding the safety of their children as victims of criminal conduct of another."
As more states run into this issue, they will amend their laws to more clearly protect this right and responsibility of a parent. It makes me feel confident that our government is backing us as parents!
