Hey everybody. It’s always interesting to me to find something like this when I peruse all the newspapers online in different states. This one happens to be from the state of, believe it or not, Hawaii. It’s now a crime to forge state IDs, drivers licenses, employee identification cards, with fake pictures lifted off the Internet. Amazing that you have to write a law in order to make this a crime.
Am I the only one out here who thinks this is ludicrous? That it’s obvious that this should be a crime? I’m not about to look at the laws in all 50 states, but I just wonder how many states consider deepfake a crime? Welcome to the 21st century.
Obviously (pun intended), don’t forget to wash your hands, and be safe. I’m still wearing a mask in public, because although I’ve had my shots, many have not. It’s a matter of choice.
