The Judge said the 144 text alone were enough to have the restraining order put into place. For those of us that use text as means of communication, we can "literally" send thousands of these daily, thus the reason most cell plans offer "unlimited" plans. Most people that send that many text send responses back and forth with: "k, yea, yes, no, maybe, want to, LOL, LMAO, SSS, etc so on and so forth. These one word answers or letters can be and ARE considered texts, yet they add up really fast when you are trying to talk to someone. Some people use text PRIMARILY as they do not have available sources for other communication. Many college students, professionals, Doctors, Law enforcement etc send text daily..... wonder how many of them will have restraining orders for exceeding the Criner "text policy"? Exactly where the NC Genral Statue on excessive text written?? Berger get your law books, think you can beat this one buddy!
