Teen Justin Carter Jailed In Texas After Making Sarcastic Threat On Facebook

LINK

quote:

Earlier this year, Carter and a friend got into an Facebook argument with someone regarding "League of Legends," an online video game with notoriously die-hard fans. Justin's father, Jack, explained to ABC local affiliate KVUE that at the end of the conversation "[s]omeone had said something to the effect of 'Oh you're insane, you're crazy, you're messed up in the head,’ to which [Justin] replied 'Oh yeah, I'm real messed up in the head, I'm going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts,’ and the next two lines were lol and jk [all sic]."

A woman in Canada who came across the boy's post failed to see the humor, however, and alerted police after Internet research revealed Carter, who was 18 at the time of the incident, lived near an elementary school. Carter was taken into custody and charged with making a "terroristic" threat.

In the meantime, Carter, now 19, faces up to eight years in prison. His trial is scheduled to begin July 1.

Gotta be kidding me... I better stop being so sarcastic.

Also the Police monitor facebook more than you think. I've seen Prosecutors link things together for more jail time thanks to good old Facebook.

What is some random Canadian woman doing looking at teenage boys, from Texas, Facebook page?

Sounds like she is a pedo creeper looking for barely legal young boys.

So this was the father's explanation of his own kid's post. Interdasting.

I agree with all of this. There should be consequences for stuff like this. Once it is put in writing threats like this are kind of official, but I think a pretty hefty fine would be sufficient to teach this kid a lesson. You don't need to ruin the kid's life over this.

No, no, no, no.

The kid didnt directly make a threat at anything or anybody, he just generally made a sarcastic comment, its complete bull shite that he was arrested.
