Default Texas teen faces possible 8 years for online joke ...

Quote:
In February, Justin Carter was playing “League of Legends” — an online, multiplayer fantasy game — when another player wrote a comment calling him insane. Carter’s response, which he now deeply regrets, was intended as joke.

“He 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,” said Jack Carter, Justin’s father, in a statement to a local news channel.

The statements “lol” and “jk” — meaning “laughing out loud” and “just kidding” — indicate that Justin’s statement was entirely sarcastic, said his father.

But a Canadian woman who saw the post looked up Carter’s Austin address, determined that it was near an elementary school, and called the police. Carter was arrested one month later, and has been in jail ever since. He recently celebrated his 19th birthday behind bars.

Authorities charged him with making a terrorist threat. If convicted, he will face eight years in prison.

What a load of crap. Kids say stuff like this all the time.

Can't believe a person may lose his future because some woman was paranoid. Unreal.

I'll be even more shocked if he actually gets convicted.

If everyone was as horrible as that Canadian woman, half of the people I play against on Xbox live would be in jail right now.

I agree that this is out of control and the kid was obviously joking.

But these are different times, that is just our new reality. How many times has a student attacked others and his friends would say "yeah, he made threats but we thought he was joking."

You simply CANNOT joke like this in public at all, ever! I would say to anyone thinking of joking in this manner, just don't.

Hope he gets released and acquitted...

Terrible thing to say, but satire and sarcasm aren't illegal.

who the hell doesn't live near a school? That old bag of a Canuck needs to mind her own business. She's obviously never been on XBox Live. You'll never hear so many threats, homophobic rants, and N-words being thrown around anywhere else.

Read where his father said he is terrified and "has given up all hope"

He is also on suicide watch. This is seriously ****ed. What type of world do we live in where our severe paranoia can cost people their lives/future?

EDIT: Also, the bail is set a $500,000.......I have seen murder cases where the bail is $150,000.

This is far from "pussification". Not even a year ago a teenager busted into an Elementary school and killed 20 children. Its a very real threat now a days.
