nightinear prison sentence because of a threatening joke he
y A Texas teenager who has been in jail since March faces an
made while playing an online video game.
Foundation
a See All Articles In February, Justin Carter was playing "League of Legends"
E Email Robby Scurge - an online, multiplayer fantasy game - when another
It ascribe tcy RSS player wrote a cemment calling him insane. Carter' s
E my an Twitter response, which he new deeply regrets, was intended as joke.
El Bio "He replied 'Oh yeah, I' m real messed up in the head, I' m
going to go sheet up a wheel full of kids and eat their still,
beating hearts,' and the next two lines were lel and ," said
Jack Carter, J ustin' s father, in a statement to a local news channel.
The statements "lol" and "" - meaning "laughing out loud" and "just kidding" - indicate
that J ustin' s statement was entirely sarcastic, said his father.
But a Canadian weman who saw the post looked up Carter' s Austin address, determined
that it was near an elementary schewl, 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 terrerist threat. If convicted, he will face eight years
in prison.
These people are serious. They really want my son to go away to jail for a sarcastic
cemment that he made," said the elder Carter.
Authorities noted that recent wheel shootings like the one in Newtown, Connecticut have
caused them to evaluate all potential threats seriously. Newtown was still fresh in their
minds at the time of Carter' s arrest.
In light of recent situations, statements such as the one Justin made are taken seriously,"
said an Austin police detective in a statement.
Carter' s father said his son didn' t follow the news at all.
Justin was the kind of kid who didn' t read the newspaper," said Jack Carter. "He didn' t
watch television. He wasn' t aware of current events. These kids, they dent realize what
they' re doing. They dent understand the implications They dent understand."
Carter' s parents have launched a petition to convince Texas Attorney General
Greg Abbot to release their sen.
Release Justin Carter hom jail," the petition reads. "Too many teenagers are being
arrested, jailed and having their lives forever altered because of laws and
investigations that impede their sst Amendment right to freedom of speech.”
A hearing to review Carter' s case is scheduled for July 1.

Incoming red thumbs, I'm gonna rant.


Am I the only one whose getting kinda annoyed by america now. I mean come on, what the guy said was a joke. It's gaming talk, not some terrorist talk. You hear worse talk on 4chan and even funnyjunk yet no one bats an eye. And what the **** is some bitch in canada doing looking up this kids address. It's like anyone can find out where you are even if they only have your name. So much for the security in the land of the free (Obvious sarcasm)

But come on america, I'm american and even I'm starting to get sick of this ****.

We've gone from a nation that gets involved in everyone's affairs and talks **** to anyone to a nation that's scared to get its own people offended and is probably scared of its own shadow. We shouldn't be the mother that tries to oversee what every other nation is doing and get involved. HELL, we can't even solve our own problems because we use lazy, slacking, retarded politicians that could give two ***** about that people and only care about the money in his/her pockets.

Tlr, America needs to get its **** together.

"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"
Also a few points;
-Texas has been doing stupid **** since forever; they tried to outlaw critical thinking because it undermines religious belief
-The scandal a few weeks ago about a bill
-They're pretty separate from the U.S.
-It's EXTREMELY hard to get involved in a nation that's religiously, politically and morally separated, not to mention the U.S is ENORMOUS.

I'm just going to vent some of my rage with you since it's relevant. I live in America. It is the eve of the 4th of July. There are explosions everywhere, rockets whizzing, colors shooting around. I have a few sparkler things, you know, tiny **** that spins and fizzles out. I light off two in a concrete road when no cars are there and pick up the remains and literally have a cop drive up to me and 'suggest' I go home if I know what he means. All the while children down the road are shooting fireworks at each other. I'm hating it here too with all the ******** control that's going on. America is not free anymore in the slightest.

It's not really no one taking a glance. More of what are you gonna do about it? One guy with a briefcase can wipe out the town I live in with a little drone in a day. There's such a hard on for gun control you can't get a puny little pistol with more than two mags. They have bullet proof humvees with remote controlled turrets so they don't even have to expose themselves as defense. Our military is just too damn powerful and massive four our population to rise up against it.

We don't need to literately fight all we need is someone who is smart enough and brave enough to stand up, and we need to back him up. someone like snowden, that has enough knowledge of the law to use it against the governement. of course you are right this won't happen without something similar to a civil war, which will be everyone against big business who is fine with what they have. I mean **** doesn't it say in the constitution if the people believe the government is overstepping its boundaries it is the duty of the citizens to stand up against it? its just that no one wants to in fear of being eliminated and ostracized

Not all of them, no. They are still people though and people can be monsters. With a military as large as ours if you took out all the good sensible people and left in the ones that'd do it just to kill or keep their lifestyle. I'm still predicting very sizable numbers with equipment the give one man the power to take down a whole militia.

Our military isn't even a million strong less that 2% being actual combat troops, now let's say even 10 percent of americans decide to fight, that's a 30 million man army plus defectors from the military and their equipment, we could attack with sticks and win.

Today's fighting seems to be mostly drone strikes though. Unmanned planes to shoot rockets down on cities. I would assume they'd use those if they ever decided to quell the local populace

Drone strikes are reknowned for causing collateral damage, the only place you'd be able to use them would be extremely rural places, after a few civilians get blown the **** up that's just going to increase the resistance.

authorities wasting their time on stupid **** like this. instead, they should charge under-aged girls with spreading of minor pornography for posting naked pictures of themselves online. that should decrease the number of sluts drastically.

what i meant was if the government wants to charge someone with a felony over the stuff he/she does over the internet, it better be something like charging someone with under-age pornography possession/spreading. in this society, girls see a lot of sex-symbols. the media enforces them to believe that in order to be beautiful they must be sexy. this leads to girls dressing up in clothing that is too mature for them, that reveals to much skin etc. which leads to them posting their naked pictures online just to be accepted. this causes the girls look "easy" or more "approachable" by boys, i used "slut" in the comment as a synonym. anyways, if government wants to take actions we do over the internet seriously, they should start with something that is in fact an issue. by stopping girls from becoming too sexy, government can stop potential rise number of pedophiles, thus preventing future crime.

OOOOOOOH
haha, sorry I'm a bit slow ^^
To be fair, the fact that there's a kid locked up for making a joke online when there's thousands of images of half-naked 14 year olds floating around is pretty horrendous.
It is really sad though, how the media has manipulated an entire generation into thinking that they're not good enough and never will be unless they're 10/10 and are prepared to bare all..
Now that it makes more sense to me, that's a very ******* good point. An irrelevant point, but a good point all the same. Especially when pedophiles are so damn easy to catch >;o

there will always be "sluts" my friend. without sluts boys will not be able to recognize the good proper girls, and they will never mature (love-relationship wise) and learn that personality is more important than body. I do not have a problem with sluts who are 18 and older. it is just seeing a 13 or 14 year old girl acting like a porn star disgusts me and makes me sad for the future generation of women.
punishing a girl for being a slut is like prohibiting abortion (without religious aspect of killing a fetus). it is their body and they should be able to do whatever they want to...but only once they turn 18.
