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.

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.

It seems to me that the people who over-react should be in jail. Isn't calling the police for no reason illegal?

Finding someone else's address through the internet and reporting that person to the police even though you are on a different country is perfectly normal and sane behavior.   
   
Making a joke comment that implies the person has the potential to be violent is total psycho 						****					 and needs to be sustained immediately.   
   
Yaaay logic.

who the hell stuck a giant dildo up that womans ass. Seriously you live in ******* Canada, even if you were close to the border you would still be far as **** away from Texas. I hope she feels good that possibly she ruined some poor kids life just because shes afraid her kid is going to be shot from across a damn country.

******** . "Looked up his address" after a game of League of Legends? More like a violation of privacy of the kid's rights if you ask me.
