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.

Common sense is hard to come by nowadays. I mean like now everyone is labeled a terrorist and its not even fair. 						****					 happens every day. If for example 10 kids die in America everyone mourns. While every day thousands of kids in third world countries die and no one gives a second thought. This world is not perfect and they should stop trying to cover it up with 						********					 laws about terrorism and guns.

Hey, guess what? (And cue over-opinionated rant)

Nobody ******* cares about Sandy Hook anymore. People talk about it, use it as an argument for stricter gun control laws (side note: we need the government investigating and watching us MORE?), and use it as a cause for fundraisers to help the many people who have questionable mental health.

BUT NOBODY ******* CARES ANYMORE.

Seriously, I live two towns over from Sandy Hook, and here's how I viewed the whole thing:
Kids got shot?
**** , that sucks and I'm sorry for the families.
THAT WAS THE END OF IT FOR ME.

That's why it pisses me off when I see people in ******* Iowa, Kansas, California, D.C, and ******* EUROPE still talking about it like one of their own kids was killed. At this point, people only use the actions of Adam Lanza as an excuse for furthering their own goals, be it gun control, mental-health awareness, or even higher measures to add to our already ridiculous national security (looking at you, NSA; STOP FOLLOWING ME!).

Here's how I view my relationship to the whole matter: I didn't know anyone involved, there was nothing I could have done to stop it, and there's nothing I can do now to change what happened.
WHY THE **** SHOULD I CARE? Because 20 kids died? Because a few teachers did their JOBS by protecting the other students? Because of my mere proximity to where it happened?
Let me skip to the end: I don't care. I don't care now, I didn't care four months ago, and I didn't care on December 14th, 2012. Why? BECAUSE IT DIDN'T INVOLVE ME, SO THERE WAS NO REASON FOR ME TO CARE.

It happened almost seven months ago, get over it; also, be honest with yourself when you answer this question: Do you care now more than you did seven months ago? Did you care at all in the beginning?

Thumb me down, I don't give a **** . I just wanted to share my views on the subject and explain why I think people should stop being so goddamn hung up about something that happened half of a year ago.

Soon you won't be able to say "gun" or "shoot" and "children" or "school" in the same paragraph without being arrested.

Welcome to America, land of the "free".
