So far he spent 4 months in jail with a bond of $500,000 and is facing years in prison. For a comment he said on Facebook. I agree the comment posted is very messed up and was at the wrong time. But no evidence was found in his house nor intent to go though with his threat. 

 

 

I still think it went to far, just for a comment to be put in jail and a huge bond. What do you guys and gals think?

He is an idiot for posting something like that. A threat is a threat no matter where or how it is said, and it is not the first time an online comment gets someone in trouble. Maybe if more people had IQ's higher then room temperature it wouldn't happen as often.

No remorse here.

True, he was stupid for posting something like that. It was "distasteful and thoughtless" as the article says. I do think it went to far. It was clearly a joke and jokes like these go around everyday on every social networking site. I mean, people make threats all the time on XBox Live and PSN! It's the internet. Still, it was idiotic of him to say that. Just be careful what you pt out on the internet. It could get you put in prison with a $500,000 fine.

So people are cool with him being punished for being sarcastic?

 

Cant belive some people think this can be taken for a real threat after he said lol, and jk which are pretty universal terms in this day in age.

Anyone who really believe he was serious is an idiot. While going a bit too far it's something that a lot of people could say in the heat of the moment. Thank God I don't live in the land of the free

 

Also, this is why the internet needs a sarcastic font.

Do you really think this response was appropriate?

All that SHOULD have been done was a quick drop by by the cops to ask a few questions if some really felt it was a serious threat. Anything more than that is lunacy.
