FTFA: Stone reportedly admitted to the threats and told police he could get "yellow cake uranium from the Koreans," but that he didn't have any at the time.

Well, if you weren't such a jerk to your neighbors maybe one would have lent you a cup of yellow cake uranium. Now you're a bad neighbor and a bad host.

If you've never wanted to nuke your neighborhood, then you've never had neighbors.

His neighbors probably didn't want the slippery slope of technology investments that would have entailed. First, he begs for a cup of yellow cake uranium. Then next thing you know it, you're pooling millions with your neighbors so he can get a basic enrichment facility, and that's not even touching on the inevitable bombings from the USAF and drone strikes..

maybe he wanted to use cannabutter for his yellow cake recipe

It's a shame this guy isn't from my neck of the woods.

In Florida.

Remember, we hate cops.
This guy was probably 100% innocent and you should want him in your neighborhood.
Not cops.

But it's not his fault, he is not a violent dangerous person, he's a sick man let down by our lacking mental health system. Blame the prison-industrial complex and their lobbyists for this man not getting the help he needs.

Am I doing it right?

"Conditions of his probation include not possessing any weapons, to submit to any psychological testing ordered by the office of adult probation and if any medication is ordered that he takes it."

Lemme give ya a little hint here, Your Honor: He won't take the drugs.

At least, he won't take the drugs a psychiatrist prescribes, especially because of a court order...

You're a dumbass. If that's what you were going for, then yeah, you're doing it right.

In neither case did anyone say it wasn't their fault, or that the final blame lay anywhere else. But there's a chance that better mental health care, that if they hadn't lost track of his mail for a week, a bunch of people could still be alive. It doesn't matter that it's his fault for shooting them, it's still sad if it could have been prevented and wasn't. But here you are scoring a point for your team fighting a strawman made out of 1980's crime drama caricatures of liberals. You've gone beyond tilting at windmills to trying to engage in a battle of wits with the windmill hole at the mini-golf course. And you still lost.

Someday, people will learn the difference between an explanation (why something happened) and an excuse (why it's not someone's fault he did something). Till then, we'll have these kinds of stupid debates any time someone tries to find a root cause for why something bad happens and could it have been prevented.

Given the choice between:

a) Biker who mostly has loud bikes and active bike-mechanic seminars with the neighbours on the weekends, has kids who (with permission) play in the privacy hedge between houses, but otherwise pretty much keeps to himself and tends to not be a complete douchecanoe

AND

b) Obnoxious gardener neighbour who lives under perpetual delusion that neighbourhood is in an HOA, thinks it a capital crime if grass is not kept below two centimeters, apparently thinks we are deliberately plotting a Bunny Invasion of her marigolds, and has no sense of Private Property in all but demanding to cut down a privacy hedge (NOT EVEN ADJOINING HER PROPERTY WHICH DOES NOT ABUT HERS AT ALL) so she can see a particular flowering tree and apparently thinks it an utter capital crime that you are NOT her dead relative who was apparently a master gardener to rival the yard crew at Biltmore House

...I'll take Biker Guy over Bunny Biatch ANY day of the week. (I pretty much explicitly chose to NOT live in an HOA neighbourhood, I do keep my yard and house up to code, and even do my own gardening--veggie gardening, to be specific, and pretty much I put up fencing to deal with the rabbits seeing as they were here long before I was. :D The privacy hedge was ALSO here long before us, and kids are welcome to play in it on their side--lord knows I used to use hedges as kid-forts when I was their age; all I ask is that toys remain on their side of the hedge, and we're all good.)

I've at least never had to warn Biker Guy that this was private property and remind them this was not an HOA neighbourhood--meaning that, as an amateur radio operator, I could legally put up as high a tower as the property size and FAA regs would allow...and pointing out that I do not do so because unlike them I'm at least courteous about my fellow neighbours. :D

(Mind, I never would put up a honking huge antenna farm. That said, I did explicitly shop non-HOA neighbourhoods so that--if necessary--I could put up a nonobtrusive longwire or G5RV for HF work and a small yagi (about the size of a common TV antenna) for 2m and/or 440. :D)

"First degree threatening"? This is the first I've heard of such a charge.



A tad disappointing that bath salts aren't involved as I've grown used to reading about them. :(

Well lucklity for him, they didn't find the meth. Thats a meth story if i've ever heard one.

My idea for a new reality show- whenever someone is caught with meth, they have the option instead of doing time, to have a camera strapped to them as they go about their daily meth-life, which the higlights would be put on a kickin' prime-time tv show. Could be called meth-moirs or something of that sort.

Well, if it was just the neighborhood, a small tactical nuke would do the job. And I mean a small tactical nuke.

Hell, if he just wanted to blow up the neighborhood, a WW2 500 lb conventional bomb would probably do the trick.

Thank goodness we arrest our dissidents before they obtain nuclear capability. If only Pakistan and Iran would follow suit...

There's a lot of neighborhoods that would be improved by a nuke going off.. Especially in cities like Atlanta, Gary, Chicago, Compton, Cincinnati, etc.

As long as his nuclear weapons are of a hand held size, there should be no problem. In fact, it would be his God given right to nuke his neighborhood.

Good thing we have a munitions expert in our midst. Nuking a neighborhood can be tricky business.
