Give it time, it'll be a first degree felony soon enough, Subby.

It depends. Kentucky law defines 3 degrees of terrorisric threats.

Class C Felony if in the first degree

Class D Felony if in the second degree

He is charged with this one:

Class A Misdemeanor if in the third degree

And really, do you think anyone takes his threats seriously?

Sounds like Southwest departing lounge got some free entertainment with their flight today.

I think when we write the history of America's decline we will be able to point at the fact that our response to a terrorist attack was to make some laws about terroristic threats, just to ensure the terrorists knew that they had effectively terrorised.

They probably knew that of all the people in the airport he was probably the least likely to be a terrorist. I think terrorists have their shiat together a little more then that. Besides, anyone really think Grady from Sanford and Son could be a terrorist?

well that's just terrorific

I'm not worried about terrorists who shout out threats. It's those sneaky bastards who blow up something without telling anyone I don't like.

Scary? Someone's mommy doesn't let him out very often.

From the comments:
"He was probably upset because he didn't get his free Obama tickets."

Is Drew drinking at the airport again?

This is the kind of crap that was easily predictable when the "terrorist" laws were en vogue to enact.

The guy is an idiot, Southwest should just ban the guy from flying their airline, make the guy pay a fine and move on.

The only threats to security at the airports is the TSA.

Happy Hours: Kentucky law


We could insert something about allowing hayseed's to go off in a harmless manner, but I think more and more DA's are getting tired of taking shiat from the TSA.
 
2013-03-12 10:58:57 AM
I believe this falls under the "sticks and stones" rules of law.

Clearly this man was not beaten properly as a child

508.080
Terroristic threatening in the third degree.
(1)Except as provided in KRS 508.075 or 508.078, a person is guilty of terroristic threatening in the third degree when:
(a)He threatens to commit any crime likely to result in death or serious physical injury to another person or likely to result in substantial property damage to another person; or
(b)He intentionally makes false statements for the purpose of causing evacuation of a building, place of assembly, or facility of public transportation.
(2)Terroristic threatening in the third degree is a Class A misdemeanor.

Effective:June 21, 2001
History:Amended 2001 Ky. Acts ch.113, sec.3, effective June 21, 2001.--Created1974 Ky. Acts ch. 406, sec.72, effective January 1, 1975.


So, into law before 9/11, and it covers pretty much every single wild pissed-off threat regardless of merit.

When police arrived, they allegedly found 59-year-old Raymond H. Hinkle, a man they say they recognized from previous incidents at the airport.

So he's the airport drunk?

Texas prosecutor here.  "Terroristic Threat" is just the statute title for threatening someone.  Doesn't mean that you're a terrorist or that you made a threat like a terrorist, only that you made a threat involving violence.  It sounds a lot more grandiose than it actually is.

Which terrorist attack are you talking about?

From the above link to the misdemeanor law:

Effective: June 21, 2001
History: Amended 2001 Ky. Acts ch. 113, sec. 3, effective June 21, 2001. -- Created

He's had it with those money flying cops on this plane place.
 
2013-03-12 11:36:35 AM
Terroristic threats just means you threatened to kill or hurt someone. It has nothing to with terrorism.
 
2013-03-12 11:54:01 AM
So he was advocating political change through violence?  The word "terrorism" is a joke these days.  Shoplift?  You're a terrorist.  Pee on a sidewalk?  Terrorist.  It's like the commie scare or a literal witch hunt.
 
2013-03-12 12:15:48 PM
Sticks and stones ya'll.  No touch, no manner to implement the threat, no foul.
 
2013-03-12 12:34:29 PM
"Terroristic threatening" does not refer to the type of terrorism you think it does. Reading the article, I'd say it has nothing to do with being in the airport, and everything to do with making threats to the policemen that were intended to instill terror; i.e., fear of impending harm. It's a misdemeanor because talk is cheap.
 
2013-03-12 12:45:17 PM
Thank the gods the brave folk in the TSA were there to take care of this potentially dangerous situation...
 
2013-03-12 01:22:04 PM
Yeah, a misdemeanor punishable by drone strike, as long as you are outside the US.

CraicBaby: Terroristic threats just means you threatened to kill or hurt someone. It has nothing to with terrorism.


They don't charge people with "terrorist threats" by simply threatening someone, even a cop. It must have been because it was in an airport.

Thank goodness he was not a student in an elementary school or he'd be on 'zero tolerance' death row by now.

Fraidy Cat: Oooh, scary, scary TERRORISTS!   Please Mr. Government Man, please protect me from those SCARY TERRORISTS!!

Govt Man: OK, but it'll cost ya.

FC: I'll pay ANYTHING to keep away the scary terrorists.

GM: How about your FREEDOM and your TAXES, then?

FC: DEAL!!!

So is it true that in Texas, "he needed killin'" is an affirmative defense to murder?
