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

Generation_D: Yelnik: 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.

so you might say they were ...

trumped up charges


YEEEEAAAAAHHHHHH..............

Tigger: 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.


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
1974
Ky. Acts ch. 406, sec. 72, effective January 1, 1975.

Happy Hours: 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?



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.

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.

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.

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?
