OtherLittleGuy: But is getting raped? Because, you know, everyone in prison should be raped as part of their incarceration.

/but who rapes the rapists?

I heard the interview on NPR this morning. It's ridiculous the parents are blaming the Internet "subculture" regarding trash-talking.

What says more about this case is the kid is 19, living at home, and appears to be socially immature for his age. Since it's Texas of course they threw him in prison. Therapy and community service would have been the best option for this kid so he can understand the differences between threatening to kill children and teabagging your mom.

/my 2 cents

PanicAttack: between threatening to kill children and teabagging your mom.

The kid is 19, has full time employment and an employer willing to keep his position open for him, and had his own apartment.

Oh thank god, PanicAttack. I was getting worried that at 150 posts nodody had biatched about a 19 year old living with his parents (apparently not though) yet, on fark.

cameroncrazy1984: Rurouni: Folks. I challenge you:

Go to an airport and at the security checkpoints, loudly announce that you have a bomb or that you're going to shoot up the terminal. Then follow that up by "haha JK for reals". See where that gets you.

Saying JK doesn't absolve you from your previous retarded statements. I do agree that this is heavy handed justice in the extreme. I still think this kid was being a stupid little shiat - but at most he should have just gotten a slap on the wrist...or I don't know, one of those scared straight specials where inmates scream at you and stuff.

Facebook is not an airport?


Shhh...he's trying to make a point.
 
2013-07-03 12:39:51 PM

FarknGroovn: The article says that they stripped him down and threw him in solitary.  I have a feeling that this is not the type of thing that happens when you behave yourself.


It was because of depression after repeated beatings, dumbass.
Suicide watch.
 
2013-07-03 12:54:11 PM
"He's been put in solitary confinement, nude, for days on end because he's depressed."

Saying stupid shiat like this just blows your credibility all to hell.
 
2013-07-03 12:57:33 PM

Madbassist1: Oh BS. they arrested him, searched his house found no weapons, no plans, no intent whatsoever. If you're ok with living in an age where you can be thrown in jail for a long period of time solely over shiat you post on Facebook, why dont you just move to China, subby?

This is a goddamned travesty and I hope the kid gets rich of it.


I was thinking the same thing, except the getting rich part. Don't enable dumbasses to continue their ways but get him out and call it time served... He's learned his lesson and has been made an example of.

Better point: Assault is not actually part of our legal system as I understand it.

Justice By Zig: Madbassist1: Justice By Zig: A threat is a threat, regardless of the forum.

This is blatantly false, dude. Why do you lie so?

How is that a lie? Or will you just resort to name calling again, rather than exercise your brain? Which is what this kid should have done.


I absolutely, 100% agree that you are techically correct. White is white, black is black, and a threat is a threat. Welcome to tautology land. Enjoy all your wanker neighbors.

But its not true that words that constitute a threat in one context always constitute a threat, even in a different context. It's good that you didn't make that claim, because anyone who would say something like that is stupid.

no specific school, no weapons, no plan... where's the evidence?

the kid said something stupid, nothing more.  If he wasnt serious about an act of violence before, i'm sure he is now.

way to go texas

And next time some jackass goes and kills a school, you and a million more will find his comments and scream about why no one did anything before he did it.
 
2013-07-03 03:42:43 PM
The same people who are biatching about arresting him would be going completely nuts if he made this same post and then went and followed up on his threat after the cops didn't do anything about it.

To hear you guys talk about it, terrorists don't need to hide until after they've blown crap up.  They can talk about it openly until then because until the BOOM, it doesn't count.

You are a piss ant cocksucker who thinks it's OK to threaten kindergarteners.

That's pretty messed up.  I think the kid just made some poorly thought out angry remarks.  I don't think he was serious.  I do think prison should be a form of punishment, but he hasn't even gone to trial yet let alone been convicted and even so, beatings by other prisoners falls outside of the scope of sentencing and should be considered cruel and unusual.  If prison officials cannot ensure the safety of prisoners, there's something seriously wrong.

He's probably a pretty normal kid and sending him to prison isn't keeping anyone safe or doing him any good.  I would release him and maybe send him to a shrink who could probably confirm that he just said some off the cuff shiat.

Exactly, better we jail as many innocents as possible lest one guilt go free.

We need to start rounding up people who joke about all crimes.

"Eh, some punk-ass kid made a gamer-type joke on Facebook. We'd better lock him up before somebody biatches about it. And we'd better set the bail high before the 'Think of the Children!!!!!' brigade marches in."

Maybe he'll choose his words better next time. You don't joke about mass murdering small children and eating their hearts. That's beyond frakked up. He's probably just sad, because he can't play League of Legends while in jail. A little sympathy? Sure. A lottle sympathy? Nope. I do think the bail is a travesty.

If you want to play my way read the thread before commenting. Why waste my time covering every asinine point in your ridiculous post when it has all been covered before...several times.

So...just cut to the chase. Saves us both precious time.

I did a Ctrl-F for Madbasist, and it appears he's either a troll or too stupid to carry on a normal conversation.  So I'll farky you as "stupid troll" and ignore your incoherence in the future.
 
2013-07-04 08:09:46 PM
Where are the prison/jail guards? I'm guessing the answer is they're not there because it's more profitable to run a prison on a guard deficit, but I'm hoping I'm wrong.
