    Poor kid... it's getting so you can't threaten a man's life any more without getting a criminal record.

    Look at this as a favor to the little douche bag. The next guy he threatened to kill could have been the next Bernhard Goetz.


    Wow, you certainly like to imagine things are being said that aren't actually being said. LOL!
    Yeah, silly me... you rush in to defend the little thug as if it's just kids being kids... how ever could I have misconstrued that?

    What happens to someone when they are threated to be killed? Is anything even attempted?

    Ok, so actions have consequences. He is about to find out that the justice system that protects him from crimes born out of hatred, also apply to him.

    Hitting him with hate crime charges is way overboard imo.
    Why? Surely you would agree that a group of white Jews, or just white guys doing the same thing to a black guy on the train would be eligible right? So why not in the inverse?

    Having a felony on your record is a terrible starting place.
    The time to think about that would be before the crime is committed....

    I don't care about "fixing" anything. It's what he'd deserve.

    That is a terrorist threat and it is ilegal, however they did not charge him with that.

    If they didn't do anything and later he did kill the guy, the pólice department would have been held liabel for the action as the suspect said he was going to do it.

    Absolutely. Very few actually think that the girl taunting the police as they do their job, or the original guy threatening the Jewish man, and stealing his cell phone, did anything wrong....I don't know whether it is hatred of Jews in this case, or that kind of selfish, OWS mindset that people like this see something they want, and decide its ok to just take it.

    I saw a trailer for a new movie coming out soon, that sums it up pretty good...

    I disagree. The situation quickly moved from being some punk kid talking smack to an entirely different level, i.e., "communicating a threat," the moment the teen threatened to kill an innocent passenger on a public commuter train before several witnesses to boot. A stupid act for sure!

    Perhaps the judge will let him off with a warning due to his age, the fact that he didn't follow through with his threat (with ample time to do it until the train reached its next stop) and the fact that the situation didn't truly become violent until the police arrived on the scene. That's when things turned ugly.

    I wouldn't have dismissed it. Sometimes, you just have to teach the nuckleheads a lesson. In this case, let the young man stand before a judge. If he has no priors, community service w/6-months probation oughta do it.
