    Mom Outraged by Son's Arrest Reportedly Knew of His Web Stardom for Phone Threats

    And now... the REST of the story....
    When a North Carolina woman accused the federal government last week of abusing the Patriot Act to imprison her teenage son for allegedly making bomb threats, the mother's allegation caused quite an uproar, including calls to free 16-year-old Ashton Lundeby.

    But a new report by Wired News suggests that, not only was the teenager an online superstar in rogue tech communities for his prank phone calls, but his mother may have known all along that the boy was conspiring with others to make bomb threats.

    Lundeby, known online as "Tyrone," allegedly had progressed into selling his services as a threatmaker, charging schoolchildren from across the country $5 apiece to place threatening, Internet-based phone calls that would cause administrators to shut down their schools, Wired News reports.

    "I heard the prank phone calls he made," his mother, Annette Lundeby, said in the Wired report. "They were really funny prank calls."

    On top of that, the U.S. Attorney's office handling the case says her story about abuse of the Patriot Act was false.

    On March 5, FBI agents took Ashton Lundeby into custody at his Oxford, N.C., home and placed him in a federal juvenile facility in Indiana, where he remains on charges he made bomb threats against Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., and other schools.

    Oh wait, what? This isn't a case of the Patriot Act being abused but rather a **** turd of a kid and his idiot mother lying for sympathy?

    Annette Lundeby admitted to Wired News that she knew Ashton had been making "really funny" prank calls, and that he'd made bomb threats, and that he'd received money for some of the calls but she said it was all just a joke.

    An Australian college student who told Wired News that he tipped off the FBI about Ashton said Annette Lundeby knew exactly what her son was doing.

    "His mother knew that he was making calls, because she'd come on the microphone when he was talking and tell him not to do any bomb threats because the house was going to get raided," the student told Wired News.

    Mother needs to be prosecuted, and tossed into the clink.

    I stayed out of the other thread on this one because it smelled fishy. I hope the little **** gets his computer gear taken and spends a good long while paying for his crimes.

    By the way, Kernal Sanders broke this on 5/8 in the other thread.

    It's been a big story in North Carolina. There's supposedly an argument or something, but I just see this as a mother being overly mother-like. Her son's demeanor does not warrant defense, nor does the accusations against him warrant her mother-Robin approach.

    Rightwing media has outrageous story, says mainstream media is suppressing the truth.

    This is not the first time this has happened...I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. This is why you don't trust news from local stations.
