    An overreaction based on an irrational fear of firearms in the hands of civilians.......why does that surprise anybody?

    Sarcasm does not translate well in text... especially for cops apparently.

    well, it could have been worse.. it could have been a pop tart fashioned into a gun ( Maryland).. or an NRA t-shirt (W. Virginia)

    the authorities, across the land, have lost their ****ing minds.

    Or a screwdriver left in the bed of a student's truck in a school parking left (I still shake my head over that one ten years later).

    You shouldn't write "I'm going to shoot up a school" anywhere. Saying something like that isn't "trivial". He shouldn't have been jailed, but he's a dumb****,

    Um, no. I'm pretty sure it was based in the line, "I'm going to shoot up a school."

    It is not just the "terrorism" thing but also the anti-bullying people who want to criminalize words. It is one thing if some sort of action is taken to coincide with threats, but when there is no action taken it is just words on a screen which you can turn off any time it offends you. If the police want to investigate I can understand that. When they found no guns or plans to carry out the attack they should have simply given up. Also, shouldn't they be ticketing the person who reported this for filing an obviously false report which has wasted the time of authorities and the resources of the state? I do hope the kid gets some compensation for this through some civil suits and i hope some of that money comes from the twats who reported the obvious sarcasm out of spite.

    You just wrote you were going to shoot up a school, and I am pretty sure no one should be worried about that, unless you are correct and then someone should probably tell the FBI.

    I remember a story about Denmark when the Germans occupied it in the war. Jews were told to wear a yellow Star of David and most of the Danish citizens wore one, too. Might be a myth, but it's an attractive one.
    So I think we should all shoot up a school and eat their still-beating hearts.

    A tortured spin put on a story to try to advance a threadbare agenda- why does that surprise anybody?
