Teen Justin Carter Jailed In Texas After Making Sarcastic Threat In Facebook Comment
In jail since Feb for something so trivial? This is terrifying that you can be imprisoned for an obvious joke. If you applied this same standard to everyone on the internet... tens of thousands would be in jail.Earlier this year, Carter and a friend got into an Facebook argument with someone regarding "League of Legends," an online video game with notoriously die-hard fans. Justin's father, Jack, explained to ABC local affiliate KVUE that at the end of the conversation "[s]omeone had said something to the effect of 'Oh you're insane, you're crazy, you're messed up in the head,’ to which [Justin] replied 'Oh yeah, I'm real messed up in the head, I'm going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts,’ and the next two lines were lol and jk [all sic]."
The authorities involved in this are evil jerks that should be stripped of their power and up on charges.
