Texas teen makes violent joke during video game, is jailed for months
The Daily Caller ^ | 06/27/2013 | Robby Soave

Texas teenager who has been in jail since March faces an eight-year prison sentence because of a threatening joke he made while playing an online video game.

In February, Justin Carter was playing “League of Legends” — an online, multiplayer fantasy game — when another player wrote a comment calling him insane. Carter’s response, which he now deeply regrets, was intended as joke.

Meanwhile, those who covered up Benghazi, and covered
up the ignoring of warnings of the Boston Atrocity,
and have helped terrorists from INSIDER THE USA,
are waking free.

Though it hasnt been declared outright there have been more than a few people jailed or put on trial for things theyve said which is a viloation of First Amendment rights. 0’bummer must be working overtime for his dark overlord lately.

He didn’t say he was going to shoot the kids, rather he said he was going to shoot up the school.

Then he said he was going to eat their still beating hearts. So obviously he didn’t kill them with a gun. So, if the anti-gun nuts are wee-weed up, they can relax. N gun deaths threats here.

Now I don’t know if threatened cannibalism is a terrorist act or not. Congress will have to pass another law to cover that.

He 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,” said Jack Carter, Justin’s father, in a statement to a local news channel.

It was clearly a sarcastic response. He even said just kidding after saying that!

Meanwhile, all sorts of violent criminals are on the street on parole.

Anarcho-tyranny exemplified.

Jokes are not jokes. It’s the words that count. Doesn’t matter if you don’t mean them (unless you’re a certified leftist)

If you write something or say something you will be prosecuted for it.

If you accidentally leave out the word “NOT” it doesn’t matter. The prosecutors need to get their numbers up. Doesn’t matter if you had no violent intentions.

Meanwhile, the “legal justice system” does all it can to release REAL criminals on to the streets.

Another beat down on a rambunctious young man>>>> Note that the person who reported him to authorities was a Canadian woman who took the time to determine he lived near an elementary school

I see female-nanny staters versus young men and boys same as feeding them ritalin to chill them out (yes I know sometimes ritalin is justified)

This kind of talk is mild compared to what is usually joked about in online games.

They said our son had ADD in 3rd grade and wanted to put him on Ritalin. Mr. M asked what percentage of children have ADD and the school counselor said 49% of boys. Mr. M said, “Then it’s normal.” We dealt with it with out drugs. A little adrenalin maybe but only what his body produced naturally.

Then the police arrest him a MONTH later. They must have been really concerned about him to wait a whole month.

Part of the war on boys. Boys who have energy to spare. In our more agricultural age he would have chores to keep him busy and get him worn out. The kind of stuff that charges the male batteries and makes girls- women want to know them

We were confronted with a similar situation with our daughter and drugs were strongly recommended. We fought and changed schools. Her GPA went up 2 points the first marking period and she was happy.

Some teachers are simply psychotic masochists who want to feast on the self esteem of children. Others actually teach.

Austin, Tx. Nuff said.

“In light of recent situations, statements such as the one Justin made are taken seriously,” said an Austin police detective in a statement.

Only when it helps their anti constitutional agenda.
LaRAZA can talk about and promote the violent takeover of
the southwest all day if they like. Primitives can get on
twitter and talk about “killin a cracker” if Zimmerman
gets off.

Austin. True Texans try to forget it even exists. Defiantly
the most over priced and worthless real estate in the state
and only a fool would pay that price to live there.
Austonians aren’t really Texans. They are just transplants
from the arm pits of liberal society.

As a former Prosecutor, I’d laugh at anyone suggesting to me that I should charge this kid. This is absurd.

Has anyone take the time to track down the address of the Canadien woman in order to determine if she is a threat to freedom?

Then why are they not tracking down and jailing the scum making terrorist threats on twitter against whites if GZ is not convicted?

Your calender may show 2013 but we are living in "1984"

In 2013, amidst Obama's dystopia, I wish it was the real 1984, a time when Reagan won 49 states, the malaise of Jimmy Carter was a fading memory, people proudly waved American flags in the street as the Olympic torch passed by, the TSA wasn't harassing airline passengers, school children weren't being punished for playing cops and robbers, and policemen weren't going around shooting pet dogs.
