A Texas teen faces up to eight years in prison after making a comment on Facebook about shooting up "a school full of kids." Deputies in Comal County, Texas, charged then-18-year-old Justin Carter with making "terroristic threats" — a third-degree felony — in March. According to the Comal County Jail, he's been behind bars since March 27, unable to make his $500,000 bail.

And had he instead made a comment to shoot up an entire village of Muslims in the middle east? No bother would have been given. Because, it has to be understood by all, thats not "terrorism".

Someone on the game "Runescape" was sentenced to jail for threatening to blow up buildings, after having been mocked by other players. When the incarcerated teen threatened to perform such actions, the immediate answer from another player was "Knock Knock".


It's one thing to be cautious and arrest people for making such remarks, but another to sentence them. Pretty soon, I'm sure you wont be able to greet someone named Jack at an airport.

Eight years is a bit too harsh. Would have been ok with 3-6 months. Amerifail people are cowards by nature. They are too attached to this world so they can't afford to die by the hands of shooters. Thats why you see them using drones for attacks instead of real fighter pilots. Cowards.
