In Comal County, Texas, there’s a teenager who’s been in jail for almost four months because his family can’t come up with half a million dollars bail money. His crime? He made a “terroristic threat” on Facebook while joking around with a friend.
Apparently, someone in Canada saw his “threat” and reported him, so now he’s facing a felony conviction that carries an 8-year prison sentence. He’s not the first 19-year old to make a tasteless joke – this one was in response to his friend telling him he was crazy, to which he replied:
“I’m f***ed in the head alright. I think I’ma (sic) shoot up a kindergarten and watch the blood of the innocent rain down and eat the beating heart of one of them.”
