18 year old Texan Justin Carter was arrested and faces charges of terroristic threats because of what his father calls a sarcastic comment he made in a argument over facebook with a fellow League of Legends player. Justin could be placed behind bars for 8 years.

League of Legends (LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game that averages over 12 million players worldwide per day.

Carters comment came as a result of in game controversy.

“Someone had said something to the effect of ‘Oh you’re insane, you’re crazy, you’re messed up in the head,’ to which 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,’” recalled Justin’s dad Jack.

“The next two lines were lol and jk.”

A women in Canada noticed the comment, tracked down Carters address and notified police.

Justin’s parents have created a petition for the release of their son who is now jailed. The petition argues that their sons first amendment was violated and that anti-terrorism laws are jailing innocent people.

Read petition here.

In a similar case, former marine Brandon Raub was detained for ‘anti-government’ posts that he made over facebook last year.

There are plenty other examples of arrest’s over posting made on social media:

A Methuen Teen’s Facebook Status Has Kept Him in Jail for Three Weeks
 
Oregon Teen, Posts Facebook Status About Drunk Driving, Gets Arrested 

Anti-terrorism laws are taking away the common sense, innocent until proven guilty principle and throwing it in the trash.

Justin Carter, by simply exercising his rights to speak freely, is now a criminal.

If the NSA spying revelation’s weren’t enough to get you to disconnect from social media platforms such as facebook, this case and those that are linked above should certainly spark consideration.

This situation highlights how the freedom on speech is no more in America.

    No, it wasn’t a sarcastic remark. He was making terrorist threats. He deserves whatever he gets.

      Barn Cat,
      You deserve far worse. STFU and grow up.
      You want terrorism, you’re making another one right there: someone who now has NO future due to arrest (let alone conviction), and will likely end up far harder and inhuman as a result of this crap.

      You CANNOT legislate morality. You CANNOT force good judgement. You can only punish people, “as an example.”

      remember, there are people who want to make an example OF YOU.

    The woman from Canada is cleary a dumb bitch. Even more stupid is that this has gone as far as it has. What kind of future for kids? Hopeless.
