Another mass shooting threat arrested

This is getting ridiculous. I can’t believe people are standing by and watching people get arrested for speech. It’s making me wonder why we even have a constitution. Or why we have a Supreme Court or why we have a congress? Is this all a dog and pony show or do we really believe in our rights?

I see the concern but I don’t know why we go straight to an arrest with charges of terroristic threats. I think it would be better to maybe put them on a probationary period or a search warrant to see if there’s any other proof he was truly planning on such things.

I’m not a huge fan of arresting people for a moment of passionate speech on a subject. Specially if he deleted it on his own accord

My opinion if you’re making death threats your ass ought to be arrested!

Many people feel like that and I won’t say you’re wrong. Many people enjoy thinking that safer is better and maybe it is. I just think it’s better to go about it a different way.

And yet, all these rappers can make songs about killing whitey or killing cops, and that’s just peachy?

I still think that’s okay too. Trust me though, I’m not a fan of the American black culture or their music. But will I defend their rights? Yes because their rights are also mine.

I wasn’t saying it’s not Okay. Just saying how is that different than someone saying they want to kill someone out of passion for something?

Lol I see your irony. And why wasn’t that comedian arrested for the trump decapitated head? Or why wasn’t Snoop Dog arrested for his threat? Who was that lady that threatened to blow up the White House? Oh yeah Madonna.

Haha good point, why are they all sliding by on this?

Thanks. Nah, I hate arguing. I’ll stick to engineering. But these are dots anyone should be able to connect.

Funny, I’m sitting in a warehouse this very moment with a bunch of lawyers doing an inspection on a computer that caught fire in someone’s house. Seems the homeowners policy paid the damages and is now suing every company that had a component installed in that computer. I’m here as a ‘subject matter expert ‘. Everyone is already planning to just settle and split the cost. The insurance company gets their money back because it’s too expensive to fight it. There’s at least 30 people here. The cost in time for all these people today alone is more than the insurance company paid out. It’s all a big game.

^ This is me at my job. If the SME you display is for “subject matter expert”. Sometimes I hate being the go-to for information. Occasionally in my head I utter “why don’t you just look it up yerself”. But then I realize I’m disgruntled. Haha. :face_vomiting:
