@Tasuki: read through the first couple pages of this thread, man — i'm in the same camp on this as you. I can absolutely understand why the authorities would have brought him in and how they couldn't ignore something like that given the climate surrounding that statement and where he lived at that point in time. I believe that there are some things you do not 'joke' about for any reason, and iirc i was the first person in this thread to say they doubted he'd get the full 8 years if convicted.

however, you're talking like he did kill a bunch of kids at an elementary school, and he didn't. he said something about doing so and may or may not have had plans, we have no idea. whether he meant it and was preparing to do so will come out in the court sessions, I'm sure, but you sitting there calling him a 'spoiled brat' for being depressed and on suicide watch while sitting in jail pisses me off because that's exactly how a rational human being should feel while incarcerated and unsure of their eventual fate. I'm reacting to your remark about him being a brat, nothing more. It can take forever to get through a court case like this, and in the meantime you're having to deal with the strain of not accidentally pissing off your for-real-crazy cellmate(s), accidentally making eye contact with a cranky guard, knowing full well the hell your family and loved ones are going through while you're sitting behind bars. If he wasn't showing signs of depression, remorse, or fear, there really would be a problem with this guy.

Being in jail isn't the same as being put in the corner after pushing your little sister into a puddle, it's not a slap on the bottom and a chuckle from mom or dad as you're told not to run through your neighbor's flower beds again. Jail is a horrible place filled with people who both have and have not done that of which they are accused. it's a place where bad people can and do make worse things happen — from both sides of the bars. Also, we have no idea that he is 'crying' or 'whining'. We know nothing whatsoever about his behavior in jail except that he's apparently depressed and on suicide watch (which could be for a myriad of reasons), so for you to call him names like that when he's already in the system and being handled just seems disgraceful.

In other news, i've banned the troll and purged his content. Hopefully you all paid attention to Raylax instead of making a huge confusing mess of replies to that person.

@Tasuki: It's very easy to stand there in the 'i'm living a spotless life' mindset, to point fingers and levy blame upon other people when the damage is already done and they're already enduring the consequences of whatever it is they've done. i can only hope you don't have to eat your words one day, and if you do, that someone is compassionate enough to not tapdance on your suffering on a random internet forum.

Oh and he's on suicide watch. So for everyone thinking he has mental problems, there's your prison rehabilitation at work. I'm sure he'll be a fully functioning, sane member of society after some time hating the world and wanting to die.

So he's hating the world for being punished for something he did wrong?

Sounds like a spoiled child if you ask me.

do you even know what jail is like? or life spent dealing with the justice system for the families involved? i can absolutely understand the reasons he was brought in, especially given the climate involved, but i can also understand his depression and why he would want to die in there. show some compassion, for goodness' sake; it's just a craptastic situation overall. >:/

from what i read, his bond has been set at 500,000, and his parents can't afford it as-is, so his lawyer is saying he's going to meet with the judge to see if he can't get it reduced for them so they can at least get him out of jail while his case proceeds through the court system.

@rayword45: I've already mentioned it was a Facebook comment, not in-game chatter. It had to do with a public FB community, so that's probably where she came from.

He could be 103. Judging his intent on how he said he was kidding seems ill-advised. We can't assume he was serious about the killing part, but not serious about the kidding part, because we take issue with his grammar.

We can't really assume anything either way, about either portion of the statement. was the 'j/k lol' an honest statement of his mental state at the time he wrote the 'threat' statement, or was it a hasty coverup to throw off people who may have chosen to take him this seriously in that post-Newtown-shooting point in time? It's for the court system to decide now.

You're right about the 'agree to disagree' part of your comment, i'm afraid. i'd give you a friendly ':3', but the seriousness of this topic kinda doesn't warrant it, i don't think :(

also, k8sMum is right — we have no way here at NL to edit comments without showing that 'edited by' line at the bottom. unless you were trying to make a joke regarding your own lack of getting that part in before hitting the 'reply' button? nm, must've been accidentally deleted before i started looking for that particular 'edited by' line it seems :3

I think the bottom line in this situation is that parents need to teach their children that Facebook (and the internet in general) is not just something fun, it's a double-edged sword and can be quite dangerous. It can be used for good things, it can be used for bad. you can use it, or it can use you.

when your real name and personal information is involved, you don't start showing your rear end making horrible 'jokes' like you're AnonymousGuy1337 on some random forum (not to say that it would be okay there either, but ffs, common sense!). everything you say publicly (and sometimes not publicly) on FB and the rest of the internet absolutely can and will be used against you if someone has the inclination and/or opportunity to do so, so choose to be a jerk and play the fool at your own risk. :/

all right, now i've read through a couple other sources stating that what went down was an argument on Facebook where the threat (joking or not) was posted. That part had confused me, because I was wondering how a random Canadian woman would be able to find out particulars about a person via in-game information. this wasn't a chat log, it was FB comments.

No offense, but that school shooting was absolutely everywhere during that time. everywhere. If he was only playing his game during that time, i could totally see him being absolutely unaware of what was going on in the world, but i'll be damned if i couldn't blink for weeks without seeing a new post about the school shooting come up on my FB feed back then. He would have had to have been blind to have had no knowledge of the school shooting. i can't fault the lady for having reported it after what she discovered, nor can i fault the authorities for taking the threat seriously at that point in time. He said the absolute wrongest thing possible and is paying the extreme price for his lack of tact.

as The_Shpyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy has so helpfully lawyer'd, again, i can't see him getting the full 8 years he's potentially facing, especially if he's a first-time offender.

hey guys, do us a favor and stop with the profanity, please — we do understand it's a touchy sort of topic, but that doesn't give you all carte blanche to haul off and let fly. :/

that said, I do agree with k8sMum: I'm sure the media and local townsfolk would be furious had the kid been serious, it's easy enough for him to complain now that he was just kidding when he's been caught by the authorities. he'll get a much lighter sentence than the media is letting on (if anything — he could wind up with just probation and time served, y'know) and that'll be that.

it depends. on a normal day, i usually fall asleep by 10 or 11-ish and am up anywhere between 3:30-5 am if I work job#1 those days, but Friday-Saturday-Sunday i don't get home until after 10, so on those days i'm usually passed out anywhere between 12-2 am and am again up around 5-ish to get to job#1 on time, again if i work it those days or not (i have shifts at job#1 four or five days a week usually). Sundays are my only day off from job#2, so some weeks i'll get home from job#1 and straight-up pass out until 9 or 10 at night, or even sleep straight through. it sucks, because that's the only day i really have to go shopping and/or get stuff done :(

when you're an adult, your sleep schedule largely depends on your work schedule u___u
