Reason #1 to never make threats on the internet

You may think you are safe, but as this guy found out, your words could indeed land you in jail.


[QUOTE]A California man accused of posting comments on ESPN's website saying he was watching kids and wouldn't mind killing them was in jail Tuesday on $1 million bail after he was arrested for investigation of making terrorist threats, authorities said.

Several guns were found Monday at the home of former Yale University student Eric Yee, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Steve Low.

Yee was arrested after the sports network ESPN reported threatening posts were made in a reader response section to an online ESPN story on Thursday about new Nike sneakers named after LeBron James that cost $270 a pair. Some of the nearly 3,000 reader comments on the story talked about children possibly getting killed over the sneakers because of how expensive they are, said ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys.

"What he was posting had nothing to do with sports," Soltys said Tuesday. "We closely monitor the message boards and anytime we get a threat, we're alerting law enforcement officials."[/QUOTE]

So I guess the Obama administration must be spying on people instead of fixing the economy. LOL

When you threaten somebody, it no longer becomes a "thought".

Also, this:

[quote] First off, the comments were made in ESPN's private property, which means ESPN does indeed have the right to regulate them.

Well, was it a overkill with the million dollar bail? Most definitely. However, in these days, you really shouldn't be joking about going homicidal on kids given the circumstances. What if they didn't do anything, and this guy goes out and kills a bunch of people? THen we'd be wanting to string up ESPN for being negligent.

Stupid ass comment. ESPN notified the authorities.

"[I]Wouldn't mind killing them...[/I]" isn't a threat. It's far from even being a statement of intent. ESPN are to be applauded for their monumental efforts at arse covering.

I 'wouldn't mind' a well-crafted Vodka Martini at Yard House tomorrow during the game but will probably settle for a Blue Moon instead.
