They should make an example of him - I'd like to think it would help people to think a bit before they type things online, but judging by the recent "ReadWriteWeb / Facebook" spectacle that day is a long long way away.
I just wonder sometimes if people read or watch tv. It seems like people should know better by now but then again your dealing with people. Who knows why they do the things they do!! I just don't get it sometimes, but good for him for getting caught. Was it really worth it dude!!
The coutless amount of times I have said "OH how i wish Rogers/______* would just blow up and do us all a favour" on msn/to my friends... I guess I am just lucky they dont monitor or dont act on what is said on those conversations... or I would be in big trouble.. :O
A few years back, the london police gave chase, detained and then shot over a dozen times at a brazilian tourist that they thought looked suspicious.
That is paranoia for you. Still think the cop's actions were justified by "terrorism"?
[citation][nom]kingnoobe[/nom]You're all just as stupid as this guy is. You all should be lined up and freaking hung. Like logitic said everytime somebody gets arrested for some stupid shit like this the terrorist simply get another one up on us. It's just completely outlaw everything, and give away all of our freedoms in the name of security. Retards.[/citation]
Yes what logitic said makes sense. The moron that got arrested should have used a bit of common sense before posting something like that.
What you posted does not make any sense.
I don't like having freedoms taken away any more than the next person, but give me a break. With all of the crazy stuff that has been happening lately, you think that people SHOULD be posting that kind of stuff? Sorry, but that puts you in the same stupidity range as the guy that got arrested.
Here is an idea. Before people exercise their right to free speech, they should at least THINK about recent events that could cause their pointless babble to be taken seriously. People are crazy, and you can't expect the police to be able to distinguish between a crazy person and a person that is just trying to make a not-so-funny joke.
For instance, I attend the University of Texas @ Austin. Yesterday some crazy dude went on a suicide mission and flew a freaking plane into an IRS building. For what? Because he hates the government that's why. No one out there could have predicted this guy was completely crazy.
