When I did journalism in South Korea I would read hundreds of these type of violent comments, which were addressed to me. They were goofy and often offensive but I never thought, let's go get these folks arrested. Don't people have a right to talk stupid?

Only if you’re a liberal is it ok to talk stupid, expected in reality.

Texas is police state.

I'm currently on bail facing felony "stalking" charges in TX for sending a few joke emails to a former employer who fired me under questionable circumstances.

There were no threats, or words even in the email or I would be in a worse position.

It was a few tasteless pictures (non pornographic or violent, but crude).

If you can’t do the time . . . . Don’t do the crime. . . .

And all over Facebook and Twitter the Moron Class is promising to riot and kill people if George Zimmerman is acquitted. Why isn’t the Gestapo going after them?

Get a lawyer and sue.

3 months and still no trial, this is not right.

"When I did journalism"

What does that mean?

Hey folks, go read the 11th amendment in your pocket constitution and tell me how some Canadian wench’s feelings can legally land a Texas citizen in jail.

Maybe you’ll also wonder how a Texas rancher could be criminally charged or civilly sued for trying to keep border jumpers from trespassing on his property after reading it.

In other news:

Federal investigators have found no evidence that the disgraced Wall Street titan broke the law.

“After 18 months of investigation, the criminal probe into Jon Corzine is now being dropped,”

I never thought such things would happen in TX. This is after the 12 yr old boy was raped and tortured, then shunned by the community. Looks like we have lost texas.

So your son is learning that actions have consequences. That can be a hard lesson.

Only certain people have freedom of speech and can say or post anything they want without consequences...

Shame on everyone thinking it's ok that this guy is in jail.

How ridiculous. Apparently some in Texas do not know the meaning of sarcasm. The kid needs to find a new town to live in where they read books now and again.

Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty?” Why is the kid still behind bars? Was there no bail?

Something I'm curious about:

“Someone had said something to the effect of 'Oh you're insane, you're crazy, you're messed up in the head,’” he called, “to which he replied...'

What did he say to earn this rebuke? What did the kid post prior to, and following his infamous remark?

And, why is a 19 year old kid so absorbed in a video game?

I have only so much outrage left in me, and before I dispense anymore of it, I want to know the whole story.

In cases like this, always look for the prosecutor with political ambitions...

His family has a petition to get him released. It needs 32,000 more signatures.
