After reading through this whole thing, I'm extremely surprised some people acted like they did, when I read the first post I figured it would be 9 "DO IT" posts and a lock.

Newgrounds can be a topsy-turvy place.

Nice job to the couple of people that contacted authorities.

1) To avert a potential tragedy.
2) It was public information. Private info was forwarded to Wade via PM.

"Leave this topic, authorities are being contacted."

Why did I just imagine Wade in his sunglasses with a double barreled shotgun.

What a cool thing to say.

This idiot posted on NG that he was going to set fire to this school!

Also, did any of you NGers see how many threads that are parodying this one! It makes me laugh like crazy!

Even if he was serious, it's over now...

Ouch.

Also, they're still monitoring the thread. Hi, guys!

Hmm, what would they still be looking for? Insights? Standard procedure? I'm sure they've discovered how to use the Post Search by now.

Maybe by "monitoring" they just mean they've got some script running that grabs at keywords.

:O

Pretty sure it was on my dime, though I use Skype for outgoing international calls. Cheaper, but still out of my pocket.

Oh well, I'm good with spending a few bucks if it means lives are saved.

Ah, this thread is funny.

As it has been said about >9000 (lol) times, I doubt he'll do it.

If he does, I hope he has a damn good time doing it.

He'll need it.

It's possible he presented with an attitude that they considered quite serious.

Or it was voluntary.

Or it's standard procedure.

Or d) all of the above.

Chances are they found something on him (petrol can, knife, other stupid shit etc.), or they want to hold him for questioning/psychiatric evaluation along with the other 2 people apparently involved in some way or other.

And yes, posting it here was a very bad (or very good, depending on whose perspective you take) idea.

Will he still get prison time even if it still was a big joke and he had no intention of burning the school down? I mean technically he wasn't the one who "wasted police time"

No, they're reading the thread as it grows to see if the guy has given any other information to users that haven't logged in yet. Or they want to see what else is going to come of it.

You know how when a celebrity commits suicide, there are crazy fans who try to go out the same way? Same deal here. This guy, sirtom or whomever, clearly had idols or felt ties to the columbine kids. Regardless of this guys success, I guarantee someone reading this thread is connecting dots in their head. And because the authorities are responsible and aware of this they are going to pay attention to where this goes because they are responsible for following leads and making sure nothing else develops.

And, if there is prosecution, they have to gather all evidence. Everything in this thread, regardless of how serious it is, would be subject to being read later. Even if its just a case of what kind of environment was sirtom living in, in his head.

They have a kid in custody now who shows clear warning signs that he is a threat to society. He hasn't done anything aside from threatening and they can't hold onto him without charging him with something. So its likely they are trying to figure out who he is entirely and whether he is a threat. Keeping a close tab on the thread where he said he was going to do something is probably something they feel obligated to do in case any internet friends come to post.

Its just like how they are going to talk to his parents, his siblings if there are any, and any associates he had at school or anywhere else.

While I'm sure they can tell the difference between speculation (prime example, my post) and people who know what they are talking about, the police won't have the luxury of laughing at a threat that could turn into a real problem. They'll read this thread until the case is closed because they are obligated to.

I doubt any local police department has the capability to script a word screening application in a matter of hours, especially one that expands with the web page. On top of that, a majority of local police departments don't have the money or the need most times to have that kind of support, which is why in the U.S.A. the nsa & fbi would often get involved in a case like this.
