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

Did they make you pay for the international call? Or was it on their dime?

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"

He's 16... I'm not sure what the minority laws are like there in Britishland.

It all depends on the intent and his mental state. I don't think simply locking him away is how they'd go about "facilitating" him... sounds more like a case involving psychiatric help and/or juvenile correction facilities.

But all that is just what I feel about it, and I'm totally ignorant in terms of the specifics of the situation.

Now that I think of it, hasn't he posted a lot in that ''ms paint your school pet peeves'' thread, claiming how much he hated his classmates and how he is the only ''smart'' guy in his class?

I hear tons of threats against public places through my friends, but they never actually do anything. I bet if all of our conversations were recorded online, we would all be in prison being butt fucked by a big black guy.

I remember, a little while ago, a girl was imprisoned for a few days for claiming she had a bomb in her bag at an airport "for a laugh".

While not as serious, it's not too much of a stretch to think that some of the laws broken in that case could apply here.

If he's being detained overnight, it's likely that it was more than just a joke anyway, so being sent to either a juvenile 'prison' or a psychaiatrist is also quite likely here too.

Suppose a few days from now he'll have internet access and returns to NG somehow, will he still be accepted on the BBS?

It's amazing that he has been arrested because of what happened on this thread.

I seriously wonder whether he was serious or not. Maybe the detective will tell one of the people who reported it once they are done questioning him, but maybe that will remain confidential information.

I hope that none of us are subpoenaed as witnesses and have to fly all the way out there.

Think he'd get put in some juvie joint and given a LOT of psychiatric therapy. Even if this is a big joke, shits and giggles of this context don't say much for someones mental state.

Looking at the pictures people have posted of him...

I reckon that had he tried anything, he'd have his head kicked in, the scraggly little ginger thing! No wonder he's mad!

Hah, well I share the amusement of the guy who imagined the person who gets to browse through NG as part of this investigation.

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.

In my mind they had already had one that they used when it was needed. Because this sort of thing happens all the time in Norfolk, I assume....... *cough*

Remember that hindsight is 20/20.

You can go scrolling through his post history and find allllll kinds of "clues" if you want to find them. Admittedly, his general attitude on these boards was never sunshine and happiness, and some of his recent posts are actually sort of indicative of this "plan."

Problem is trying to see the difference between actual threats and just a bit of angst, I know some of the stuff I say would suggest I want to do illegal things, but if you knew me you'd see the things differently, it's the same as everyone, if you wanted to you could make mary poppins out to be a serial killer.

So I briefly read through this entire thread and come to the conclusion that:

This morning he made this thread before he left for school, very soon after newgrounders contact authorities to try and stop him, he was stopped before anything happed, and is now in custody. That is about it. right?

I didn't know the guy on the BBS, but this would have been insane if he actually got to do it (or if he was ever really going to do it.)

Imagine how terrible it wold have been if none of us did anything.

"Evidence shows that he actually posted what he was planning on doing on the Internet an hour or so before leaving. The users of the site all laughed about it and seemed to have a good time, and did nothing to contact authorities"

Yikes, good job team, we saved innocent lives!
