Who knows. Maybe he just wanted the replica for the same reasons anyone else would want a replica or airsoft gun. Maybe it had nothing to do with this.

I have a real Glock 23, for self defense and target shooting purposes only.

I guess so, looking at it with the mindset it's fake, you can easily see how it can be fake, but then from the mindset it's real there are also things that point towards it being real, however I am starting to doubt anything has happened. Mind you, one thing pushing it for me is the fact that he would have been at school today, seems as though he took the day off for something... or not.

Well, nevertheless better to be safe... than really, really sorry. Kinda sad if it turns out to be a joke though, can't imagine people like him are doing it for the lulz.

Name one, other than Livecorpse.
Newgrounds has a huge userbase, it's only likely that there's gonna be SOME nutcases.
No disrespect to Livecorpse inteded.

There is another one his name was Jeff Weise he created two flash movies here is the wiki for it http://newgrounds.wikia.com/wiki/Jeff_We ise and if people don't taunt him maybe he will reconsider doing something as stupid as this just trying to stop the conflict.

Its all speculation at the moment. We won't know the outcome until the outcome comes. It doesn't matter if he was joking or not, shit like this just isn't cool. It's nice to see that people are on top of this, thought.

Yeah, well, I figure it's important for whoever ends up evaluating this guy to know that he was looking into replica guns.

Making generilisations and over-the-top remarks like that can hurt this guy. Think about that; DO NOT PUT SHIT IN PEOPLES HEADS WHEN WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE SITUATION.

I don't think any competent legal counsel would consider the wild theories of a stranger on the internet to be something serious. Part of whoever it is' job to monitor this thread is to filter out the relevant shit. We don't need to do it for them.

Who knows? Maybe he just wrote that and replied for like 5 minutes before he left to go do it. Hopefully he won't do something this stupid but only time will tell.

Exactly, anything said here would never be used in a court, they may call upon users who posted to attend court and give evidence (doubtful, very) however that's how they'd do it, they'd not use posts directly because anyone can post here anonymously.

Yeah, pretty much every thing essential to actually finding his home and school have been given to the proper people. Now we're at a stage where we fidget and wait to see what happens, and speculate and tell tales of how we knew this friend of a friend who was sorta like this guy, and blah blah.

Of course if anyone has anything new to put forth, you're welcome to.

I just cant see how some people cant be just good little boys, keep a clean record, move to America, and get the good shit. Though the reason to have them is in the case someone wants to smother you with flammable substances and ignite you to your death. In that case it is your right to tell that person trying to do that to you that your sorry but not today and not me.

This is it.

Key word being replica. I look at replica swords, own some, but I'm not going to stab anyone. Those things are likly unrelated and really shouldn't be mentioned.

I don't think any competent legal counsel would consider the wild theories of a stranger on the internet to be something serious. Part of whoever it is' job to monitor this thread is to filter out the relevant shit. We don't need to do it for them.

Key word being competent. Procescutors will look at any evidence that proves thier theories so long as the source has any credibility what so ever. Some do turn to fairly questionable tactics. If it pans out, it will be stated he was here, and legal council will examine this thread. The fact someone has made the assumption is enough for procecutors to plant it in a jury - or judge's - mind. If someone else thought that was connected or the reason, maybe it could have been...

Persuassion is a cold woman who works herself well in anyones mind. She can make a thought appear to be your own drawn conclusion. Everything here can be used as evidence, and we have to be careful with what we say, because people can spin it. We know it's baseless, but in the right hands, an assumption like some of those made here can easily be spun to make OP seem mentally unstable or make connections between unrelated things. I just think we really need to be careful with this, as this could be someone's future we're inadvertedly toiling with. If you're going to comment, be smart about it and don't assume anything. That's all I'm trying to say. OP deserves to be treated without bias despite apparent idiocy.

True and I hope you are right and he is just bullshitting here, but I don't think he is. Maybe he didn't want to do it at first but since people are calling him out he has to do it. I just hope he doesn't or whatever he can ruin his life if he wants.

Maybe he was going to do it, I don't know, my point was that the very few, very extreme cases of this kind of thing shouldn't reflect the newgrounds userbase in any way.

Scratch that other useless post out, sorry mods and officers.

This is probably just an attention whore act blown out of proportion. If he has people that have pictures of him AND pertinent information about him on a particular website, I don't think he would even attempt something like this. But he may be a nut case, so that could be crossed out.

And I imagine that all he is doing is bluffing, he has no actual proof of his ownership of arson equipment, all he has is a picture of something resembling a dry-ice container. A blurry one at that. His former posts aren't exactly what you'd call reliable evidence too, I mean I could go on about how I am a millionare playboy for dozens of BBS and news posts, and establishing all of that with semi-interwoven posts regarding the matter. Like I could find pictures of an unknown person who looks that he has a playboy lifestyle and is rich and constantly show people that as my proof. I could reply to threads with answers that my established persona would say, and people would believe me, and if I say something such as "I got a part in a porno!!!" people would see the fake pictures and posts as proof.

So basically in a sense, what precautions we are taking to avert a controversy are good, but in my opinion this has been blown out of proportion in a sense.
