Florida Man Threatens Calif. Man 2011-11-04 20:49:32 Reply

ORLANDO, Fl. -- An Orange County, Florida man has been charged with threatening to kill a San Luis Obispo, California man via Facebook private messenger. Jacob Colton, 22, of Casselberry, Fl. is being charged with making threats online to a 21-year-old man, whose name will not be released for his own protection, a student at California Polytechnic State University. Police say the spat was over membership for an online group which originated from the animation-based website Newgrounds.com. However, police say the two held an altercation over the Facebook messaging system, and Colton had broadly stated he would come to the 21-year-old man's house and kill him.

Colton is facing one count of making threats via the Internet, which can hold five months in jail or a $2,000 fine.

I know Jake and the other guy, whose name I will not say. They are both great guys but both of them seem to just have this unexplained beef with each other, and Jake just had to let his steam out... the wrong way.

But I hope this sentencing isn't too harsh.

I had a feeling Edd made this thread since there was a reference to California. I'm pretty sure he did too.

Wonder how long it will be before the media blows up and tries to accuse Newgrounds of being a bad influence.

Positive Press:

Yeah, I guess it does balance out.

In reality, even though the outcome and reaction to SirTom's postings was a good thing, SirTom's post itself was a negative thing and kind of portrayed us as bored lonely crazies. But it also showed there's many caring people on NG like Rig who did what we had to do.
