I'm so glad I went to Iraq so we could enjoy freedoms like speech and shit. le sigh.
Thank you for being the voice of reason here at least now I'll be able to gauge whether I'm wasting my time trying to explain things. If he can still find cause to argue with you or still keeps up the attitude in spite of your reasonable explanation then I won't bother any further. Its quite possible he and I would never agree anyway, but no doubt the endless back and forth of sarcasm and disdain wasn't helping matters.Caiphus said:Kinda what I'm saying, but less provacative
By what moronic standard does he need to be punished? Ever played an online game? The tone is much harder than sarcasm. People who think this statement was in any way inappropriate need to go to the asylum instead.NinjaNikki said:This is complicated for me as well. He posted a statement on Facebook saying that he's crazy and go shooting people at a school. And then a woman read it and took it way too seriously and actually found out where he lives and reported him. He deserves to be punished for doing something incredibly stupid, but eight years in jail is not the kind of punishment he deserves.
It was a bad joke, but quite obviously a joke. You shouldn't be able to hand down a freaking legal sentence for bad humour.Elfgore said:This is a very complicated case for me. He without a doubt, did something incredibly stupid but... does he really deserve eight years in jail for it? Hell after that school shooting in Newtown or whatever that school was called, some kid from a neighboring school said he could do better on facebook and was arrested. He got away with a slap on a wrist from the judge and was expelled from his school. That should be this guys punishment. Give him some community service or something because this kid will be most likely murdered in prison.
What he did is not right and he deserves to be punished, but eight years in jail is to extreme.
I think you just described me. >.>chikusho said:I guess you have a good point. The overabundance of information is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, people should know what injustices are being committed on a daily basis. On the other, once you see them stack up mile high it's easy to become apathetic and bitter.
I see a pattern. Joking about robbing a bank, but not actually doing it - Life sentence.songnar said:Wait, so...
joking about murdering someone or someones - 8 years.
Actually murdering someone - 10 years.
Robbing a bank and not murdering anyone - 20 years.
Hmmmm. That's actually pretty inspiring to think about!
