What a JOKE

What a load of ish, this is sensationalism at it's peak...quoting his tweets out of context in order to make it look like he wasn't joking (which he was). See for yourself [email protected]_BigBadWolfe The guy was on house arrest, even walking across the street would've alerted the police. This journalist should be fired for his shameless, ignorant, lazy, and inaccurate reporting. This story is the real joke that shouldn't be taken seriously.

It was dumb and immature, but any thinking adult can take one look at his preceding and successive comments on his Twitter account and understand that this guy is about as serious as a Circus Clown.

The Felony needs to be dropped just like Naquan Powell and this kid's name needs to stop being deliberately and subversively defecated on in the name of getting a little self-interested web traffic.

Bet he is black... His name is Anthony which could go either way, he is on house arrest and that could go either way, and he was talking about shooting up a school (the shooting is a black thing and blacks only defense is white kids shoot up schools) so i guess that could go either way... All three together? I think he's black

I gotta disagree with ya. Some things don't get joked about. If they did nothing and the school did get shot up.... Then what?? I think its a perfect way to set an example of what NOT to do. Probably a parenting issue, but he is 19, and thats old enough to know better.

I like how all his "followers" think that it was out of line for him to get arrested.

Prosecute his punk ass, and let it be a lesson to all his sociopath admirers on Twitter: you, too, could spend the next 10 years bunking with Bubba. You may or may not be serious; WE are definitely serious. Beware of us decent people who are not amused by your flirtation with harming our kids. We'll strike lightning and thunder in your ass.

This stuff has to be taken serious. Look at all the dead kids because someone didn't report a "funny" joke. He must be troubled if he's on house arrest. Keep the felony, get him off the streets before he does more felonies, like kill innocent people. Obviously he has legal issues to be on house arrest. Not everything has to do with parenting either. Probably just a bad seed. Glad he was caught!

Only reason why he is joking is because he is in jail. He should be in for along time. You don't joke about safety of other people's kids. Maybe you all that think it is of to joke about that in any context should go spend time with the sandy hook parents or columbine . Put him away where he belongs look at the mug shot he is smiling he looks proud to be in jail

I don't know this young man. He is no longer a kid. 19 and responsible for his actions. Our nations recent past with school shootings should be all the more readon for him to realize he was wrong. It was a threat. His ignorance doesn'tske him innocent.
