Been saying for a long time that IF you make threats here, you CAN be found AND arrested. The guy was on the news. Apparently he threatened to kill people, and they traced his IP address and arrested him.
Just goes to show, no matter where you are, if you post something stupid here, they CAN find you and they CAN arrest you.

Threats are legitimate arrest material, but if merely posting something stupid on Topix was a crime, we'd need a jail the size of a Super Wal-Mart.

There are many many cases in court right now over someone being stupid on Topix. Unfortunately people think they can't be found, and they can't be prosecuted, but this proves, they are 100% wrong.

We will get a Super Walmart the day after we vote wet. A Kroger and Sams are planned for the next week. Better drink up Allen County we got a lot of progress to make.

He impersonated a cop, turning his mistamenor (sp?) into a felony, resulting in bluegrass and topix pulling his IP. And he was attested. YES, they can find you!!

Anonymous.UK hacked the EDL site. They identified all the members and supporters by name.
The only reason Topix posters haven't been identified is because they are so ignorant nobody cares about them.

BARREN COUNTY, Ky.(WBKO)-- When you post something on a social forum site like Topix, it doesn't necessarily mean you're anonymous.

Barren County Sheriff's Office arrested 33 year-old Chad Alan Kender on multiple charges including terroristic threatening, impersonating a police officer and tampering with physical evidence.

These charges relate from threats he made against Barren County Judge/Executive Davie Greer and talking about Barren County residents being shot if they were out past a curfew.

"Everybody has a right to free speech, that's a constitutional right that you're given, but when you go onto a forum or a website and you make threats against citizens of this county or public servants or your neighbor for that matter, you've committed a crime. It doesn't take long for us to be able to catch on and backtrack you and figure out exactly where that threat came from," said Barren County Sheriff Deputy Mike Houchens.

The Sheriff's office said they worked with Topix and bluegrass cellular and were able to trace the IP address.

Kender even allegedly tried to cover it up by posing as a police officer.

"He used an officer's information to contact Topix to have the post removed," said Houchens.

"The interesting thing about this case is what he was originally charged with terroristic threatening is only a misdemeanor and in an attempt to cover up his crime, he's committed if in fact these allegations are true, two felonies. So, he could be looking at up to ten years in prison for committing a class a misdemeanor and trying to cover it up with two felonies," said legal expert Alan Simpson.

While the post may not be there anymore, people are still talking about it, on Topix.

Police say they certainly have the tools to find you if you commit a crime on a site like Topix.

The Barren County Sheriff's Office says the investigation is still ongoing.

Edith, if posting stupid comments could get you arrested, then why aren't you in jail?

I guess I could ask you the same, couldn't I?
THREATS will get you jailed. Learn to read what REALLY happened. You obviously didn't read again.
