DAILY MANIFESTO

Free Justin Carter Already And Let Him Get Back To League of Legends

Posted on Monday, July 1 @ 16:53:26 Eastern by


The acronym for League of Legends is LoL. Just like this story should be. Unfortunately, Justin Carter is still in jail.

Who is Justin Carter? He's 19, a LoL player, and thus well-versed in Internet sarcasm. So when one of his Facebook friends in March 2013 said he was "crazy" and "messed up in the head," Carter wrote something on the lines of "Oh yeah, I'm real messed up in the head, I'm going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts." He then promptly wrote it off with "lol" and "jk" because sensible people do that.

Of course, one "concerned citizen" in Canada thought this was no laughing matter, and this woman decided that it was her duty to contact the Texas police. Following through on this tip, the police searched the family's house and found nothing. He had no weapons of any kind. So why is he still in jail without charges and facing the possibilitiy of eight years in prison if convicted? Because common sense is apparently laughable in the face of "terrorism" and Sandy Hook zero tolerance.

If Carter is deemed guilty, then please lock up every commenter on YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and 4chan. Lock me up as well, because in one week, I'm going to wrap my head in fabric and force a plane into The Statue of Liberty, jk, lol.

Is what I just said egregious, indecent, flippant, and insensitive? Taken out of context and taken to a degree of extreme seriousness, yes. To any other person of sound mind, no. To anyone who believes in the free speech protected by the US Constituion, no. To the 31,000 people (and rising) who have already signed this petition to free Justin Carter on Charge.org, no.

So between Justin Carter's comment and the outcome to that comment, someone, plase tell me: Which is the bad joke?
