  • I find this disgusting that they would arrest someone for this. Someone having a bad day uses their blog, which is almost like a diary, and makes
    some little comments. its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Now a kid that was having a bad day, also has a criminal record because he was charged with a FELONY for havin a bad day. WOW something seems wrong here, right?

  • richard. there is no such thing as freedom of speech in this country. That Ohio boy was just asking for trouble. America is extreamly serious about threats, especially after 9/11, in this case Columbine. This was a threat, and threats are not taken lightly. period.
    The boy could of blocked his blog from the public if he considered it a diary entry. Dont stand up for this sick boy, you do not know if he was having a bad day. He might of been having a great day, and had been planning to shoot up his high school for weeks, maybe months now.

  • There will be alot more security i heard on the new myspace site and be able to filter words out. The new myspace that is coming out will be indexing the blogs they couldn’t alter the code with there current script so there is a better version of there site on another domain name starting march 1st it will be another social networking community site with alot more features. I guess to stay ahead of other sites coming out like also i heard it will be called i guess well just have to see if friendwise happens.

  • wow, how could you be disgusted by this. This is the kind of thing people are talking about. Just think about it for a second. A kid is saying he is going to his school and kill everyone, i would be freaked out. What if he was going to do it. Then it would be however saw it’s fault…It would be on his head because no one stoped him.
