Texas teen makes violent joke during video game, is jailed for months

http://j.mp/14AEYZi  (Daily Caller)

    The statements "lol" and "jk" - meaning "laughing out loud" and
    "just kidding" - indicate that Justin's statement was entirely
    sarcastic, said his father.  But a Canadian woman who saw the post
    looked up Carter's Austin address, determined that it was near an
    elementary school, and called the police. Carter was arrested one
    month later, and has been in jail ever since. He recently
    celebrated his 19th birthday behind bars.

The authorities in this particular case are CYAing idiots.
