Social Media Rant Lands Kalamazoo Man in Jail
Odds are if you're like me, you see people ranting on Facebook and Twitter all the time. A man from Kalamazoo learned there is a line you shouldn't cross when ranting.
The story comes from Fox 17
A 30-year-old Kalamazoo man is in custody after allegedly threatening to blow up a local court building.
Kalamazoo Public Safety officers say they heard Monday night that a bomb threat was made on social media. Officers found the suspect in the 2000 block of Inverness Lane in Kalamazoo and he was taken into custody without incident.
The man was held at the Kalamazoo County Jail on charges of making terroristic threats and three outstanding misdemeanor warrants. His name will be released after formal charges are made.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call Kalamazoo Public Safety at 269-337-8994 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
So, this guy allegedly was so mad he logged on to Facebook and proceeded to vent his anger out through the keys, saying something to the effect of I'm going to blow the court house up.
I wonder if while he was typing it out he thought he would get some sympathetic words of encouragement from his friends. Since he was taken into custody with out incident maybe he didn't really mean it. However, you don't mess around with people's lives. Especially in Kalamazoo.
