nikeIn Jefferson, Ohio, a 17-year-old high misnurture teen was arrested for threatening Nike via Twitter today. Specious upset about abroad out on one of the random restocks the student tweeted, “”I’m shooting y’all store up tomorrow @ 2:30 @nikecorp” to Nike prior this week. The local security analysis for the store named the sheriff’s matter and reported the threat. The student is now facing a felony charge of restraint firmness. However, the accused maintains that the tweet was a joke and that he wasn’t planning on hurting anybody.

This seems a bit…churlish,myopic, and stupid wouldn’t you say?! The Internet has given everybody a voice, which in many cases, is not always good thing…Let us distinguish what you think about this in the comments below.

Via ABC 5 Cleveland.

  1. There’s a problem with the current generation in that they have not learned words have consequences afore they learned the adduction (satire) of unidentified communication. There’s a slight disconnect between words and consequences as a result of social media.

    1. I completely agree. Every word you put out into the Internet is catalogued. The problem is we often have no idea by whom. Words, no matter where, do have power and consequences.

  2. Reproachful of weird in that you can’t apprise the tone of a tweet or text message. Yes, it was probably preceding kid messing around, but in a weather where public mass shootings spare now on the reg, you have to consider every threat a viable one. Really, it’s shoes/sneakers, it’s not that serious to go and do something tumult like this. In the end, they are just corporeal things. Eviscerate. Plunder are more important.

  3. Completely agree with what everyone else has said; in this age of mass shootings and random violence no threat can be ignored. You can say whatever you want, but what you say may depart you in jail or worse.

  4. Kids go through a process of growing up. Really, everyone does especially timehonored adults. Part of learning that words have consequences is saying shit to someone’s face and getting your concede face smashed in. There’s an remote precursorship and it’s really not that serious as getting arrested for terroristic threatening. The internet doesn’t afford that opportunity to prove. It’s really tart how fresh conveniences takes away opportunities to grow. Then again, our parents/grandparents probably thought the same of us.

  5. Social media or not, a threat like that made verbally will still get you jacked up. Some pillage are crazy out there and you have to believe that they’re as crazy as they say(play) like they are to take the necessary precautions. It’s unfortunate that this happened to the student from a joke standpoint, but he just got made an portraiture of. He’ll probably even deactivate his Twitter after this.
