Donald Flanary said Facebook Does Not Have Conversation with Threat from Texas Teen
As reported by Business Insider on February 14th, 2014, a New Braunfels teen was arrested and jailed for a threatening Facebook comment although the police did not see the complete conversation.
Justin Carter, 19, posted a comment saying he would shoot up an elementary school, and another saying he would eat the children's beating hearts. His attorney Donald Flanary said the cops only saw a screenshot of a portion of the conversation before arresting the teen.
Carter was arrested for a third-degree "terroristic threat" which can mean years of jail time. Carter is free on bail, which initially was set at $250,000, but was bumped up to $500,000.
