    This is the text that the FBI made themselves look foolish over

    Jake J. Brahm gets what he deserves, you don't do this type of crap ever, especially post 9/11

    So a threat of this magnitude even if it proved to be false, is alright as long as it dosent include football? there are so many things wrong with that.

    or did they misquote him to attempt to make the paragraph humorous?

    Or GASP he was trying to be humorous himself. You're allowed to joke about the event if noone got hurt and it's over with. So says me.

    Im pretty sure its a federal offence, Indictable in Canada, to make Threats of Bodily Harm to anyone, even if it is in jest. It may be different if both parties thinks it is just a joke, but in this case, one party, being the FBI didn't think it was a joke.

    Of course you can laugh at the whole situation now but what he, being Jake J. Brahm, did wasnt funny

    Oh my bad, I meant She might be joking, meaning Leslie Wiser the FBI agent.

    Well, I thought it was pretty funny. Then again, I would have thought the FBI might have slightly better things to do.

    P.S JIHAD BOMB 9/11 INFIDELS DIRTY BOMB ALLAH

    Hey, in for a penny, in for a pound.

    I still don't understand why this particular post on a message board was singled out. I'm sure similar ones are made all the time on other boards. Also, if someone actually planned on having a major catastrophe occur, one in which a great deal of time and money were spent on, I don't see why they would go through the effort to warn everyone about it. Wait; let me go one step further with this. To warn everyone about it through 4chan.

    Which brings me back to my question. Why the heck did they treat this seriously?

    Your answer:
    He apparently spammed it all over the place.

    Oh, and excellent avatar. =)

    True, though I still think the fact it started at 4chan should have tipped them off that it wasn't 100% credible. :p

    Also, thanks.

    So much for "Freedom of Speech".

    Today, it's internet hoaxes. Tomorrow, it'll be seditious speeches.

    I think there's a darn good case for clear and present danger.

    Of what? Somebody spamming BS on internet sites?

    Does it warrant investigation? Sure.

    Did the man do something criminal? I don't think so.

    Dude, bomb threats are a crime.
    Spamming it on message boards? Who should believe baloney that is put on a website, anyway? Wait, that school shooting a while back, the shooter posted his plan on a website. In fact, that has happened quite often...
