    You cannot *joke* about something as serious as a school shooting. Just as you cannot yell *FIRE* in a crowded room as a joke. There are consequences to actions in this nation.

    You don't get to make threats and then call them back when you get caught.

    He is 18 and old enough to know right from wrong.

    So this young man made a foolish joke for a statement. If it is only a joke, then why is the 1st Amendment in the US Constitution not allowing foolish jokes? It took a long time for George Carlin to get the 1st Amendment rights. Lenny Bruce is another type of jokes that many did not like.
    On the other issue, apparently he uses illegal drugs, and that will take him to jail (he apparently turned 18 very recently).
