    "Men Arrested for Threatening Pokemon Event Denied Bail"

    The two armed men who were arrested after allegedly making online threats against the Pokemon World Championships were denied bail Tuesday in a Boston court.
    The Associated Press reports that attorneys for 18-year-old Kevin Norton and 27-year-old James Stumbo argued that their comments were blown out of proportion. "This is just the way they all spoke to each other," Stumbo's lawyer, Steven Goldwyn, said in court today.

    "This wasn't just kid talk on the computer," a judge says."

    "According to prosecutors, Boston Police were notified of a Facebook chat conversation, between Stumbo and others, that made references to things like "Columbine pt 2," "another Boston massacre," and "Boston bombing." As part of this conversation, Stumbo supposedly said, "MY AR-15 says you lose."

    LOL.

    I'm glad they were stopped so I don't feel guilty for laughing at that.

    This was discussed on /pol/ and it was all a misunderstanding. They just bought those guns and they only had one magazine fuck's sake and they never installed the sights on the AR. They got thrown out of the stadium, so they went to their hotel. That's when they got arrested. If they wanted to shoot people during the tournament, they would've done it DURING the tournament.

    Well if they're going to use the type of rhetoric they used along with the possessions of firearms, they'd better be prepared to take the hit.

    I agree that its dumb and I'm losing sleep over these idiots getting arrested for this but at the same time they didn't commit a crime. They exercised their freedom of speech and their 2nd amendment rights.

    It didn't seem like a direct threat, more like young people being edgy for the sake of being edgy.

    This reminds me of the guy who showed up at the airport in Atlanta to pick up his daughter and was carrying around an AR15 with a 100 round drum.

    I don't know. Open carry is legal in GA and firearms are allowed in certain parts of airports there now. He could at least be subtle though.

    Why were they arrested? For talking smack on Facebook, and having a bootload of guns?

    So they made some threats about shooting up a convention. went and bought an AR15 and a shotgun, then went to the convention with their guns in the car.

    Gonna say that is not much of a misunderstanding.
