"Justin’s a good kid. He wouldn’t hurt anyone, let alone a child. What I understand happened is that he was in an argument on the League of Legends website, which continued on a Facebook page, and someone on Facebook called him crazy and messed up in the head.
So he responded in a sarcastic tone by saying something along the lines of 'Oh yeah, I'm real messed up in the head, I'm going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts' which was followed by saying JK (just kidding) and LOL (laughing out loud). His response may have been in bad taste, but it was written in a non-threatening way that didn’t translate well online. None of his friends or family would even question his intention as anything other than a poor choice of words. Things got out of control, but my son is not a felon and terrorist as he’s currently being charged!"
This kid would fit right in here on/. I'm betting his apartment was in a basement.. Please join this campaign: http://chn.ge/1587GkK We need to fight to stop the persecution of the socially awkward." Link to Original Source
For the third time I have been so lucky as to chosen to work on a project that entails redesigning a circa 2001 website from the ground up. While I am always glad to do my part at making the web a better place, it is always a love hate relationship. I love taking these old sites and bringing them up to date, but the process is very lengthy and at times can leave me awe struck at decisions that must have been made at some point in the past.
I encounter sections of these old sites that are created in Frontpage, Claris Homepage 2.0, Word 97??? and the like. There are references still intact to past Webmasters who must have been the ones responsible for the quagmire I am wading through. I just can't help but wonder what they were thinking at the time.
I created my first webpage/site in 1997 on a 486DX2 (smoking fast!) using notepad on Windows 95 while sitting in a GP Medium Army tent in southern Texas while on a field exercise. So, it boggles my mind to think that someone sitting somewhere much more comfortable than I was using Word or Frontpage to create webpages. Even as far back as that I knew that those options were somehow wrong and to be avoided. I guess I should just chalk it up to work ethic, some people are looking for quick and easy ways to accomplish something they must view as difficult.
