Texas teen investigated after calling on other Trump supporters to help 'assassinate Joe Biden'

Raw Story

By Travis Gettys

The Secret Service is reportedly investigating a Texas teenager who threatened to kill president-elect Joe Biden.

A video circulated over the weekend showing the teenager displaying guns and asking other supporters of President Donald Trump to meet up and “assassinate Joe Biden,” reported KTRK-TV.

“This is as clear cut of a case of a terroristic threat as I’ve ever seen,” said attorney Steve Shellist, who isn’t involved in the case. “There are still crimes, and you can prosecute someone as a minor, it would just be handled in a different way.”

The Secret Service would not confirm its involvement in the case, which is standard policy for all threats handled by the agency, but the TV station learned agents had looked into the matter.

1. And yet the school is reluctant to suspend him

Because he didn’t threaten students

8. Parents who secretly think what he did was okay...

“It’s not like he threatened any students or anything like that,” said parent Ashley Grantham said. “I think he was just all talk.”

2. If

the guns are his, he need to be charged as an adult. Gun ownership implies adult responsibility. Just took at Kenosha.

They think they're big tough guys, but playing laser tag with real bullets.

7. And there was just the Utah guy driving to Missouri to kill Sen. McCaskill

It's getting uglier.

I hope they are put in jail and stay there a long time. They won't learn the lesson, but at least they'll suffer consequences.

13. yes, and that is going to happen-- just inevitable.

And especially when they're doing it for the star power it gives them on White Terrorist Social Media-- think about the synagogue killer=- "I'm going in!" he announced.

9. Needs to go to prison

With his eventual release made conditional on the basis that he no longer harbours those sort of views.

It’s open and shut terrorism and the school should be shut down pending a complete change of leadership if it does indeed fail to act.

Secret Service involved in matter with Crosby High School student threatening President-elect Joe Biden

Snips:
CROSBY, Texas (KTRK) -- ABC13 has learned the Secret Service is handling the matter involving a Crosby High School student who made a video threatening President-elect Joe Biden. Over the weekend, a video surfaced of a teenager who displayed guns, and asked for his Trump supporters to meet up and "assassinate Joe Biden."
+++
Officials added the boy's parents voluntarily gave up weapons. If the student isn't charged, attorney Steve Shellist, who isn't involved in this case, said he'll be shocked. "This is as clear cut of a case of a terroristic threat as I've ever seen," Shellist explained. Shellist said even though the student is a minor, it doesn't mean he can't get in trouble. "There are still crimes, and you can prosecute someone as a minor," Shellist explained. "It would just be handled in a different way."

Making a threat against a president-elect could land you five years behind bars.
+++
The man charged with a crime said he had to post a bond and is now wearing an ankle monitor. If convicted, he faces five years behind bars. "Just don't do it," he explained. "It's not worth it. It doesn't prove your point."

17. He's at that awkward age - old enough to be tried as an adult

Sorry Texas teen-ager, but Kyle Rittenhouse has kind of spoiled things for you, and the adults are taking this shit seriously, even in Texas.
