    Default Rapper Arrested and Facing Terrorism Charges For Rap



    May 2, 2013 *| * **
    *
    A Massachusetts high school student faces felony charges for allegedly posting on social media rap lyrics that police say amount to terrorist threats, the Valley Patriot reports.

    “He posted a threat in the form of rap where he mentioned the White*House,*the Boston Marathon bombing, and said ‘everybody you will see what I am*going*to do, kill people,” said Joe Solomon, who is police chief of Methuen, a city in north Massachusetts.

    According to a press release from the Methuen Police Department, 18-year-old Cameron D’Ambrosio posted the alleged threatening rap on Facebook. Police investigated the teenager after one of D’Ambrosio's classmates reported to Methuen High School authorities the “disturbing verbiage” on his Facebook page. The press release notes that the alleged threats “were in general and not directed towards another person or the school.”*

    According to the Eagle Tribune, D’Ambrosio was charged with communicating a terrorist threat and faces up to 20 years in jail. He is being held on $1 million bail. All this, for writing some scary rap lyrics on Facebook.

    UPDATE:

    The Boston Herald provides some better detail about what's going on than the Valley Patriot. D'Ambrosio faces one charge of making a bomb threat, which could could land him 20 years (but probably wouldn't). They also provide a heavily censored version of what his rap actually said:

    “I’m not in reality, So when u see me (expletive) go insane and make the news, the paper, and the (expletive) federal house of horror known as the white house, Don’t (expletive) cry or be worried because all YOU people (expletive) caused this (expletive),” read the social media posting that raised alarms with high school assistant Principal James Weymouth when another student called it to his attention.

    The rant only got more disturbing from there as it continued, “(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous rapping, and beat every murder charge that comes across me!”

    He made not a single direct threat of violence. Using inflammatory or even vaguely violent language is NOT a crime...at least not in what America used to be. People from the entire spectrum of the mainstream political scale all used to believe that. Is the guy an idiot... Yes. Is what he said offensive or insensitive.... Absolutely. Are his threats credible or what is considered a "true threat"? Probably not. This language is nothing more than political hyperbole and thus protected speech under the first amendment.

    I don't know. I never feel compelled to just say things like that.

    Well, it's a good thing their going after the real criminals right away and not letting him escalate into seeing his plan through. Kinda like they did with the 2 brothers in Boston that Saudi Arabia warned the department of homeland insecurity about in writing over a year ago. Oh wait

    Seriously though, at the most this shit for brains wigger just needs the dumb smacked out of him, preferably by Dirty Harry.

    Neither do I. Cause we're normal.

    But if we did, we shouldn't be arrested for it.

    That being said, the kid obviously wanted to get noticed...now he has been. Dumbass piece of shit.

    From the police: ""I do want to make clear he did not make a specific threat against the school or any particular individuals"

    If american citizens are now going to be charged with terrorism for violent, threatening rap lyrics, I have some tips for the police:

    www.itunes.com
    www.youtube.com
    www.pandora.com

    And this kid is a wanna be. A bad one.
    Maybe he deserves to be slapped in the face, but this is troubling.
