"I heard the prank phone calls he made," says Annette Lundeby of Oxford. "They were really funny prank phone calls. He made phone calls to, like, Walmart.”
BTW - the calls were FULL of racial slurs...she thought they were "funny."
"Lundeby confirmed that her son was known online as "Tyrone," a celebrity in a prank-calling community that grew late last year out of the trouble-making "/b/" board on 4chan."
"Lundeby admits that her son received donations for his prank phone calls."
"The case is sealed because the suspect is a minor." Just as I said days ago.
These "journalists" should be fired...look how many suckers here believed every word, and starting crying about civil liberties?
"Mom Outraged by Son`s Arrest Reportedly Knew of His Web Stardom for Phone Threats"
From the US Attorney: "ASHTON LUNDEBY WAS CHARGED UNDER A LONG-STANDING LAW AGAINST MAKING THREATS, and "this chage is UNRELATED TO THE PATRIOT ACT" the statement says."
TO ANYONE BITCHING ABOUT THE PATRIOT ACT - you obviously don`t even know what it is - if you did, you would have known it was inapplicable.
He`d post YOUTUBE videos making prank calls to stores and whatnot - later he`d let kids pay him $5 to make bomb threats to their school.
NOT ONE RIGHT WAS VIOLATED, due process was given. He`s a criminal, thats all.
Kingofall - look up the logical fallacy of hasty generalization and tell me who the moron is.
i guess you cant have it both ways
This is so funny! lol
it makes me want to puke my pants
p.s. why am I teaching American literary quotes from American Founding Fathers to Americans?
told ya`ll the patriot act was some bull$hit!
Seems like she knows more than the average mum.
FYI: I was homeschooled for a while before my mom decided she was just too busy to keep up. I did it because school was ass.
What the hell happened in between, did they just ignore all that &Â§"! that has been going on? Hell, I`m scared to visit friends in the states because I might be kept there for an undefined period of time because I forgot to take out a nail file out of my luggage.
Seriously - if you`re not enraged, you`re not paying attention.
Most families who home-school are fine. Usually it`s because, their local schools suck, and they just want the best for their kids. However, there is a small minority of people who are just bat$#!+ crazy. This would include white supremacists, doomsday cultists, incestuous perverts, and peckerwood fundamentalist religious fanatics. We don`t know which group this kid falls into.
The other thing is that these FBI agents know if they go ape$#!+ on an innocent kid without credible evidence, they will spend the rest of their careers running speed traps in Podunk, Mississippi.
The Patriot Act is a tool, just like a gun. It can be misused, or it can save lives. When people are plotting to kill thousands of innocent civilians, you can`t treat them like shoplifters.
The excuse that "somebody stole my IP address" is lame. His HD should tell the story. Let`s wait and see how this turns out. You may be su
The Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, is the short title of a federal law of the United States passed on September 21, 1996. 1. No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) needs to treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state. 2. The federal government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states.
article 4; section 1 of the constitution:full faith and credit clause.
Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
i sat behind that kid in my world civ class.karen was a great kid.
anyways. the united states does not give a damn about the constitution, have you heard of DOMA? the defense of marriage act. as far as i`m concerned that is a direct violation of article 4; section one of the constitution. and american citizens are a-ok with it because being gay is "immoral." no matter if it goes against that silly constitution.
They definitely had reason for taking him into custody if there were numerous bomb threats, but two months stay is questionable. And when teh mom says that there aren`t any bombs in the house, that doesn`t mean he can`t make a threat. You see, that`s why it`s called a threat.
And I doubt it was a prank, only a real d-bag would make numerous prank calls that are bomb threats, and most d-bags wouldn`t know how to steal an i.p. address or even if the phone provider and internet provider are one in the same.
Gah, I would hate to have that many months of my life wasted like that.

During times of war U.S. presidents always expand their powers in regards to the constitution. What makes this any different than when Lincoln suspeneded Habeaus Corpus?
I hope they get this worked out soon but it`s doubtful since the Feds are involved. He`ll be lucky to ever be free again.
Nah.. i agree..
who gives a 5h1t about these petty little crimes of TERRORISM
US should spend more money helping the poor and less worrying about how to keep themselves FREE AND SECURE.
THE US IS ALREADY FREE AND SECURE!!! All the terrorism crap is just lame excuse from government to make it a semi-communist country which is easier to control.
People are so drating melodramatic today...
How would Obama allow this?
The word `patriot` holds far to much sway in America
That said, why does this woman mention `blasting caps`? What is a blasting cap? Where does she pluck this word from?! SHES the terrorist! Burn her at the stake! Eat her eyeballs! Send her to Guantanamo!
Also, civil war is in our future.
Yes because Waterboarding is so much better than school.
lol serious checks and balances fail. didnt you ever take government class? read the constitution? use common sense?
poor misinformed fool.
On the bright side, he gets out of school! *pats boy on back*
thank you for trying to make this a racial issue. now shut up. this is not a race issue.
" I`m beginning to think we aren`t being told the whole story."
If this is a federal government case, of COURSE you won`t be told the whole story.
When people have been bitching about how unconstitutional this act has been since day 1???
This... just pisses me off. DX
Because if you give even the most festering disgusting turd the right brand packaging, people will buy it.
I`m a lifelong democrat, but come on people, don`t take everything at face value. The US government doesn`t arrest children for making bomb threats without a good reason. Those FBI agents live here, have families, and are people - they aren`t faceless.
This local report doesn`t say how the patriot act has any bearing on this - they just mention it because people don`t like it (I don`t either).
Internet wackos (the only people reporting this, not the real media anywhere), say he hasn`t been "charged," but what they mean is that he hasn`t been arraigned.
THIS KID MADE BOMB THREATS OVER AN INTERNET TELEPHONE. "Someone stole his IP address" says the mom....sure. Do you think the US gov`t doesn`t have the simple ability to track the geographical origins of an internet phone call??
A gag order is normal in a case involving a minor.
STOP BEING SO REACTIONARY. Kid`s a criminal.
Oh, silly, everyone know guns are real! The gun-fairy puts it under your pillow at night if you are really nice!
I couldn`t agree more, and I consider myself a patriot.
I got nothing against the American people, but the government system is retarded.
Btw, Millions of innocent people are prosecuted under state laws, Most just plea out and pay some sort of fine instead of fight the system.
Our 4th and 5th amendment rights were usurped long before 9-11.
Pshh. What`s next, a ban on anthrax?
LIES!!! Canada is everything and anything evil in the universe. Proof: The Canadian flag is red. And you know what else is red?
He`s obviously kidding, stop twistin your panties.
Though, I can`t help but say it.That guy is hot.
Back on topic, though, I think this case is just another example of the failure of the US "intelligence" community. They probably have the wrong <insert kid`s name here>. With over 300 million people in the US, there must be at least one other <insert kid`s name here>.
Yeah... That would clear up everything.
Obama said a lot of things during the campaign. He is also a politician, which means he lied.
Everyone knows Canada is responsible for everything that goes wrong in the world. Don`t deny it!
@LoofahBoy: You could at least try to watch it all. Canada isn`t mentioned even one time. Futile attempt to break the video argument: DENIED.
