federal prison is nothing like the average local jail, especially minimum security fed

I don't think it's his eye that's going to get opened in prison. Maybe it will encourage other swatters to stop.

I wish our prison system was better. Even a short stint in prison is extremely unlikely to make a positive change in this guys behavior. People almost always come out worse off than they went in, and more of a threat to society.

We can't let the behavior go unanswered, but at the same time, are we doing more harm than good by converting this social retard into an actual criminal?

I feel like a more creative punishment should be in order. Maybe a ban from computers, and a court order to seek and maintain gainful employment in a low tech field of work. Sort of a rehab for addiction to being an internet fuckwad.

Just one idea.

Yeah, but then we also have privatized prisons who are paid just to have prisoners. So they don't care. It's just livestock to them.

Kid makes me sad that I live in CT, and am a CT native.

Between this guy and the mac and cheese kid that just got expelled from UConn, what's in the watter in CT?

A year is good amount. Long enough for the seriousness of the crime, but not so long as to burden society. This guy's not a hardened criminal and I'd be surprised if he did this ever again.

To be fair, the main UCONN campus is out in the boondocks (re: redneck) area of CT.

Generally we are nicer, and more decent than what has been going on here. Think of us as a "nicer" NY or Boston. But don't mistake that for being like the south.

Yeah, actually graduated from Storrs campus 20 yrs ago or so. Which is why I'm kind of shocked to see this kind of stuff happening there. I'd expect that in FL or TX, but not CT. I guess at least no one got shot, so there's that.

I keep hoping we'll hear more about mac and cheese kids continued fuck ups in the future! I demand more! And I'm not leaving!

Why? Is CT supposed to be free of idiots and assholes or something? Find me that mythical place and I'll move there.

He's 22. Time to man up!

I just don't have much sympathy. His actions could have gotten someone else injured or killed.


Yeah, wholeheartedly agree. This guy absolutely deserves his Year and a Day in Hell!

Note the comma there. He gets 366 days behind bars (yea!).


Do you think that's enough time in jail to graduate into a proper criminal?

Going from playing Xbox in your mom's basement to federal prison is going to be quite an eye opener for this 'boy'...
