FAKE: 25 yrs to life for a "SWATter"

Postby Charles L. Cotton » Sat Aug 26, 2017 8:25 pm

You may recall that some dirtbag anti-gunners were threatening to SWAT anyone they saw carrying openly. Here's a heartwarming report of one such person spending a lot of time in Club Fed. http://www.usarmy4life.com/teenage-pran ... al-prison/

Wowza! This is for real?

EDIT: Still doing some checking around. So far this appears to not be quite so true.

Apparently it's a 2 year old hoax.

Check the dates on these two articles.

Sorry Charles.

This appears to be fake news that probably originated from a satirical site somewhere.

This picture Image is of Dylan Shoemaker, who was convicted of beating to death his girlfriends 1y old son because he wouldn't stop crying. He was convicted back in January 2014.

Well darn, I sure wanted it to be true. I changed the thread title so people won't be fooled as was I.

The real story is more disturbing than the fake one!
