20 Years in Prison for a Facebook Post?

A teenager from a small town outside Boston has been held without bail for weeks. He faces terrorism charges and 20 years in prison for posting rap lyrics on the internet.
Held without bail? For writing a rap song?

A search of Cam's house found no explosives, weapons, or ANY evidence that he was planning anything other than becoming the next Eminem.
Take a minute to watch the video of one of Cam's songs above, and decide for yourself whether you think he's a threat to public safety, or just a teenager speaking his mind.
After you read this kid's story, you'll think twice about what you post on Facebook. (And that's the problem.)
Meet Cameron D'Ambrosio. He's 18 and lives in a small town outside Boston. He wants to be a rapper and calls himself "Cammy Dee" in his YouTube videos.

Oh, and he's been locked up without bail for weeks -- facing terrorism charges and 20 years in prison -- all for something he posted on Facebook.

On May 1st, Cam was skipping school and messing around on the internet. He posted some lyrics that included a vague reference to the Boston Marathon Bombing and called the Whitehouse a "federal house of horror." Soon after that he was arrested and charged with Communicating a Terrorist Threat, a felony that carries 20 years in prison.
The post contained no specific threat of violence against any person or group of people, and in the context of the rest of the lyrics and Cams' rap persona, it was clearly nothing more than a metaphor. A search of Cam's house found NO evidence that he was planning any violence, but a judge still ordered him held without bail for the next 3 months, pending trial.

Cam should be released immediately unless the D.A. can produce some additional evidence as to why he is a threat to anyone.

Please share this blog with your friends and raise some awareness for Cameron.

    2. you're awful judgemental of others! Since when did you have the right to talk about other people?? Seeing as how you got that 1980's mustache you really have no room to talk about anyone now do you?

    3. You have the right to talk about other people since it's legal to speak your mind? Perhaps that person acknowledges what you call faults, and is proud of them. You have the right to talk however you want. First amendmant.

    5. I don't undersand most of what this kid is saying, but it sounds like he is not a happy kid and i would say Scary? when they are like that boy I sure would be out of his way! sorry but he might need help more than anything else, but nowdays those kids are "know it all"
      I wish they'd be kids and enjoy life because once its gone you cant get it back, like a spool of thread, unwind it your dead good luck to rewind on the spool...
      well may be he will learn how to talk without giving any personal ultimatum and scare people as terrorist, the pen is sharper tool and acomplishes more than phisycal damage at least makes you read over and over until you get it and hopefully may be you'll learn eventually

    6. Dear Just a father, how in the hell is he scary or unhappy please oh please back your statement up, this is is clearly having a good time laying down some lyrics to a track messing around enjoying himself you absolute moron. The U.S. government is an absolute joke and he can say whatever he likes and should be proud of it. You're under complete control under it, whilst there's mass revolution going on around the world, which your media barely shows as it does'nt want to give you lot any idea the majority just sit at home and dont batter an eyelid. If any country should be revolting it should be the U.S. dont judge people when you know nothing.
      Much Love, Peace.

  6. This blog did not blow my mind. Also, this kid needs to listen to Anthony Criss and write before he puts videos out. Best luck getting out of jail bud, welcome to "the land of the free". Still proud to be an American?

  7. umm if they searched the house and found no evidence, I heard no reason to lock him up.....maybe give him music lessons but not lock him up, there are people every day that that say worse things and they are not locked up. What he is saying on there from what I heard is just a reflection bout his life now and how he has grown up.... Really get it nder control if someone says something they just get locked up wow talk about scared lol

  11. I think the guy is just stupid. Dont swat the bear. You do have free will, just have to accept the consequences associated with that choice. If you don't know that, you are stupid. You are not special and get to be stupid without answering for it.
