20-year old former Georgia Southern student has been in jail for 6 months after threatening to shoot up his school in a satirical Tumblr post.

Caleb Clemmons – a high-achieving, scholarship student – posting the following back in February:

“hello. my name is irenigg and i plan on shooting up georgia southern. pass this around to see the affect it has. to see if i get arrested.”

Clemmons had no intentions of actually bringing a gun to campus. But someone didn’t find it funny; and Caleb has been in jail ever since.

From Clutch:

He says the post was “an experimental literary piece and an art project,” but he is being charged with making terroristic threats on a computer, punishable by up to five years in prison and his bond was set at $20,000, which his family couldn’t afford.

His family reports that he has been physically abused while in county jail, and they fear that they don’t have the money to provide a proper defense.
