On May 1st, Cam was skipping school and messing around online. He posted some lyrics that included a vague reference to the Boston Marathon Bombing and called the Whitehouse a "federal house of horror." Shortly 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.


this has been doing the rounds on Facebook today, is this shit for real? God dam.. how is vinnie paz still walking about ? The older brother had his tracks in his youtube favourites

well...sort of...

They could be lyrics to a rap, or a Facebook status update where he threatens to kill people and blow things up worse than the Marathon.

Now the charges are hugely overstated, but you cant do doing that stuff on your public FB page.

He was also

Another police report in the court records said that last June, DíAmbrosio was arrested for allegedly threatening to stab and kill his sister in a dispute over $20. He was charged with assault and battery and making a threat to commit a crime, but the case was dismissed on April 17.

No i see he was recently ordered to stay 90 days in jail without bail....THAT is fucked up.

But also, damn, it took me 30 seconds to find this information.

Took me a while to find the actual lyrics. Techdirt is the only place where I've seen them posted: https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130502/18364622931/ma-teen-arrested-held-without-bail-posting-supposed-terrorist-threat-facebook.shtml

ďIím not in reality, So when u see me (expletive) go insane and make the news, the paper, and the (expletive) federal house of horror known as the white house, Donít (expletive) cry or be worried because all YOU people (expletive) caused this (expletive).
(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, Iíma be famous rapping, and beat every murder charge that comes across me!"

After hearing about this, I posted about it. Someone said, "It's not that cut and dry" and he posted this Snopes link:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/crime/dambrosio.asp

Turns out it *is* that cut and dry.
So what...this kid once made a threat to his sister and to a pair of 8th graders? Like that's not NORMAL?! Haha, seriously. Oh wait, and then they talk about how HE was beaten to the point where his spleen ruptured. Huh. These are the examples that were given as to why he's a troubled case and he should be held without bail and put in prison over a lousy shock-rap he posted on Facebook? Come on, man. That's ridiculous.

I have a friend who was institutionalized against his will for writing shitty, mean rap lyrics when he was 17.

If he was better able to comport himself, he probably could have just let himself out but they shoved him full of sedatives and brain chemistry drugs until he came out a completely different person.

He went in there an anti-circus protesting vegan and came out a super zombie "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK" man and robbed a store at gunpoint in order to get drugs like the ones they were giving him in the facility.

THANKS OBAMA

I mean Clinton

I don't think drugs changed him as a person.

Apparently he was finally brought before a judge and the judge set him free. Still, this is a great example of how we're so willing to allow the government and law enforcement to do crazy shit when we're in a state of panic. I haven't talked about it in a while, but Naomi Klein's "Shock Doctrine" should be required reading.

Probably not exclusively. But forced on someone coupled with a regimen of unnecessary counseling, something fuckin' happened that was not happening before he went in there.

My larger point, though, was the ubiquity of situations a lot like this one y'know?

To me the problem isn't that we have a system in which authorities are alerted over things like this. The problem is that we have a system that is addicted to a purely punitive approach as a response. It's funny that this is how we respond even while people were still going apeshit over how mental health treatment is the only viable answer to gun control.

I think cases like these are going to get far more frequent before anything is done. In the mean time I can only plan to teach my son to keep a journal or some shit. At least explain to him that he's growing up publicly and everything he says will be used against him.

This begs the question. Why are such people, who are unable to govern themselves, in a position to govern the lives of others?
