  It is no longer funny. If it ever was. It’s not cute, it’s not gangsta, it’s not going to earn you respect. It’s not “just kidding." Do it again, and you are going to juvey. We might let you stop in at a Family Court Judge. Maybe. If you post a threat about a school, we are going to put you in...
