$500,000 DONOR Comes To The Rescue of Texas teen arrested over Facebook comments

The 19-year-old in Texas who was arrested for posting a seemingly sarcastic — yet violent — message on Facebook is out on bail thanks to an “anonymous good Samaritan” who donated $500,000 to free the teen.
Justin Carter has been in jail since February for making a “terroristic threat” on Facebook that read, “I think Ima shoot up a kindergarten / And watch the blood of the innocent rain down/ And eat the beating heart of one of them.”
“Carter was arrested in February and had an initial trial Texas’ Comal County in April. There the judge set Carter’s bail sky-high and charged him with making a ‘terroristic threat,’ which is a third-degree felony and could have led to a 10-year jail sentence,” Business Insider notes.
Don Flanery, one of the attorneys representing the Carter family, told MSNBC that the anonymous donor paid $500,000 to get Carter out of prison. The 19-year-old, his father and attorney will be on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC tonight.
As TheBlaze previously reported, Carter was apparently having a really rough time behind bars. He was put on suicide watch in Comal County Jail.
His father, Jack, told NPR his son was “put in solitary confinement, nude, for days on end because he’s depressed.”
