Men Accused Of Threatening Pokemon Championships Denied Bail

pokemon_plot_men

Both men who were involved in the plot to threaten the Pokemon World Championships last month have been denied bail. Kevin Norton and James Stumbo were being assessed by the court to decide whether or not they planned to carry out their violent plans or alternatively if it was just a case of online bravado. However, the judge dismissed claims by the pairs lawyers that it was simply online bravado and is in the process of deciding whether they were one step away from creating a massacre.

    1. Just by looking at them you can tell they were not joking! They look unstable…fat motherfucker and skinny shithead…but as was stated before…crazy white people; can’t kill themselves in peace so they gotta bring down innocents…bless America!(non sarcasm)

      All third world country scum blaming gun laws, haha, when your government declares you carcasses useless…you would kill to own a gun…hahaha that’s mainly why the second amendment was created, to keep the government in check!

      BTW, that faggot that roams this site 24/7 likely fits the bill of one of those two pathetic man children. Neckbeard(no surprise) and generic crazy white dude…

      1. Uh… “Guns keep the government in check”? Are your sure you’re not crazy like the people you speak of? How do you explain a majority of European nations who either ban guns, just don’t invest in guns at all? Their governments are fine, and even if they weren’t fine you don’t use a fucking GUN to try and change your government. What the hell kind of crack pot idea is that?

        They have much MUCH, you know what? Practically NO shootings every year, and we’ve already had more shootings in certain areas of our country than all of last year. Like, holy shit, swallow your pride, guns are bad dude. Guns. are. baaaaad.

        1. You have your limited “freedom” because of these “bad guns”. The U.S. Which is what, 3 trillion in debt may very well one day decide to start shipping its citizens over to China to have them work cheap labor…eat up some of that debt..

          Keep an open mind, only crazy people walk around believing the government is out to be your friend…

          That said: then WHY was the second amendment implemented? For that very reason…I’m not saying lets go fight our government, I’m not, I’m saying when shit hits the fan and all order is lost(which is highly unlikely to happen but the possibility still exists) then, the people will have some say in how their lives should be run…

          Owning guns>not owning guns

          BTW…not all governments are as corrupt as the U.S…that’s why laws are different in different places…

          Oh, and I just agree with owning guns because it’s part of our “freedom” the last thing we need is more censorship and restrictions…
          FAGGOTS RUINED THE WORLD!

          1. You’re not gonna get anywhere trying to speak sense into these vermin…these sheep don’t know the first thing about freedom.

            Freedom>censorship

            1. Freedom ISN’T the greatest thing to ever exist. If there’s no responsibility attached to it, it’s almost worthless. Hey, what about my freedom to rape and murder people?

        2. Its people who are bad. Guns are inanimate objects that would rust back into the earth if it wasn’t for people wielding them.

          I think it’s hilarious that people think taking guns away, or banning guns would somehow cure all the sick and twisted people in this world… That’s like trying to kill an antbed by pouring a glass of water on it.

          1. “I think it’s hilarious that people think taking guns away, or banning guns would somehow cure all the sick and twisted people in this world…”
            It wouldn’t, but it surely would help a fucking lot to make sure that those people don’t have access to guns in the first place.

            And before you mention it, I’m aware of the fact that you need to pass a psychiatric evaluation before you can legally own a gun. Keyword ‘legally’.

          2. Taking guns away, or banning guns won’t cure all the sick and twisted people in this world indeed. However it should be taken into account that unlike knives or shear man power, guns are an extremely efficient, quick and easy way to kill people and they can cause mass damage. Also someone in distress acting upon impulse is more likely to cause a homicide if they have a gun in their possession than if they don’t simply because it is so easy and quick unlike other means which require planning or thinking.

            I guess what I’m getting at is that the nature of the tool should be taken into account. Following your logic, you would have no problem allowing any american citizen to own mass destruction weapons and bombs simply because they are “inanimate objects” and its the people we have to blame for their bad use. The nature of the weapon is significant. Yet no one seems to (want to) understand this.

          3. It would certainly make it harder for sick twisted people to get their way if they were abnned. Besides I bet most people owning guns don’t even know how to use them properly. It’s basically a birthright thing for you guys to have a gun, yet only a fraction knows what the hell they’re doing, or how to take care of it.

        1. …..America would be fine without alcohol, America would be fine without cannabis, America would be fine without knives….

          Logic of misterln= nonexistent

            1. Tell that to the 29 people killed and 130 injured in a Chinese subway by 10 men with knives.

              1. That’s just one exception…don’t deny that it’s much harder to kill someone with a knife than a gun.

                1. Stop moving that goal post just because I stated an event that actually happened that proved knives are just as capable of mass killings in a short amount of time.

            2. Oh, a pothead…let me give examples on how you CAN kill and injure large numbers of people in seconds…ahem

              Alcohol: drunk bus driver plows into crowd, plows into building…instant death, many injured. Also applicable but not limited to: oil tanker drivers on freeways, commercial flight pilots, train conductors, etc…

              Cannabis: high bus driver plows into crowd, plows into building…instant death, many injured. Also applicable but not limited to: oil tanker drivers on freeways, commercial flight pilots, train conductors, etc…

              Knifes: see “Chinese subway tragedy mentioned by other user”

              Give it up drug boy…guns serve a purpose

              Stupid weak minded fools are to blame for tragic events…as referenced in the examples given!

              1. Guns serve a purpose…to make stupid americunts feel safe and secure that ‘if mah government is being a big meenie we the people can stop them’….despite the fact that they probably already have millions of ways to suppress your population…guns or no guns.

      2. Only white people are bad. Black people, however, are perfect even though they’re Human beings, too. And even though Human beings are generally bad anyway, it’s still only whitey… You know what! Forget what I said about black people being Human beings, because they’re not. They’re not even people. Only white people are Humans. And if you tell me otherwise I will be offended.

        Wait, what even are white and black people? Who fucking knows. Maybe they’ll visit Earth someday.

    2. Funny, I expected to see Sasorri in this pic. But that fat bitch ain’t black! ; D

  1. Good, you let these viles of shit out on bail and you’re giving any other piece of shit an out. Online bravado or not, taking the weapon to the event is clearly contradicting that.

    1. Yup, sounds like bullshit to me, that it was a joke. If they were joking why the fuck did they bring the guns. “Oh they must have forgotten to take them out” MY ASS THEY FORGET ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THAT! People are so naive.

      I don’t care if they were invited, I don’t care if one of them was a writer for a famous Pokémon fan site. They both clearly have mental issues for owning so many big ass firearms. Illegally might I add. Let’s not forget that part.

  2. This bitch deserves it. Let him stay in jail so this sick fuck can be butt raped for trying to kill children.

  3. Poor manchildren, I almost feel bad for them.
    This was obviously “an epic joke XD” kinda thing. America and guns, eh, Ill rather not even get involved, Ill just say Im glad I dont live there.

    1. With all those shooting happening these days, they shouldn’t have joked about it, if you thought they were joking. And it’s terrifying for those present at the event. They could have gotten shot by community’s assholes.

    2. Those ain’t “man children”. They are just straight up children. And goddamn I hate that term “man children. It gives this idea that you have to act a certain way, or can’t enjoy certain hobbies just because you are a little older? Fuck that.

  4. How pathetic. Look at them in that picture. They look like dipshits. They deserve being denied a bail. Trying to hurt innocent familys and children, who love pokemon and were just trying to have fun.

    1. How can someone “look” like a dipshit? Superficial much? What they did is what makes them dipshits.

  5. These pieces of shit were really going to do it. The fact that a pair of kids were denied bail says a lot. Hell, even a dude arrested for beating his kid will be allowed to post bail. Hope they get sentenced to prison and for sure, the skinny dude will be “turned out”.

    1. They are 18 and 27 I think, not kids, they can be put in prison for life if they’ve done enough shit.

  6. Is that Sam from GoT? Lol

    Anyways, put them in jail, let ’em stay there until they’ve caught ’em all. The STDs, that is. Threatening children is no joke

  7. In reality they are just two little boys who thinks guns are “cool” and “toys”. They owned them without licenses, they deserve prison. Should have kept playing their Pokémon games instead of being ghetto fucks.

  8. I’m sorry, but I think these guys are innocent. The threat in question was posted in a Facebook group called Mayhem Pokemon Crew.

    James Stumbo wrote, “Kevin Norton and I are ready for the worlds Boston here we come!!!”
    Someone says, “Good Luck.”
    “With killing the competition?” James asks.
    “Haha yes,” he replies.

    I know a lot of people here, if they’ve ever competed in…anything, have heard the term “killing the competition”, or some variant, i.e., “I killed out there,” etc.

    Unfortunately, the photo of the guns suggests a more literal interpretation to the phrase, but given that they are called the “Mayhem Pokemon Crew”, I’m inclined to believe it was still metaphorical, i.e., we’re going to incite mayhem (but not really).

    I think the most damning thing the idiots did was take the guns in their car to the event, for whatever stupid reason. Since they owned them illegally, I don’t know what they were thinking. It isn’t like they could take them to the shooting range afterwards Nevertheless, if you are planning to shoot a place up, and you are serious about it, it doesn’t make any fucking sense to post it publicly on Facebook. The guy didn’t seem angry or brooding…just kind like “Hey, fuckers, got my guns and I’m going to the competition fuck shit up. See y’all there.” Too cheeky to be taken seriously.

    I’m glad they apprehended these two, but I don’t think we should be jumping to conclusions.

    1. People like you are the reason why Charleston occurred.

      If they were middle eastern, would you say the same thing? The fuck you would.

      1. I see it as a threat, if what you posted is the actual conversation between the fool’s then they deserve whatever jail time they get and some serious psychiatric evaluation before being let loose into society, and did nothing but make me feel more that they we’re going to do something completely stupid.

  9. Sure it’s online bravado… until someone dies! Who in their right mind would joke about this and carry real guns?

    They are social media whores just like the stupid criminals who even use Facetime to document their exploits in real time…

    1. Like that will solve anything. Death penalty is a gift to any life sentenced prisoner. An entire life locked away is a real punishment

  10. The way I see it, there’s no excuse for bringing that kind of weaponry to a public event. Attempted massacre deserves the same punishment as successful massacre. The United States gun control failure is very clear, it’s time to take notice of it. If lunatics like this can get the means to slaughter several people, the law has failed. Lock ’em up and make them an example to any other people wanting to try something like this.

  11. Why are these two asswipes only being held on illegal possession of a firearm and not conspiracy to commit murder? They planned to kill people, doesn’t matter that they were stopped, they were still going to carry out their plan until they were apprehended. Anyone defending these guys saying ‘it was only a joke’ should have their heads examined.

  12. Well, if they WASN’T serious, this will teach them not to EVER make threats again! Joking or not. Dumbasses.

    The big one reminds me of one of my nephews. LOL!

    1. Just like in western shows on tv. Everyone shoots everybody over the dumbest things. Mainly due to everyone owning a gun.

      1. “Stop looking at me like that!” *pulls out gun*

  14. Lol and Donald Trump wants Latino’s out of the US because of murderers and rapist that we are…
    They got their own fuck-ups right here and could be our neighbors…
    Anyways, anyone who does stupid shit like this, “joking” or not joking deserve this. There should be no tolerance whatsoever to this kind of attitude anywhere.

  15. With all of the fucking public mass shootings going on in the past few years, they should have known fucking better than to say the shit they said. If they were joking & just forgot to take the weapons out of their car, they should still do some jail time for having guns illegally & for making a joke in bad taste.
