Land of the free and the home of the brave, eh?
My suggestion: (1) make black humour illegal. (2) Imprison England.
My issue with the sentence: he followed up with LOL and JK (just kidding), and we do not know the context of the words, but according to the article League of Legends players use "toxic" language frequently. The quote was brought to the attention of the police by a woman in Canada, probably the model of politeness. Do you really expect her to interpret the context of his words correctly? I for one do not assume someone is serious when he/she suggest to eat the beating heart of anything. Also, if you ever were a teenager, I imagine changes are high you used totally inappropriate language at some point. Plus, Dr. A is right: Penny Arcade's theorem applies.
People in the US are scared easily because of their negative experiences. Instead of imprisoning teenagers, though, they should make access to weapons more difficult. You do not hear people asking for that in Texas, though! A shame.
P.S.: Yeah, the troll definitely deserves it more. Not sure about two years though.
