    Unhappy Student Spends 83 Days in Jail, Faces Terrorism Charges, 20 Years in Prison ...

    Lucas Gerhard, 20, was studying criminal justice at Lake Superior State University in Michigan with the goal of becoming a law enforcement officer. On August 23, 2019, Lucas posted a photo of his lawfully purchased and registered AR-15 to a select group of snapchat friends, writing, “This oughta make the snowflakes melt, aye? And I mean snowflakes as in snow.” Lucas was almost immediately arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat, which is a felony and could bring a sentence of 20 years in prison. GPM spoke to Lucas’ father, retired Marine Colonel Mark Gerhard, about what happened. - Teresa Mull

    Here’s what Col. Gerhard had to say in his own words: Lucas is a very conservative young man, and he’s very vocal about it. He’s not one to shy away and back down from an argument. In today’s college environment, where seemingly a majority of the student body and a lot of the educators are trending liberal, Lucas found himself in a rolling dog fight up there his first two years. He’s had a lot of run-ins with various progressive activists up there. It’s a small school — there are only roughly 2,000 students. Lucas was going up there for Criminal Justice — Law Enforcement. He wants to be a cop, and they have a great program. He fought through a lot of roadblocks. ...

    Talking about guns on social media is the modern day equivalent of being a heretic. I doubt they will be able to make those charges stick but it all depends on everything else that he has posted and said. Sounds like he has been in a battle all along. The story does not really give us the true context. That said, I find it disturbing that his post is considered "terrorism" while the liberal crowd post out right threats and do not get called out for it.

    Why would a reportedly conservative student enroll in an obviously liberal college, in the first place?

    Unless he has made outright threats and it can be proven, I don't see a case against him. Unless there is a lot more that isn't in this story.

    If what is posted is the total extent of the charges I think he'll walk. Then he should sue for wrongful arrest.

    This burns me up in ways I can even come close to expressing here.

    If this kid, an Eagle Scout with aspirations of a career in law enforcement, does not get the case dismissed. His future is ruined, he will never be able to become a cop and his 2A rights will be denied.

    Lucas’ father Mark, who is a retired Marine colonel that has worked for many years in the federal government, told Big League Politics that he understands why the campus would take a possible threat so seriously. What he doesn’t understand is why prosecutors would continue pursuing such a case when it is abundantly clear that his son poses no threat to public safety. As the case develops, it is becoming clear that the intent is to make a statement and strip Lucas of his constitutional liberties forever.

    It is infuriating to me that the left can blatantly call for the physical harm and even death to people they don't like, but let a conservative say they don't agree with them, and the conservative is a terrorist? There are no words--at least that I can put here and not get banned.
