Crazy People Are Dangerous

Posted on | September 20, 2022 | No Comments

Say hello to 51-year-old Missouri resident Jeremy Garnier, who in March 2020 decided it would be a good idea to dress up as comic-book villain The Joker and record a livestream threatening to kill a thousand people. Last week, he was sentenced to 60 days in jail and two years of probation for making terrorist threats. You will perhaps not be surprised to learn that (a) Garnier has a lengthy history of previous crimes (b) which he claims he committed to “in order to support his crack habit.”

Is the world getting crazier, or is it just that now we have social-media that allows people to broadcast their craziness?
