Carlos Anthony HollinsLA PLATA, MD – More social media stupidity in the news after 20-year-old Carlos Holling took to Twitter to state, “IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LA PLATA.”

Not surprising to anyone with a handful of firing neurons in their brain, some white people in La Plata were a tad concerned and notified local police.

“There were a lot of folks calling in,” said La Plata Police Chief Carl Schinner. “There was a lot of concern. Our Facebook page, lots of information from people saying they’re scared, can you tell us more.”

To show that he was not going to stand for this kind of stupidity in his town, he called some officers in early and kept other officers to work overtime so that there was high visibility of officers in the area.

He also set out to identify and apprehend the person responsible for the Tweet as soon as possible.

“Some officers here were able to do a little data mining on Twitter and find out that Mr. Hollins worked at a local department store at one time,” said Schinner. “From there, we were able to establish his identify.”

It didn’t take long, and Hollins was taken into custody near his home Wednesday night. He told investigators that the Tweet was just a joke, and they responded by charging him with threats of mass violence. The judge found it just as hilarious and set Hollins’ bond at $250,000.

“I think it is something we have to take serious and something we did take very seriously,” Schinner said.

Tough spot for police when dealing with this kind of stupidity. They’ll get blasted for over-reacting, or for not reacting seriously enough when one of these morons makes good on their threats.
