Man Who Threatened "South Park" Creators Gets 25 Years in Prison

Posted: February 25th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Man Who Threatened "South Park" Creators Gets 25 Years in PrisonSubmit Comment
The man who encouraged the murder of Matt Stone and Trey Parker over an episode of "South Park" that portrayed the Muslim prophet Muhammed dressed as a bear was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday.

Zachary Chesser had written in multiple internet posts over a four-month period last year that the "South Park" creators should "wind up like Theo Van Gogh," who was murdered by a radical Muslim because he objected to the Dutch filmmaker's negative portrayal of Islamic society.

But Stone and Parker were only a piece of the case against Chesser, who also tried on two occasions to join al-Shabab, a terrorist group in Somalia, and encouraged like-minded people on the internet to leave suspicious packages in public places in the US so that if and when real bombs were planted they'd go unnoticed.

"Zachary Chesser will spend 25 years in prison for advocating the murder of US citizens for engaging in free speech about his religion," said US Attorney Neil MacBride. "His actions caused people throughout the country to fear speaking out -- even in jest -- to avoid being labeled as enemies who deserved to be killed."

Sad fact, you are right

I am sure Parker and Stone will make an episode about this too!

I work in Federal Prison, and yes, they do have Comedy Central, but none of the gangs let anyone watch it.

He gets 25 years for rounding up and wanting to join a group because the South Park creators portrayed a religious figure in a derogatory manner knowingingly,

And the court does what to the South Park guys?

Errrrrrrrrr OK U S A.

f*ck their pathetic pedophilic religious figure. Our freedoms allow us to poke fun at whoever we want.
And nobody railroaded the douche in question. He proudly admitted his guilt in aiding a terrorist organization.
