You may have heard of a recent incident where a post on 4chan.org threatening the destruction of 7 NFL stadiums resulted in an indictment against a Wisconsin man. What you probably don't know is that the man in question is our very own atriumjake, a long-time contributor to the database.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of a $250,000 fine and 5 years in prison; authorities are reportedly seeking 2 to 3 years. Jake works in a grocery store, and his family is not well off at all. We are looking for ways to defray legal fees and fines for him, so we have decided to start a PayPal account. Please consider donating something, if only as a sign of protest against the paranoia and hysteria that are gripping the United States."
