Dad of Facebook 'massacre' joker: He's been beaten in jail

Justin Carter   
What passes for justice can sometimes seem extremely unjust.
Take the case of 19-year-old Texan Justin Carter. He's been in jail for months for writing the following on Facebook to a fellow "League of Legends" gamer who questioned his sanity: "I think Ima shoot up a kindergarten. And watch the blood of the innocent rain down. And eat the beating heart of one of them."
His family says that he was joking. His father says that he even added "LOL" and "JK" to make this clear.
However, a Canadian woman saw his post, discovered where Carter lived, and called his local police. The rest is misery.
He was arrested and thrown in jail. He has sat there for months because a judge decided that Carter, of all people, deserved bail of $500,000.
Still waiting for the legal process to meander its way toward truth, Carter is now reportedly suffering heinous attacks.
His father, Jack, told NPR: "Without getting into the really nasty details, he's had concussions, black eyes, moved four times from base for his own protection."
Why would Justin Carter be the object of such abuse? Has word somehow got around that he is really some sort of child-threatener?
