Man who threatened South Park gets 12 years in prison

If you're a fan of South Park like I am, surely you remember a few years back when the South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone received death threats from a Muslim group over showing the Muslim prophet Mohammed in a bear costume.  Turns out those threats were from the "Revolution Muslim" website, which was founded by Jesse Curtis Morton (a Muslim convert from Brooklyn, NY).  Along with South Park, others were targeted; Morton used words such as "we'll slit your throat" to describe the groups actions.  His attorney tried to argue that the website was for "engaging in dialogue" but I'm calling bullshit on that one.  And so are the courts, who sentenced Morton to 12 years in prison. Justice!
