Blount County sheriff's deputies and Oneonta police arrested Dakota Kent at his Cleveland home this afternoon, Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey confirmed. He is charged with making a terrorist threat, and is being held without bond in the Blount County Jail. Casey said she asked that bond be denied until Kent undergoes a mental evaluation.
Kent, who goes by Koty Kent on Facebook, wrote the post early today. Almost immediately, several people responded to his post, two of them saying, "It's too soon." To that, Kent replied, "Yeah, they won't even be in class for another 12 hours."
First of all, arresting him was a massive overreaction. An understandable overreaction, but still an overreaction. Still, what a ing idiot. He's lucky he said this on Facebook--had he said it in public, it's even odds he gets the shit kicked out of him.
