He's going to shoot himself in the back of the head five times before hanging himself in jail. Screenshot this.

Well, yes, you do tend to get sent to jail when your bail is revoked.

The difference, unfortunately, is that Martin Shkreli was out on bail.
He wasn't due sentencing until January 12, 2018, for his Securities Fraud violation.
When you are currently on bail, any minor thing that is reported to the police can easily be taken as an act of being a threat to others or yourself.
Unfortunately, this is nothing more than media only stating the "LOLZHILLDAWGHAIR" story and not the fact that there's contextual information that is relevant as to why he's being thrown into jail.

The difference? The difference is that threatening to assassinate the president is a federal crime and treason. Why is Martin the only one goi g to jail?

"Person A" making blanket threats about killing President Trump has no prior history of committing a crime or any genuine evidence to show that the threat is serious.
"Person B" (Martin Shkreli) is out on bail after having been found guilty on several criminal charges.
Prior history is always more important than blanket statements.
It would be no different than locking up an eight-year old child for threatening to "blow up the school" when said child has Autism or any other disorder versus an eight-year old who has already brought a handgun to school and threatened to kill someone who he/she did not like.
Contextual information is one of the most important aspects of our criminal system.
Unless, of course, you would rather hearsay or out-of-context phrasing be admissible in our court system.

In a Dataminr search of Twitter posts since Inauguration Day containing the phrase "assassinate Trump" more than 12,000 tweets came up.

This article was written on February 2nd and is just about twitter threats. I'd imagine its way beyond 12k at this point

and internet trolls don't count

Yes, they do.

See Amyas's post. Not to mention all of the teachers saying kill trump, rappers making assassination music videos, and celebrities beheading him.

Internet trolls still count. A threat is a threat. Its hard to know how real it is as the most minor of things have turned into blood thirsty rampages from online posts. Its only a troll till they go out and do it then you cry "how could we have missemissed this".

Well, that depends on what states Voodoo is still illegal in.

I have never threatened a cricket in my life. Not Jiminy, not Chester, not Buddy Holly's band, and certainly not "Beat Bugs"'s Crick.

Yyyyeah, think you're right on that one.
And with the "I'm not crazy!" emphases in the post, put me in for a few bucks on Amyas' "Dead in prison" pool.
("I am under no psychological duress....I have stored several files where friends can retrieve them in emergencies." O-kayyyy... )

It's the narcissistic ones that always snap when the curtain comes down.
