South Park

A 21-year-old man was sen­tenced Thurs­day to 25 years in prison after admit­ting to post­ing threats against the cre­ators of South Park.

Court doc­u­ments said that Zachary Adam Chesser made posts that included the writ­ers’ home addresses and urged read­ers to “pay them a visit.”

Accord­ing to the doc­u­ments, Chesser encour­aged vio­lent jihadists to attack them for an episode on Com­edy Cen­tral that showed the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit.

Zachary Chesser will spend 25 years in prison for advo­cat­ing the mur­der of U.S. cit­i­zens for engag­ing in free speech about his reli­gion,” said U.S. Attor­ney Neil MacBride.

His actions caused peo­ple through­out the coun­try to fear speak­ing out — even in jest — to avoid being labeled as ene­mies who deserved to be killed. The fact that a young man from North­ern Vir­ginia could sup­port such vio­lence and ter­ror is a sober­ing reminder of the seri­ous threat that home­grown jihadists pose to this country.”
