(Newser) – If 18-year-old Cameron D'Ambrosia was just trying to buff up his image as budding rapper "CammyDee," he picked the worst possible time and place. The high school student in the Boston suburb of Methuen is being held on $1 million bail and charged with making terrorist threats because of some Facebook posts, reports the Eagle-Tribune. If the charges stick and he's convicted, it could mean 20 years. A hearing is set for next week to try to determine how much of a threat he really poses.

Among the lines that caught the attention of a classmate at Methuen High School, according to the Boston Herald: "(Expletive) a boston bominb (sic) wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous rapping, and beat every murder charge that comes across me!” And: "So when u see me (expletive) go insane and make the news, the paper, and the (expletive) federal house of horror known as the white house, Don’t (expletive) cry or be worried because all YOU people (expletive) caused this (expletive)." Police also searched his home, seizing his laptop and his Xbox, reports Gawker.

An white, Italian rapper with bad timing? Looks like he's an idiot all the time! The real problem is that he could face twenty years for taking crap to one of his friends online about how famous he'll be. I don't really get that. It's a shame that his first amendment rights are being violated- although he is a moron.

Boston has turned into a real police state. Worse than China.

I didn't see anything in there that was a threat.. He said that the Boston bombings were nothing, and that we should wait to see what he does, but he doesn't say anything about he himself making a bomb doing anything like that. For all we know, what he meant by wait to see what he does, could mean, that wait to see how explicit his album is or how dope his raps are. If this is really a threat, then Jeff Dunham should be in jail for his Ahmed the Terrorist act.
