Not sure, but I think he had an Instagram account that showed him tagging things. Don’t really remember though.

Kudos to the boy’s father for convincing him to turn himself in. The police must be thankful as well. Blessings to all

John, perhaps he would be better served some other way than sitting in a jail cell, or wishing decapitation upon him.

Yes his father says he has autism, but when you read the fathers quotes st other sources he blames everyone else instead of looking in the mirror . He blames his sons friends and the internet. My son has autism,and if my son did this, I wouldn’t allow a suicidal behavior to continue. It’s a continuation of the ” victim culture”.

You’re right, but it still doesn’t make what he did right. His crime was petty and I doubt he will be sitting in rikers so I wouldn’t worry.

He has a 33 count graffiti charge from 2015 pending. Stop coddling. He won’t see Rikers, nor should he, but the denial/downplay of his responsibility is ridiculous. His own father said ” he’s not a trouble maker”. Really?
