Does Blatant Satire equal Death Threats

Texas Penal Code is very clear regarding Death Threats. But will justice be served?

Texas Penal Code § 42.07(a)(2) is quite clear on what Burleson Police Department will (should) do to handle this situation:

(a) A person commits an offense if, with intent to harass, annoy, alarm, abuse, torment, or embarrass another, the person:

(2) threatens, in a manner reasonably likely to alarm the person receiving the threat, to inflict bodily injury on the person or to commit a felony against the person, a member of the person’s family or household, or the person’s property;

And the fine for Mr. George Dossett’s is also clearly defined:

Assault By Threat is a Class C Misdemeanor and:

Sec. 12.23. CLASS C MISDEMEANOR. An individual adjudged guilty of a Class C misdemeanor shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $500.

“In cooperation with the community” we can anticipate Burleson Police Department protecting the community, right? George Dossett’s charges should result in the community being protected by seeing a charge appear in the next few days.

However…. will that actually happen?
