A student at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) was arrested after one of his tweets included a threat to kill his professor for scheduling an exam early in the morning.

via The Hill:

FAU police arrested Rafael Decomas last week after receiving a tip about a Twitter post from Decomas, according to local news outlet WPTV.

His Twitter post stated “i gern (expletive) kill dis professor bey this is my confession to a premeditated murder” in a direct tweet to another user appearing to be his girlfriend.

Decomas is a commuter student and was upset he would have to wake up at 5 a.m. to be able to get to campus by 7:00 a.m., according to police reports.

The 20-year-old student was charged with written threats to kill or do bodily injury,. 

Decomas told police he did not intend to harm his professor or anyone else. He was released on bond from Palm Beach County Jail last week following the incident.

Threatening to kill someone is never the move, however, we totally understand his frustration.
