A former Virginia Tech student who posted a violent threat on Yik Yak has now taken a plea deal to avoid further jail time.
Back in April 2015, Ki Ung “Eddie” Moon posted to the notoriously anonymous social network, “another 4.16 moment is going to happen tomorrow. Just a warning.” That date, April 16, refers to the shooting massacre that happened at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007 when 33 people were killed.
Not long after, Moon turned himself in to the police, where he initially faced criminal charges of harassment using a computer. According to the Roanoke Times, that charge was changed to disorderly conduct as part of an agreement with local prosecutors.
