My question involves criminal law for the state of: Wisconsin, but anywhere in general.
When reading most online forums, you tend to come across trolling comments of various extremes. This isn't a question regarding anything I have done, but rather that I have observed. If someone posts online a claim to have committed some serious crime, is there any repercussions to it? For purposes of this question, I am only referring to completely fabricated crimes, and not claiming credit for a true crime.
For example, if someone posts on a message board that they committed 10 murders, and somehow they are reported and able to be identified and questioned, would anything happen to them when they state they were just trying to get an angry reaction out of readers?
