A Massachusetts high school student is being detained with a $1 million bail bill after being arrested for making bomb threats in an online rap video.

According to the Boston Herald, 18-year-old Cameron Dambrosio – who posts novice rap videos under the name 'Cammy Dee' on YouTube, posted rap lyrics suggesting he wanted to kill people and outdo the Boston Marathon bombings – which left 170 people injured and three people dead when twin blasts hit the race's finishing line on April 15.

The lyrics to the rap, which was posted on Facebook read: "I’m not in reality. So when u see me (expletive) go insane and make the news, the paper, and the (expletive) federal house of horror known as the white house, Don’t (expletive) cry or be worried because all YOU people (expletive) caused this (expletive)."

Methuen Police Chief Joe Solomon told The Valley Patriot: "He posted a threat in the form of rap where he mentioned the White House, the Boston Marathon bombing, and said 'Everybody you will see what I am going to do, kill people'."

D’Ambrosio faces up to 20 years in jail on charges of communicating terrorist threats. "I do want to make clear he did not make a specific threat against the school or any particular individuals but he did threaten to kill a bunch of people and specifically mentioned the Boston Marathon and the White House," the police chief added. "The threat was disturbing enough for us to act and I think our officers did the right thing."

Court records and police reports released yesterday (May 2) revealed that police seized an Xbox 360 gaming console and computer equipment from D’Ambrosio’s home Wednesday. The records also show that he admitted having written the Facebook posting to an officer.
