The school year has started back up in some parts of the country and with a new school year comes new threats.
In Mobile County, Alabama, a 17-year-old male student of Mary G. Montgomery High School was arrested after allegedly calling in both a bomb threat and a school shooting threat.
In Tulare, California, police there arrested a 15-year-old male after he posted a Snapchat of himself holding a gun while referencing the song ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ which is about a fictional school shooting. The gun was found to be an airsoft gun.
A 13-year-old male student of Swift Creek Middle School in Tallahassee, Florida, was arrested after a conversation between him and another student on social media was discovered by police.
Police said the student had posted a picture of himself holding a bag roughly two months ago alongside the caption “Let’s see if I can shoot the pistol with my left hand.”
Two weeks ago, another person commented on the picture, stating: “Let’s see if we can shoot up the school with both.” The 13-year-old student allegedly then responded “I’m ready let’s goo.”
Not only are these kids putting other people in danger with their acts but they could be putting themselves in danger as well. With the way things are right now, the wrong kid is going to make one of these threats and end up sparking a dangerous confrontation with police where their own blood could be spilled.
