Police Investigate Snapchat Gun Threat At Grosse Pointe North High School:
Ok, this is just getting repetitive now. Anyway, police were investigating a threat against Grosse Pointe North High School in Michigan after a threat was posted to Snapchat that had a picture of a student holding a gun with the caption “Don’t go to school today”. The student allegedly said he was trying to get the school to close for the day. No arrests have been made yet.
33-year-old Robert Paul Alexander Edwards, of Gulf County, Florida, has been charged with the second-degree felony of written threat to kill or do bodily injury. The man with four first names allegedly drew a sketch of a school shooting on his stepson’s homework. You can tell by his mugshot that he probably has a history of poor life choices.
The threat was deemed to be not credible, but what was this moron thinking? Did he honestly think it wouldn’t come back to bite him in the ass? If I had to hazard a guess, I would say there’s probably some mental health issues going on here, however, that should not excuse his actions. It makes me wonder if the child is in a safe environment.
Jefferson County in Colorado contains the most infamous school in the history of school shootings, Columbine. So it would be natural if parents became concerned about a possible shooting at the school their children attend. It might not be unfeasible for parents to be outraged when the threat of a school shooting is made at their children’s school and the parents aren’t informed of the incident.
At Governor’s Ranch School, also in Littleton where Columbine is, a student allegedly told another student he was going to go home, get his father’s shotgun and shoot the other student.
A threat assessment document, obtained by Denver7, indicates that one student was joking with other students about “being like Donald Trump,” and the other said, “I’m going to bring my Dad’s shotgun and shoot you.”
The threat was reported to a teacher who reported it to the school psychologist, however, law enforcement was not called. Why were police not called you might ask? Shouldn’t we be taking every step possible to prevent a future school shooting, especially at the Ground Zero of all modern school shootings? Normally I would say yes, but the students in question are 8-years-old and the school in question is Governor’s Ranch Elementary School. That sounds like one of the most pretentious public school names I’ve ever heard, so I’m not surprised the two parents sound like over-reactive divas who want to shield their kid from all negative emotions.
The parents of the student who made the threat were informed and the student was disciplined, but this isn’t enough for the pearl clutchers with their fainting couches, saying their family has been ruined by the event. They want the principal removed for not following the protocol set forth by the school district in the wake of Columbine.
It sounds like to me these parents are projecting their own over-emotional sensitivities onto their child. In the real world not inhabited by the pretentious and the melodramatic, the problem is solved with these four words: They’re 8-years-old.
If this had happened in a less prosperous school district, this would be a non-story.
Two separate students at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, Texas, were arrested for allegedly making unrelated threats to shoot up the school on the anniversary of Columbine. Both threats were made on the picture sharing app Snapchat. A freshman is said to have posted a video where he was pointing a gun at the camera and warned people not to show up to school on April 20th. A sophomore is said to have posted a picture of the butt of a gun with the message that he was doing this for ‘The heroes of Columbine’.
The fact that two separate threats were made on the same day at the same school scares the hell out of me. Both of these kids are probably what are known as columbiners. These are kids, usually, who for some reason or another identify with the Columbine shooters, usually because of falsehoods that have become legend since the Columbine shooting. Friendswood seems to have an inordinate amount of these columbiners as two were arrested back in December for bringing guns to Friendswood High School.
It’s not just sexual predators that parents have to be on the look out for with their kids’ social media accounts. While you may not want to admit it, there’s a chance your child could be on the path toward criminal behavior. Any kind of idolizing or sympathy toward school shooters is not just a phase, it’s a loud cry that they are in immediate need of mental healthcare.
A 17-year-old student from Port Neches-Groves High School in Port Neches, Texas, was arrested on April 13th for allegedly threatening a school shooting. The student, who I won’t name, allegedly told others of his desire to obtain a gun, which hallway would be the best for killing his victims, and what teachers and students he wanted to kill. The shooting was supposedly set to take place on April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine shooting. The suspect has been released on $100,000 bond after undergoing a mental evaluation. His lawyer claims his client was just discussing the Columbine anniversary in a historical context.
I haven’t read enough information to give an opinion on the guilt or innocence of the suspect but this was just the first in a number of arrests across the country that happened this year around the anniversary of Columbine.
The reason I’m not naming the suspect is because it’s plotters like this, if the charges are true, are really the ones seeking attention.
At a prep school in Charlotte, North Carolina, two idiot teens posted a picture to the photo sharing app Instagram that said “(School name) gon have a school shooter one day.” Other than that, there was really nothing threatening about the picture. It was just two kids standing there in what appears to be a parking lot. Neither kid looked all that threatening.
Of course since personal responsibility died some time ago, some of the parents of the suspended students are up in arms.
“None of us are happy with the decision,” said the parent. “We feel like this is going to follow our kids.”
She claims the school said that the suspension for endorsing the threat will stay on her daughters’ record until she graduates.
“Twenty plus students could’ve learned a lesson today, not necessarily been sent out of school for three days”.
There’s another lesson that could have been taught from this incident, the lesson that actions have consequences, even on trivial social media posts. Your kid probably wasn’t getting into Harvard anyway.
An 18-year-old student from East Stroudsburg High School North in Pennsylvania has been arrested for allegedly posting a rap song online called ‘Columbine’. He’s been charged with felony counts of aggravated assault and terroristic threats. Of course all the ‘Constitutional experts’ are calling this a violation of free speech, except it isn’t.
In the alleged rap song the student is said to have named staff members of the school by name in his threatening rap. Guess what kids. That makes it a threat which is not protected speech. It doesn’t matter how many samples or R&B Breaks you may have behind it, it’s still a threat. No word on how much time he’s looking at but since he’s 18 it’s big boy jail for him. Now we’ll find out how hard a rapper from the Poconos is.
I’m sure the same people would complain if he did shoot up the school asking why was nothing done to stop him when the signs were there?
Stop being outraged at everything. Be analytical and logical instead.
I can always tell when the new school year is about to start even though I don’t have school age kids anymore. I can usually tell because some mutant inevitably gets arrested for plotting or threatening a school shooting. This year is no different.
This year’s contestants are Marshall Judson, 18, and Matthew Murray, 17, both of Alamo Height High School in San Antonio, Texas. It seems the criminal geniuses were tripped up when someone else spotted their Facebook posts comparing themselves to the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold.
The initial post, which police say was made by Murray, was a graphic photo of the Columbine suspects lying in a pool of blood with the caption, “BEST FRIENDS TILL THE END!!”
Police said Judson responded, “TOTALLY WANNA HANG OUT ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL XD.”
In a Facebook exchange littered with typos, one said he thought he could get a car and another said, “lol can I borrow a shotgun I making the ipebombs,” police said.
They also discussed making different types of shotguns, police said, then Murray stated, “so wanna be Dylan klebold” and Judson responded, “lol yes matt,” and then, “I wanna b eric harris I acvt like himxD.”
No weapons were in their possessions and they’ve both been charged with making terroristic threats.
As usual no word on where the parents were in this case. Also no word on motive other than they’re mutants.
