Of course he was escorted to the office for questioning and police called. Now mind you this happened in front of 25 kids and a teacher. By 4pm the police were treating it as a rumor and issued a statement as such, by 5pm local media were running stories. Of course social media lit up like a christmas tree with comments by children and parents.
At 6:20am Thurs. morning a robotic call from the principle, stating the situation was blown out of proportion and everything was mostly a rumor BUT there would be extra police protection at the school yesterday.
Needless to say 352 out of 700 kids didn't go to school yesterday.
The boy making threats seems to be the victim of bullying at school as he is openly gay. Where does the fault lie in this ? My feelings are with the school, they should be aware of what is happening, teachers hear confrontations everyday and excessive teasing, maybe it is time to get off the royal pedestal and react for a change.
The students went from happy to panic in a matter of minutes, their security had now been taken away . Thank god the boy had not already brought a gun. In this area every kid has been brought up with firearms in the home. Hunting is a way of life here, nothing unusual.
Seeing 300+ kids went to school I wonder how many had hidden a gun in their cars or trucks just in case. Another way of interpreting 'Better Be Safe Than Sorry '
