No actual gun, just a threat. "I agree " is correct! The only way to stop this is at home. It's already a gun free zone......

So who is this kid seems awfully strange a 14 makes a threat of a gun and nothing happens and it seems like the whole thing is downplayed.

That's what I thought also! His family isn't from around here. The Herald Citizen's article is absolutely absurd!!! Why would kids ever trust anyone to tell something like this if they're made to look like the bad guys? Shame on the sheriff, school and paper for their article!
no name huh

Yeah I sure wouldn't want to tell anyone anything after that. I'm not saying the kid doesn't need help but the whole downplaying the bad things that happen is how alot of small towns get to where they are today. Especially ours....

Agreed! I think the police department really dropped the ball on this one. They should have let the parents know what was going on instead of keeping us in the dark while we worried ourselves sick. All I heard was some kid threatend to kill some kids and I could't find anyone to give me facts instead of town hear say. I don't know why they have kept this so quite but I believe we would feel a little better if they talked to us and let us judge for our self if we thought our kids would be in any danger to continue attending school there.

Maybe you know it all people on here need to go talk to the principal about your concerns instead of gossiping about it on here!! There are some facts that you have all missed out on!

There must be a bit more to the story here. Being "from away" is sometimes a justification for a lot of bullying, not saying that is what happened, however I don't know what the "ways" are NOW but in the past a boy had to fight his way through the local bullies when he came into the school "from away". Only then, and IF he accepted that challenge, would they leave him alone. Hopefully times have changed from the 70's....Only those in charge know the rest of the story.

I don't know who the hell you think you are but you need to shut the f*** up about her. You're pretty sorry talking about a CHILD. You know nothing about her.
