what is the scoop? Herd a black boy made some threats to some white boys that he was gonna go home get a gun and shoot them. Herd the police just pushed it aside until the higher ups in the school made them act.(typical pville cops) They found a gun and lots of bullets at his house. Why so hush hush. Is this story a story whats is the deal?

It was handled, by the police and school! No need to get excited over this. There was NO gun at school only a kid upset, making mindless threats.

ANY time there is talk, then it shouldn't be considered "mindless" and ever more the reason to get excited. What does it take to get serious then????

No threat should ever be taken as mindless. It should be taken serious. Especially these days! We live in a different world now.

you are correct there was no gun at school but he did have one at home with all the ammo just like he said he had at school. Cops are the ones who didn't take it seriously. The kid did get kicked out of school. But for it to be mindless is way off base. This is serious stuff!!! And it should be handled that way. People think since this is a small town that it wont happen well think again. IT CAN AND DOES!!

The boy who made the threat was on the basketball team and the incident occurred in the locker room after a game. The boy did make a violent threat and the mother of the kid that was threatened called the police. They did say they would let the school administration handle the incident. The boy was kicked off the basketball team, served 10 days out of school suspension and is now in PAC for the rest of the school year. The mother of the boy that was threatened said she did not want to take a chance that the boy would actually go home and get a gun and show up at their house with a gun. There have been rumblings from people saying she should not have called the police and made a big deal of the incident but isn't it a big deal? This boy clearly said he was going to blow the boys fu*(&^% head off. This type of statement cannot go unheeded these days. You have to take these statements seriously these days because you never know when if the threats will become reality.

Any threat to harm somebody now falls under the law of "terroristic acts." So the threat should have been handled by the police. If the City PD did not want to handle it, they should have turned the case over the Highway Patrol. I guarantee the HP would not have told the school to handle it. The kid would be in custody so he could not carry out his threat. Now if the boy gets the chance, he just might go ahead and shoot the other boy. Then the liability would fall back on the school and the P'ville PD for not following protocol for a death threat. The kid had the gun, the ammunition, and the will to kill, or he would have never made the threat in the first place. If I were the threatened boy's mother, I would contact the highway patrol, tell them how the situation was handled, and see what they had to say about it. Death threats are not idle threats.

Your ar sooooooooooo right. As parents, we need to know about anything like this happening at school. Why are the PD and Superintendant keeping this hush? Who are they protecting. It appears to be the kid who made the threat. Somebody has some explainin' to do to the rest of the parents and students.
