Police found the boy who sent the text message at school charged him breach of peace and first-degree falsely reporting an incident.

No grounds for charges here. It was third party information. The false information must be directly reported to the police.

Damn right there's grounds for charges. He completely wasted precious police resources and probably scared the crap out of his father. When are kids going to learn there are consequences for their actions?

Glad the little punk got caught. Hopefully he is not allowed to get away with it. And hopefully the parents will not try suing the police for arresting their son, like that b*tch from Clinton.

What happened to the SWAT team? How come they didn't storm the school and shoot everybody, like they do when criminals give them a "tip"? Where are all the knocked down doors? What no tear gas?

HUH! Shouldn't the cops be punished for not following procedure? I mean, how many times have we heard that a tip leads to the "proper procedure" of knocking down doors, tear gassing the occupants, tasing the kids, shooting and killing residents, killing the pets, and then checking out the address and the "tip"?

It is obvious these cops did not follow procedure. Or we have been lied to many times.

If there was a student suspected of having a gun why was the school never put into lock down?
