What happens when school is the problem though? High school can definitely be a cruel place and when things get so bad that you don't want to go the desire to learn can be lost.(Not to mention that some of our smartest teenagers are the victims of bullying)

Wake up and smell the coffee? Seriously? He was depressed and in need of help. Who are we, or you to judge anyone? Times have changed and social media is a part of that. Perhaps you are more in need of help than he is. My 17 year old is a "burgar flipper," as you put it...and I am VERY proud of him.

Alex you make a good point, but book smarts and life/street smarts are two different things. Someone could be intelligent without knowing how to outsmart a bully because its not as black and white as something a long the lines of math. I wish I could solve my problems with the quadratic formula lol but there is not formula for depression or bullies.

Yes this kid needs help not the book thrown at him that will just make him more suicidal, and probably ruin his future. I truly hope he finds and gets the help he needs.

Bullying back is never the answer...stronger army or not. I was bullied all of the way through school, and it caused a lot of emotional pain. I hated school. I found my own way later to "fight back." I began keeping a 4.0, went on to college, and then to graduate school. I was able to turn my life around, with God's help. Once in a while, I run into one of my ex-bulliers. They are not as well off, or happy.

I have 2 elementary aged children who attend Jayennel. I was made aware of 'threats made toward FSU, a specifically named elementary school and a West Side School.' I immediately went and picked my children up where they were under a Lockdown. I saw State Police, Sheriff's Dept and City Police vehicles surrounding the school at different locations. We were made to show ID before we gained entrance to pick up our children. My children have been practicing 'Safety Drills' at school since the Sandy Hook Shooting as well. My hat goes off to the staff at Jayenne for being able to know what procedures needed to take place in an event of this nature. I know my children were safe, but as a mother you need your children with you in order to 'know' they are safe. I do feel that parents should have been notified that there was a possible threat and schools were currently locked down. We get an automated call from the board/school on other things, I think that this should have been acknowledged as well. I can't imagine learning from Facebook that my child's school was locked down for a possible gunman. I hope that this policy gets looked into and appropriate notification system goes into effect. As for the police 'overreacting.' ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!!! They did not know what/who they were dealing with when they were dispatched to the schools. The threat was made toward INNOCENT CHILDREN which makes the situation even more serious. I'm sure Columbine and Sandy Hook WISH for the chance to have their police officers 'overreact.' I'd much rather have the schools locked down and police onsite monitoring than dealing with children who have been murdered for no reason at the one place we shouldn't have to worry about it happening. I'm sure the majority of school shootings happen at a small town where nobody thought it could happen. I'm proud to say although we are a small town who never thought this would happen here, we were still able to control the situation by the quickness of action provided by both the Marion County School System and Police Departments. Thanks to them I am able to continue to hold my children today and although I have NEVER been as scared as I was Friday, know in my heart that even if the unthinkable happened and a shooting had occurred, policy and procedure went as practiced. Say what bad things you want to about the Marion County Police, but they did not think twice about taking care of the kids. They didn't think about their families at home praying no harm would come from this threat, they were thinking about our children. I am forever grateful for that. They put their life on the line daily for a county who bad mouths them and blames them for things out of their control, and for a measly pay at that. THANK YOU TO ALL THE FIRST RESPONDERS WHO TOOK CARE OF THE COUNTIES CHILDREN FRIDAY. You ARE appreciated. THANK YOU TO MARION COUNTY SCHOOL STAFF for taking care of our children also. You also get overlooked and blamed too easily for things that are out of your control. I'm sure you would have much rather been with your own family Friday as opposed to protecting mine, but I'm thankful you care enough to do so. YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!

Please quit laying blame on the boy's parents. Mental illness is a serious epidemic that needs more effort and time placed on it. Our children feel they have no other outlet than to shoot, kill or bully their way through life. This needs to end today!!! Talk to your children. Talk to your friends' children, to your neighbor's children. Be the mentor or friend they need. You may just save their life. Or an innocent child caught in the line of fire.

Holy moly is right. Lol idk I agree that the school's precautions were necessary and I'm thankful that I know that my little brother will be taken care of if an actual threat occurs. However, I also feel that a lot of fear and anxiety could've have been prevented. Rather than keeping the situation calm an organized things kind of got out of hand. Parents weren't being properly notified and the news couldn't keep a concrete story so a lot of inaccuracies definitely made the situation more stressful than it needed to be. I know many of fairmont's police officers and even some who were involved wouldn't even be able to tell you what actually happened that day-_-
