I'm so happy they're catching and charging these kids who are making serious, dangerous threats at our schools. When I was in High School, Columbine happened. By my senior year, every single student knew the seriousness of dangerous threats, that are never funny. I feel for kids growing up in this era, it's definitely a different world than during my school days.
I say throw the book at these kids! If I knew by my senior year of High School just after Columbine that there is no place for these scary threats, then these kids obviously should know better. You can see more about the teens being charged in Jefferson, Wantage and Vernon by clicking here.
