Even A Casual School Threat Is Taken Seriously
News stories of Illinois teens threatening students at their high school are becoming common, and authorities are taking a strong stance against such delinquent acts. When casual threats seen on the internet or social media sites are reported to the school, state and federal authorities get involved and charges may be filed. School threats can result in felony charges.
Sometimes a student will say a casual threat was merely a dare and they did not mean to cause harm. Bomb threats, threats to shoot students or teachers, even if casually made, are not taken lightly by the police.
