Valentine’s Day will not EVER be the same for the families and victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and if that isn’t enough — here are two different instances where kids recently hinted at more tragedy:
11-Year-Old Arrested for Threatening to Shoot Up Florida Middle School – blogged by: @ashleytearra (Swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a sixth-grader at Nova Middle School in Davie, Florida was arrested for threatening to shoot up the whole school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Local 10 News, the 11-year-old girl wrote a disturbing note, warning that she would be bringing a gun to the facility to kill all of the fellow students and teachers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, the handwritten message was placed under the school’s assistant principal’s office door. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I will bring a gun to school to kill all of you ugly a** kids and teachers, b****,” the letter read. “I will bring the gun Feb. 16, 18. Be prepared, b****!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authorities confirmed that the surveillance tape did show the student sliding the note beneath the door. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When confronted by officers, the child appeared to be frightened, upset, and teary-eyed, police reports said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She later confessed that she was demanded to write and deliver the note by another young female student who didn’t like her. The two didn’t like each other due to a recent conflict over a boy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The girl told officials that the other student had allegedly threatened to get a friend to beat her up if she didn’t follow through with the demand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She has since been cuffed and taken to the Broward Juvenile Assessment Center. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her name remains unidentified. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No word on if the student who orchestrated it, also faced any punishment.
Grandmother Finds Grandson’s Plans For School Shooting a Day Before Parkland Massacre – Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another student was plotting a mass shooting at a Washington state high school but didn’t get away with it because his grandmother turned his plans into police. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, just a day before the Parkland, Fla. high school terror attack, Catherine Katsel-O’Connor called the police after she found notes in her grandson’s journal about shooting students at ACES high school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The grandmother says she was alarmed by the evil ideas her grandson Joshua Alexander O’Connor’s kept in his journal. But what shocked her more was the semi-automatic rifle she found in his guitar case. "I'm preparing myself for the school shooting,” the teenager wrote, according to court documents. “I can’t wait. My aim has gotten much more accurate … I can’t wait to walk into that class and blow all those f—ers away." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As soon as authorities found out about the man’s plans they pulled him from his Kamiak High School class and arrested him. While in custody Joshua attempted to run away and kicked one of the police. In the end, police were able to subdue the man. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Joshua has been charged with attempted murder, assault of a police officer and armed robbery because of money he had stolen to fund his attack. His bail was set at $5 million.
