For a mass shooting text message threat, a Florida fifth-grader is arrested
On Saturday, a 10-year-old boy was detained in Florida for threatening to carry out a mass massacre through text message.
He was detained and escorted to the Lee County Sheriff’s Department in a police cruiser by Cape Coral Patriot Elementary School student.
Sheriff Carmine Marceno, the Lee County sheriff, described this student’s actions as”This student’s behaviour is sickening, especially after the recent tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, Making sure our children are safe is paramount.”
These cases are handled by a separate department.
Because of the child’s age, the sheriff’s office’s School Threat Enforcement team contacted the Youth Services Criminal Investigations Division to handle the situation.
There were immediate alerts to these disturbing communications from the Sheriff’s School Threat Enforcement Team and a swift investigation into this case was launched by Youth Services Criminal Investigation Division because of how young the youngster was in this particular situation.
Officers responded immediately to “the threat,” Marceno insisted “Our schools will be governed by the rule of law! This danger was investigated by my staff without a second’s hesitation…NOT EVEN A SECOND’S “he went on to say.
Amidst criticism of the cops in charge of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, this arises as a result of the fact that it took them approximately an hour to enter the school and deal with the problem and kill gunman Salvador Ramos.
Police took the boy’s threats seriously and conducted an interview with him despite the fact that he is still a child.
“Right now is not the time to act like a little delinquent. It’s not funny,” Marceno commented. “This child made a fake threat, and now he’s experiencing real consequences.”
