    Glad law enforcement jumped on this and were able to identify the kids ! I hope they are properly disciplined. So much time and resources wasted because of a ” prank “. Sadly, in this day and age threats of any kind must be taken seriously !

    I agree with you as well. I also feel they did it for the attention.

    I am so impressed with how intelligent and articulate the Florida students have been following the mass shooting. But then, a couple of nitwits remind us that the opposite also exists.
