10-Year-Old Florida Boy Arrested For Text Threatening Mass Shooting

Cape Coral, Florida – A fifth grade boy was arrested on Saturday for a text message threatening to carry out a mass shooting just days after the Uvalde mass shooting.

The 10-year-old boy is a student at Patriot Elementary School in Cape Coral, Florida.

“This student’s behavior is sickening, especially after the recent tragedy in Uvalde, Texas,” Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said. “Making sure our children are safe is paramount. We will have law and order in our schools! My team didn’t hesitate one second…NOT ONE SECOND, to investigate this threat.”

“Right now is not the time to act like a little delinquent,” Sheriff Carmine Marceno said. “It’s not funny. This child made a fake threat, and now he’s experiencing real consequences.”

Fox News reported:

A 10-year-old fifth-grade Florida boy was arrested Saturday and charged with making a written threat to conduct a mass shooting, according to police.

When the juvenile suspect, a student at Patriot Elementary School in Cape Coral, Florida, allegedly sent the threatening text, the School Threat Enforcement Team was immediately notified and began analytical research, police said.

The Youth Services Criminal Investigations Division assumed the case due to the age of the child. Police arrested the boy after detectives interviewed him and determined probable cause for his arrest.

    GOOD!
    It’s about time they got tough on these little bastards.

    For far too long, kids have been getting away with far too much.

    It’s time to bring back CONSEQUENCES!

    Another wannabe. Good for the police in jumping all over this. If the consequences are severe enough it’ll make others think twice. He should be suspended from school, fined, Required to attend weekly therapy sessions for the next year and sentenced to community service. If that sounds too harsh just remember those 19 little kids whose lives were brutally ended by some asshole.

    Here you go! Now, this is what accountability looks like.

    The parents don’t raise their kids properly, then the police get them.

    THIS is what’s been missing from our society. No more, “he’s mentally ill, he was abused, he didn’t get a good night’s sleep.”

    Sick of the excuses. You break the law making threats against someone’s life, you get locked up. Doesn’t matter if he’s 10 or 30, we need accountability; not even “mental health” programs—I don’t trust therapists and psychologists to tell me what’s inside someone’s mind (can be faked) any more than I trust doctors/politicians to tell me about COVID.

    We have an accountability problem. Think about how Dems INTENTIONALLY cut police, malign police, allow criminals to escape bail, let criminals out of prison for laughable reasons. They do this so the criminals can unleash chaos with not only guns, but also knives, etc. When the criminals have leeway, OF COURSE they’re going to commit more crimes. Then, the Dems say, “See? We need the guns off the street.”

    If we commit to enforcing our current laws, we’d far less violence and crime overall.

    Solid people do not make threats like this. This child spoke out with a rage, sadness, whatever to get attention. We do not like what he said. We know it’s messed up. He probably knows too. That’s why he did this. Something is wrong -with or for him. Help him! Hopefully he’s not lost forever.his parents need investigated too!Vg
