Browsing: Crazy Threats

sabin.middle.school.bulldogReading from the Voice Media empire: News that two thirteen-year-olds who allegedly compiled a “kill list” related to their middle school have been arrested hardly qualifies as shocking at this point. In the more than eighteen years since the April 1999 attack at Columbine High School, folks have seen far too many instances of young students being busted for alleged school threats and violent plots, as documented here. Westword has the story.

Her sentence is similar to, but slightly longer than, the one meted out against Brooke Higgins, her alleged co-conspirator. Here’s why. Westword has the story.

Two Clear Brook High School students were arrested Thursday after threatening to shoot up the school—on the 18th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting.

Just as school was starting, around 7:20 a.m., the teens were pulled out of class. And by 8:45 a.m. they were arrested by the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. One of the teens had told several students not to come to school Thursday because at 10:30 he was “going to honor his heroes, the ‘Columbine Shooters,'” according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, which is reviewing charges. The teen had posted a photo on social media showing himself pointing a pistol at two schoolmates in the hallway.

A Houston police officer shot his neighbor during a dispute over a dog Thursday evening, Houston police said Friday.

According to police, off-duty Officer Jason Loosmore knocked on his 21-year-old neighbor’s door around 6:20 p.m., on Riderwood Drive in Westside, hoping to ask the man for medical and shot records for his German shepherd, which Loosmore told police attacked his own Pug mix that evening. Then things got weird.

Two days earlier, a dark-haired man with thick eyebrows perched above his glasses had been wandering around the Legacy Park Apartments, asking people if they knew which apartment was Beavers’s. He looked to be maybe in his forties, with an average build. A police sketch didn’t turn up any leads.
