Many would wonder what has become of our youth.  No one really has an answer as to what changes them or sets them off when acts of violence occur involving them.  Recently, a 15-year-old boy was arrested in Florida, and another 15-year-old girl was arrested in California for threatening to shoot up their schools on social media.  What goes on through kids minds these days can only go back to their lifestyle and interest.

Yes, the parents play a role to the greatest extent, but it is what does the child do and who are they around is what influences them.  The video games can also be to blame as we find with the 15-year-old boy from Florida.  Authorities are looking into the causes now as more information is gathered to understand the meaning behind it all and to help put an end to all of this evil.

Friday, an unnamed teen from Seabreeze High School located in Daytona Beach, Florida was on a video game chat platform threatening to bring his dad’s M15 rifle and kill no less than seven people at his school.  As of Tuesday morning, the principal still has not commented to ABC News about the threat.  The statement was reported directly to the FBI, and Volusia County Sheriff’s Office was also notified.  The teen admitted to what was said, and he allegedly posted it but begged and pleaded with the authorities, that “it was just a joke.”

Monday, the sheriff’s office put out a statement, “Joke or not, these types of comments are felonies under the law.  After the mass violence, we’ve seen in Florida, and across the country, law enforcement officers have a responsibility to investigate and charge those who choose to make these types of threatening statements.”

The moment sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home, body cameras captured the arrest as the boy was handcuffed and taken away.  Upon the release of the footage, the mother of the teen was pleading with the officers and telling them they do have a gun and she understood “threats cannot be taken lightly, but he’s just a little kid playing a video game.”

When we hear stories of this matter, we are all quick to judge the family or the kid.  The fact of the matter is, it was a stupid thing to do and should have never been said.  As parents, we tend to paint our children as little angels sometimes, but this is no laughing matter because it is not a joke.

We think our kids are “just playing video games,” but do they really know and understand the full concept of their actions in these situations?  No, they do not, unless they have been told and made to understand life is not a game.  We do not know if it was just a threat or a “joke.”  Authorities are cracking down due to all the shootings, and social media is being monitored 24/7.

As for the 15-year-old girl from California, she was on Snapchat and stated she was “going to commit a shooting at her high school on Thursday.  The FBI contacted the Fresno Police Department at 5 a.m. warning there was “a post on Snapchat with a photo of a gun and the message, ‘Don’t come to school tomorrow.'”

Police Chief Jerry Dyer of Fresno stated Thursday at a press conference, “During the course of the investigation we were able to determine that the actual location that the shooting was going to occur was at Edison High School.  Using GPS, police were informed at about 6:30 a.m. that previous posts to that Snapchat account were made from a home in Fresno and officers were immediately dispatched. When they arrived at the home, the woman who spoke to police said she was aware of the post and was the teen girl’s aunt.”

A guidance counselor pulled the girl out of class and was face to face with police officers.  Police Chief Dyer also stated, “She, when confronted about the post, admitted to the officers that she did, in fact, make this threatening post, but was not able to determine, or at least convince the officers, as to why that post was made.”

Dyer continued, “The unnamed minor has been charged with making a terror threat in juvenile court. She will be facing a substantial amount of time in custody.”

Both of these students have a bright future ahead of them, and they ruin that future when these stupid decisions are made.

  1. The time has come to set-up MENTAL ILLNESS EXAMS for CHILDREN Every Year right along with Entrance Exams. (This will help to identify the troubled youngsters.) Then make sure they receive the proper treatment. #2.) We need a whole Department of MENTAL HEALTH Adviser’s on Duty/Hired By The Schools. ( FYI- The old guidance counselor’s never did work very well for the schools anyway.)

  2. I am so glad that law enforcement is monitoring these threats online and are responding immediately to it. I truly believe if you see something and hear something You should say something and report it to the authorities threat or no threat. This country has too many assault weapons in American homes which has enabled every one to feel it’s okay to shoot anyone as they please. Unfortunately, the youth I hate to say do not have good examples from their parents who harbor these guns in their home and let the kids have easy access to them. We need common sense gun control and fast!

  3. When parents take up in defense of the child, knowing full well that it is wrong, is another reason the kids of today, view everything nonchalantly as nothing, and say I was only kidding. When the law is ignored by the few who think it doesn’t apply to them because of their parents, authorities, and society, caused them to be this way, shows how immature they really are, and not ready to be a young adult.

  4. Stupid Video Games and Not letting the Parents Discipline the Kids is what’s happening to them these days, they think it’s OK to say stuff like this and Nothing happens to them, Then they Cry when they have to get Punished for Stupidity like this, Sport Kids but you need to Wake Up before it’s Too Late and you end up on Death Row

  5. I think you need than just a comet they made You need some evidence that they can actually do it. Like weapons or a plan that they made.

  6. The Media SENSATIONALIZES All these “mass shootings” and these kids are looking to get attention and notoriety! Plus the extremely VIOLENT Video Games and Phototrophic Drugs that cause rage and loss of reality of what is Real.

  7. The kids were stupid and wanted to Scare The Grown-Ups. 20 years ago, during the height of the “Satanic Cult” hysteria, teenagers played with a lot of “satanic” Rock and Roll music — precisely to Scare The Grown-Ups, and a lot of adults fell for it. Don’t you realize that a lot of teenagers *want* to Scare The Grown-Ups? Sometimes they do really stupid things trying to do that. Don’t be so easily taken in.

  8. Should set a age limit on the kids carry tables around with them all the time.
    Playing violent games to fight, kill and so on.They all need to go back playing games like baseball and other sports.

  9. We need to get S-313 Civic act-2019 passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump to teach Civic the Golden rule -Respect and social media responsibility.
    Education is the KEY to restoring our Republic we need ACTION
    To restore Respect of self & others!
    The disrespect and violence in our nation must be addressed and
    Teaching Civics K-12 is a great start.
    We also need to discourage violent video games & violent movies
    Being made too-YES Hollyweird time for you to do the right action -and stop making filth-violent videos & games !
    YES WE CAN restore our Republic and have Good citizens & Good government to keep alive the AMERICAN Dream. The high rate of teen suicide also needs to be reduced too!
    Enough talk -we need ACTION to get Civics -the Golden rule taughtK-12 in ALL schools ASAP!

  10. Are you an idiot? It is the deliberate cultural Marxist insanity taught in our schools by our marxist-Islamist “teachers” that IS THE PROBLEM.

  11. “Your comment is awaiting moderation” is the extremist cultural marxist jabber wonky for the fact that my comment will not be posted because it contains the truth.

  12. I don’t know my feelings on this. The kids need to get it through their heads they can’t make jokes like that but they also should have due process and be sent to a psychiatrist. Keep in mind they haven’t really done anything violent yet and aren’t gang members who have. A substantial amount of time in custody means what kind of custody, jail, a correction facility, foster care, what. Putting the kids on watch and reported to court on a schedule with psychiatric reports to the courts might be more appropriate instead of instantely making them a criminal with a record when they go looking for a job at 18. Maybe making them get a job under court watch might be a good distraction to try first. And there is home schooling or juvenile schools for kids breaking the laws like robbing, selling drugs etc. The kids who killed in Florida did show they were disturbed and had treatment, these two have not so far but could through the court have treatment to make sure it was a stupid kid deal.

  13. No one should take any of these threat ligtely A lot of these children have been made sick watching these bad shows on T V and these vile video games. A lot of young people are left to raise themselves without any parent supervision.

  14. It starts the moment we are born.
    The parents are responsible for the upbringing
    of the child, or children. If the two kids here were aware of the full consequences, I doubt they would have said or post anything.
    Don’t put the whole blame on the parents.
    The school systems should have a accountability education through college level.
    That would curb some of the insane actions
    Committed by people.

  15. Hollywood also is to blame. But they donate so much to the liberal agenda no one holds them accountable. There are very few morals conveyed in television anymore. But the government think’s you can legislate morality.
