I just read an article on News-gazette.com that I thought you should read. In Illinois, a man on probation for weapon charge has been arrested for threatening to “shoot up” a school. Brian Smith of St Clair County allegedly sent threatening texts to his ex-girlfriend, promising to harm her and her children. In one specific text, he said he would “shoot up the school right now”. The school, St. Theresa’s, was notified of the threat and Mr. Smith was taken into custody.
