Middle Schools Students Charged For “Liking” Instagram Post About Gun

TRENTON, OH (FOX19)    Posted Tues., May 09, 2917

Two Butler County students are charged with inducing panic following a post to social media. Sheriff Richard Jones said one Edgewood Middle School student posted a picture of a firearm on social media with the caption, “ready.” 

Another student, “liked” the post, then texted a friend and stated he was going to bring a gun to school in his hoodie, according to investigators.

School officials contacted the sheriff’s office.

“We take this very serious, it is not a joke,” said Sheriff Jones. “I don’t understand why kids think they won’t get in trouble for such serious allegations. I encourage parents to talk to their kids, let them know if they make allegations of bringing dangerous weapons to school, they will go to jail.”

At least one student was suspended for “liking” the photo of the gun on Instagram. Since receiving the notice, the family said the school dropped the suspension and there will be no repercussions for the child’s actions.

The names of the juveniles criminally charged in the case have not been released. The sheriff said several parents kept their children home after rumors of the allegation spread. 

One juvenile was charged with misdemeanor, inducing panic; the other was charged with felony inducing panic.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
