Add a 13 year old girl to the crew of kids making this felonious, dumb mistake ... this time at East Paulding Middle School.

 

 

For Immediate Release
East Paulding Middle School Student Arrested for Making Threats
(Paulding County, GA) At 6:27 PM on Wednesday February 28, 2018 a parent
called the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office stating that her child heard another
student make threats to “shoot up the school” tomorrow. The parent stated that the
shooting would occur at East Paulding Middle School on Thursday March 1, 2018
at an unspecified time. Detectives with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office
Juvenile Investigations Division immediately went to work and located the alleged
student who made the alleged threats. As a result of interviews with witnesses and
the alleged suspect, a 13 year old East Paulding middle school student was arrested
and charged with the following offense:
East Paulding Middle School Student
13 YOA Female
-Terroristic Threats (F)
The student was arrested but not detained by the Georgia Department of Juvenile
Justice which means that she was released back into the care of her parent(s).
Whatever disciplinary sanctions that are imposed by the Paulding County School
District on this student, or any other student, by their policy will not be released to
the public.
We want to encourage parents, students, and teachers to continue to report any and
all threats to School Administrators and to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office will investigate every single threat made against a student,
teacher, or a school in Paulding County. If there is enough evidence to support
criminal charges, we will pursure them. We also want to remind parents to please
talk to your children and stress the importance of the consequences for making
these types of threats

Fortunately we have a Sheriff who takes his job seriously.

 

Unlike the Coward from Broward, who spends his time worshiping Hillary.

The punishment needs to be much more than paying a fine (that Mommy and Daddy will pay) and probation. Put them out on the streets, in stripes, picking up garbage--anything to let them know that it's not just a slap on the wrist. Juvenile seems to be really lenient on these kids. They need to feel like they are being punished like an adult so they know what will happen if there is a next time.
