State Police Investigate Student’s Online Threat

HOWELL (WWJ) – A Howell-area high school student could face charges, after police say he made an online threat of violence.

Michigan State Police have already identified the 15-year old Kensington Woods High School student they say admitted making the posting on the website myyearbook.com.

Police said the threat included shooting another person. Site administrators contacted police, who later got in touch with school officials who ID’d the teen.

State police said that during questioning, the boy claimed the online post wasn’t serious.

The student’s name has not been released. The Livingston County Prosecutor’s office is now reviewing the case.

    Was this a threat or a treat? Note the type-o in paragraph three.

    Unless there’s other evidence of evil intent, I’d guess this kid was not serious with his threat. Kids can’t joke around anymore. It’s a shame that this is the world we live in.
