Well this is an odd story.

My brother got in some serious crap today. He is now charged with making terrorist threats for saying "I am going to pull a gun" in front of some kids that were making fun of him. While he did not get arrested (he would have flipped) he got suspended for 5 days from school and is going to have to pay a fine. Now people have been bullying him for about 2 years now and the Ambridge School District refuses to do anything about it, bunch of idiots in there I swear. Now this kid has never got a day of detention and the school lets the kids get away with bullying him. If the school would have stepped in last year and stopped this last year he would not be in this situation. People wonder why stuff like columbine happens, well if you would get involved and stop 1/2 the bullying you would never have stuff like this.

Now what kind of fine will he have to pay for this and will he have to do any community service or the like for it? Now I had some black kid threaten me in the same school and he only got a day of suspension.

He's black. Do anything and it would be a hate crime.

About your bro. It sucks ass that he's been getting picked on and then he threatens them and gets introuble for it. People can only take so much, the shcool should know that.

I don't know what kind of fine he would have to pay, sorry.

Your best bet is to contact a law enforcement office or the courthouse and they should be able to give you an idea of what the outcome will be and the amount of the fine.

Pay a fine? To who and on who's authority? Schools can't fine you (they may force you to pay for damage you do to school property certainly but that is no fine, and fines on schoolbooks don't count either). Your brother better try to contact his mentor/mentrix, councelor or coordinator and tell his fully story and object to the actions taken against him. If you contact certain people it shouldn't be impossible to undo this ridiculous penalty.

Oh and part of me isn't all too suprised with these silly accusations. People (civilians, police and other authorities) shout out "terrorists" and "terrorist actions" way too easily in these days. :cort:

I went under the assumption that because the words charged and arrested were used, the cops were involved...:uhm:

The school is pressing charges. Oddly his "friends" reported him and they all told the same story. He has had some trouble with bullies telling the school stories that they did nothing wrong, and the school belived them!

Forget about the fine, my mom got a laywer. I would not be surpised in the school is sued by some one else for keeping their child safe. We have no metal detectors or searches of any kind aside from drug dogs. I could take in a few pistols and tons of ammo for it in my backpack and they would not notice untill I pulled them out and started shooting. How many other kids are like my brother in this school who do have acess to a gun?

Can't help you with this but all I can say is if you are going to say you are going to pull a gun out on someone, you DAMN WELL BETTER HAVE A GUN. That was a very stupid thing to say to anyone. Kids:vikki:

That is what I said to him. Next time when you want to make a threat back it up with some action. It is one thing to be a criminal, another to be a liar;).

Oddly enough, the next day(friday) a gun was taken off a kid at my school and 2 people in the Mars School distict were stabbed and one died that saturday. The funny thing is the kids were not stabbed in the school since there are metal detectors, they were stabbed in the parking lot. All they did was move the violence out of the classroom.
