Two teenagers sparked a police alert when they...Brought a gun into school? Took a bit too much of an interest in chemistry?
...wrote a menacing list of schoolmates who “need to die”.Oh. I guess, these days, the
Worried teachers at Seaford Head School called officers after they discovered the ‘death list’ on Facebook threatening nearly 100 pupils, including disabled children.
Posted last weekend, the scrawled paper message – entitled “People Who Need To Die” – was widely shared by youngsters online.Which suggests they weren't too concerned about it. But the supposed 'adults' went into panic mode, of course:
Concerned staff alerted Sussex Police, who sent an officer into school on Monday to interview the two Year 11 students responsible. All pupils at the school were spoken to by teachers while parents were reassured that no children were in danger./facepalm
One parent said: “It’s scary when you hear your child talking about a death list going around.
“I think the teachers and the police were right to take it seriously and find out what was going on – you never know what might happen.
“It must be horrible for the kids on that bit of paper. What a nasty thing to write.”*despairing sigh*
The school said further investigations would determine whether the two authors of the list would be charged with any crime.*hurls PC out of window*
