Parkland School District Rules that Kyle Kashuv is Not a Threat
It's been a busy day here at LwC. Kanye West news. Apu Nahasapeemapetilon made news. But don't think we forgot about that other menace to society, Kyle Kashuv. Kashuv terrorized an unsuspecting high school by going to the gun range with his father instead of cutting class like his classmates. It was so bad, celebrities got involved.
We're happy to report that after a rigorous investigation, learning about gun safety does not constitute a viable threat. No need to scramble the jets. Terror threat level downgraded.
After first being questioned by a school security officer, a Broward County deputy entered the room and sat behind the teen, Kashuv said. The deputy began asking Kashuv who the rifle belonged to and who he went shooting with. Kashuv said he asked if he could record the interview and was told he couldn't. The teen said he felt like the deputy was trying to get him to incriminate his father.
The Broward County School District got involved after hearing safety concerns from some parents and students, district spokeswoman Nadine Drew said.
“District staff and school administrators looked into this matter and following a review, determined the tweet messages to be non-threatening,” Drew said in a statement. “In addition, school administrators did talk with the student.”
You could have determined that by actually reading the tweets. Or, by seeing through what the people reporting the tweets were actually doing. Some of them even telegraphed what they were going to do in their tweets. That Kyle responded to. Unthreateningly. It was all there on the Internet.
The only known threat is the level of "competence" demonstrated by the reporting officers.

We're glad Kyle is free. You've earned yourself an extra glass of milk tonight. Relax watching WWE NXT tonight and playing God of War on the PS4 for a bit.
Actually, scratch that last part. We don't want you getting called back to the principal's office.
