Facebook Frolics 0
Folks forget that the internet is a public place.
Shooting your mouth off with stupid threats in public is seldom a good idea.
Gilbert police detained a 14-year-old boy Tuesday and accused him of making threats on Facebook to shoot up Mesquite High School and Mesquite Junior High School.
Police obtained a screen shot and traced it to a residence in Chandler, near McQueen and Warner roads. The (14-year-old–ed.) boy was detained Tuesday night after admitting he was responsible for the Facebook postings, Sanger said.
“It still has to be taken seriously,’’ Sanger said. “He was very apologetic.’’
