Florida Teen Arrested After Making Jokes About School Shootings In Video Game Chatroom

When officials came in Florida on Friday to arrest a 15-year-old after threats showed up on a video game platform to commit a school shooting, he informed them he was joking. “I Dalton Barnhart vow to bring my father m15 to school and kill at least 7 people,” the boy wrote using a fake name, according to a report from the Office of the Volusia County Sheriff.

The teen is one of more than two dozen people arrested for threats of mass shooting since 31 people were killed in shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio on one weekend this month.

The raft of instances follows an FBI director directive right after the two massacres for agency headquarters nationwide in early August to perform a fresh threat assessment in an attempt to thwart more mass assaults. The FBI was worried that the assaults might inspire violent national extremists based in the U.S. to “participate incomparable acts of violence,” the agency said in its declaration about the recent piece of news.

It was a trip to the FBI that sent the deputies of the sheriff to the Florida teen’s home, the report of the sheriff says. He’s not called because he’s a minor. A woman who said the boy is her son told authorities that kids are saying things like that all the time and her child shouldn’t be treated as an arrest shows terrorist, body-camera footage.

Joke or not, such comments are a felony in Florida, written on its Facebook page by the sheriff’s department.
