Revenge At The High School

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #187: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a high school custodian.

Someone had scrawled a threatening message on the wall of a boys’ bathroom. A student reported the graffiti—sending the school into a lock down for the second day in a row.

Two days with back-to-back bomb threats at the high school put everyone on edge. The sheriff vowed to find who’d made the threats and seek justice.

Not a lot of teaching can take place when the entire school population must be evacuated and relocated to an off-campus location while bomb squads and K-9 units search a school. And it takes many hours to conduct the search.

The authorities arrested the 50-something school custodian who’d been an employee with the school district for 12 years.

Dumb Stunt

She pleaded guilty to filing a false report, a felony. Her motive? She was angry with her boss—the school principal. So, scribble something inappropriate about your boss on the bathroom wall, get arrested, charged with a felony, toss away your salary, future contributions to your retirement—for what? [scratching head]

Because she had no prior criminal record and no longer worked for the school district, the judge sentenced her to 90 days of house arrest and 3 years of probation.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #176: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving an 18-year-old high school student.

Valentine’s Day will mark one year since the Parkland High School mass shooting in Florida where 17 people were killed. You’d assume students all around the U.S. knew about the shooting in record time. Social Media spreads news faster than news outlets.

And yet, with all the sadness and fear during that time, 14 days after the Parkland shooting, an 18-year-old high school student posted on social media a warning that he was going to kill two specific staff members on Monday.

Teenager’s Escalating Behavior

Robin Lyons Blog PostIf you listen to the mainstream news, it’s been a rough week. There was another school shooting. A North Carolina sophomore shot and killed a classmate.

When the school representative was interviewed, he said it started with bullying and escalated from there.

So far this year, in the U.S., there have been 22 school shootings resulting in 35 people killed—28 were students, and 77 people injured. That’s beyond sad.

It makes me wonder if our correctional system has more young people incarcerated than ever before. The case referenced in this post is part of the equation.

can be upsetting.

I’m still deeply saddened by the school massacre that happened in Florida recently. My heart aches for the families and friends who lost a loved one.

Typically, I share case research after the sentencing phase has concluded. However, in this post, I chose to share some recent news that is both disturbing and praiseworthy.
