Revenge At The High School

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

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.

Robin Lyons' blog post #125As you read this, it’s likely your children, grandchild, nieces, or nephews may be back in school. It’s hard to keep up with the varying school start/stop dates across the US.

My grandchildren are back in school. And I’m back on the lookout for anyone suspicious who’s lurking near, working at, or attending schools, hopefully, you are too.

Summer Is A Great Time To Discuss School Threats

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #117Schools are out for the summer, but there has never been a better time to talk with your children about making a threat toward their school. During the summer children are away from outside influence, they’re relaxed, not under any pressure, and seem more willing to ‘talk.’

BLOG POST #109: This week, I’m sharing research on specific criminal cases involving students ages 11-18.

Recently, there was a report on the news about a young man calling in a bomb threat to his girlfriend’s employer so she could get off early. Here are a few examples of the real news children are hearing about, it’s no wonder they might try something similar:

*Market employee and friend cook up bomb hoax to leave work early

*Man accused of making bomb threat to stop girlfriend from seeing ex

*Man Calls in Fake Bomb Threat to Get Out of Work

A Plan To Murder Bullies

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #110Whether it’s a case of school violence or about bullying, the two crimes are often connected. When bullying goes unreported it becomes he said/she said and too often the victim becomes the criminal.

In my opinion, parents and grandparents should continuously talk about bullying with children and stress it’s okay to speak up, in fact, it’s imperative.

BLOG POST #102: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving two high school boys and their plan to kill.

Two boys, a 14 and a 15-year-old made a plan to kill faculty and students at their high school.

Loose Lips Foil Plans

Thankfully, kids talk. The two boys had to have said something to someone who took their intentions seriously and told the school administration. The school administration detained the two boys and searched their backpacks.
