Great story by Sara Libby on the twerking video controversy.

She hits all of the key points that we talked about in the Political Podcast.

However she didn’t go after the principal.

My inside sources say that could be a good line to follow for future investigations.

But great story.

Thoughtful reporting.

You should read it.

San Diego School Violence Threat

20130210-101852.jpg

THEATS OF VIOLENCE SENT TO SAN DIEGO MIDDLE SCHOOL

San Diego Sheriff’s Department sent a press release out describing the threats. It is bellow. There will be a press conference this afternoon.

FROM SAN DIEGO SHERIFF

On the morning of February 9, 2013, deputies from the Poway Sheriff’s Station learned about an email threat that had been sent to an administrator at the Twin Peaks Middle School the night before. The threat indicated that on Monday, February 11, 2013, 23 students and a Twin Peaks Middle School teacher would be shot. The email made reference to 3000 rounds of ammunition as well as numerous firearms. The teacher is not being identified at this time.

Working with the Poway Unified School District, detectives from the Poway Criminal Apprehension Team (PCAT) and Computer And Technology Crime High-Tech Response Team (CATCH) immediately launched an investigation in an attempt to identify the source of the email. CATCH is a taskforce consisting of federal, state and local agencies that investigate technology related crimes. Detectives identified a 12 year old student at Twin Peaks Middle School as a possible suspect.

On February 9, 2013, at approximately 5:30 P.M., detectives served a search warrant at the student’s residence. Several computers, along with numerous rifles and handguns, were seized from the residence. The student was taken into custody and was admitted to a local hospital for treatment and evaluation. There is no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in making the threats and it is believed to be an isolated incident.

This case will be submitted to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office for review and evaluation. Making a terrorist threat is a felony in the State of California. The San Diego Sheriff’s Department and the Poway Unified School District take all threats to school safety seriously and will continue to thoroughly investigate all such threats.
