Death threats are part of Trump's reelection platform.

Kids threatening to beat down other kids who act out against school authorities...and try to get school closed.

Is that a joke? What farking Universe have I fallen into?

Who the hell says "We're going to 'jump' Hannah?"  Who "Jumps" anyone anymore?  What is this, 1965?

Yeah, this didn't sound right to me either.  Derper parents, sure, but not other students.

It sounds like the high school administrator talk.

Really, these students should have made these available anonymously, sent them to their local news or something. It's not worth the repercussions. Not in to day's "society". Only person left to threaten her is Trump himself, and we know that he's not above that kind of shiatty behavior, so it's just a mater of time.

Poor kid. Guess I'm gonna have to add this to my 'Life's Lessons' talks I give the kids. I wonder what would be going on if the pictures HADN'T been posted? Would Georgia have just pretended that the schools were fine, rather than actually counted the cases that popped up?

You haven't met a lot of teens these days have you? A decent subset loves trump and MAGA because it makes being a teenage dick socially acceptable. So yeah. I believe this

Right!?!?!

I kinda feel like our school would have carried the kids around on their shoulders for stigginit to the man.

Yeah this, there are definitely a subset of kids that default to being authoritarians.

I mean I was a dick in high school but I was never an authoritarian.

When this story broke, I chuckled that anyone thought the response would lead to a bright future for the school and its administrators.

/ A virus is not subject to cajoling, bullying, or even harranguing. Who knew.

Hannah sounds like a brave, smart young lady. Good on her, and good on her parents for raising a kid like Hannah.

Hmmm... on second thought, athletes wanting sports to go on may want the schools to be open.

Surely there will be fully functional collegiate sports and scholarship money by next year, yes?

/maybe

I can't  believe so many are risking the lives of so many more just to get a taste of rancid smegma from the little orange's peenus to be in the  orange pile of pig shiate's good graces.

Not religious but isn't there something about not putting false gods before the, or something like that?

Eh. From what I've seen in the orbit of my nephew, they are just teen bullies and dicks who love that there is now a socially acceptable way to do this. It's not authoritarian in reason, more lord of the flies and unchecked teen dickery

Forgot who said this: "I spent 4 years in high school making a fool of myself. Then 4 years in college realizing that I had. After I graduated, I discovered that the real world was just like high school."

I wonder how many schools across the country have as packed hallways, but without the viral videos?

Not just Hanna.  Anyone named Hanna.    And this is pretty much an actionable crime.

People sending threats are obviously douche bags, but is the best way to make that stop to show your face on CNN and have your name be made public? I have a feeling the threats are going to get worse.

In an article about threats directed at a student, they post her picture? Doesn't this seem kinda stupid?

Don't worry, kids in our county are not literate enough to find the article.

The genie is out of the bottle at this point. Like I said upthread, the best move would have been to post these anonymously in some way from the beginning.

I'm so broken at this point, I'm questioning if this is real. I mean, I looked at it and my first thought was "Haha, that's funny. This is the type of president that would say that. . . wait.   . DID he actually say that? Jesus, do I have to click on that bastard's twitter feed just to ferret this out? I don't want to even look. . . "

Ugh.. .

In the interview, she said that some Seniors were pretty upset about school being shut down during their senior year.  It's possible that they may have credits they need for graduation, or stuff they were hoping to pad their transcript with, that will be difficult to complete if the schedule gets messed up.  If they see her as responsible for shutting down the football schedule...yeah, expect violence and expect it to go uninvestigated by the police.

I have a relative in his early twenties who uses that term all the time.  I tell him he's hanging out with the wrong people.

On Sunday, she said she doesn't think the school would have addressed the issue as early as it did if she hadn't posted the image.

She's not the only one who thinks this.
