Now, the name of the student who started shooting has not yet been released, though he is in police custody. But, if the student who tweeted this is the same student that brought the gun and was shooting students, why wasn't this threat taken seriously?! I know that people say stuff all the time like, "Oh, I'm gonna kill myself if I get a bad grade on that paper" and "Ugh, I just wanna kill him", etc, and threats like these are highly desensitized in modern society, but "I'm gonna bring a gun/bomb/whatever to school" should be not treated so lightly! It oftentimes seems that in similar, preventable cases like these, the shooter says something. They tell someone, they post it online, they let somebody know in some sort of fashion, and nobody listens. Tradgedies like these are totally preventable if we don't act so nonchalant towards violent messages like these. Am I off base in my thought process?"Chardon student Evan Erasmus told WEWS that a student had tweeted that he was going to bring a gun to school, but that no one took him seriously."
