San Bernardino County (California) Sheriff’s Department deputies issued citations to three Apple Valley school girls after they post death threats against a fellow school pupil.
On March 27 a classmates of 13 year old Heather Marino’s wrote on their blogs under a photo of Heather messages that included “I wanna kill Heather Marino!!!” and “Yeah, let’s do it! LETS DO IT ASAP if she wants an abortion we’ll give her one!”.
The Daily Press reports however that despite the initial citation, San Bernardino County Supervising District Attorney Michael McDowell has now said that there was not enough evidence to take the case to juvenile court. “There’s no intent,” he said. “You look at these Web sites and it’s a lot of trash talk with competition among the kids to see who can dish out the most graphic trash. This case appears to be a feud that’s been going on a long time, this wasn’t the first shoe dropping,” McDowell said. “Even calling it a feud is an overstatement. It’s a bunch of very immature teenagers.”
It’s a charming world.
