Last week two Brunswick County Academy students were arrested for their alleged role in a bomb threat last Thursday at the school. Charges are pending against three other juveniles.
The threat, the sixth for the school district this school year, is being taken seriously, and the associated punishment is—and should be—reflective of that.
Bomb threats are not pranks. When a threat is received by school or law enforcement officials, a series of events swing into place to analyze the potential harm.
