If authorities are tough enough on those who do these things and make an example out of them......we won't see these happen often anymore. No Tolerance on threats as these is the absolute necessity.

What happened to the days when a prank was something as innocent as hiding your teacher's desk items? It is amazing how the world has changed. It's time to hand down some serious punishment and make an example of these students. Enough is enough.
