Gun violence is a scary fact of life in the United States of America, and an ever increasing fear. And that’s for good reasons.
One recent example: a fan of Lil Uzi Vert threatened to draw his weapon if the rapper didn’t drop a new album.
A CBS affiliate in Florida reported that an unnamed 16-year-old high school student went on Facebook and demanded the rapper release the sequel to his album Luv Is Rage.
“Drop luv is rage 2 before I shoot up my school,” the student wrote.
Someone even commented on this student’s post, “I would not be surprised if you were suspended because of this comment.”
Police then showed up at the teen’s home to arrest him. After searching his home, they found two guns in a lockbox, but the key was missing. So the owners had to pry open the box to prove the guns were still there. Fortunately, police didn’t take this Facebook post lightly because the student could have been serious.
The student was suspended from school and arrested on charges of making false reports of hoax/threats to do violence with a firearm to a school.
