    So glad he was caught before he harmed anyone Thank you to the Mom that got one of the guns and called the police. Thanks to our Police Dept and everyone that help to find him and no one was hurt .

  4. What always amazes me is when someone is “angry” at a situation they caused they resort to threats on others that aren’t involved in their situation by any means. My only guess is a tactic to throw someone off their trail or their delusional thoughts. Such as, ” hey I’m super pissed so I want to create as much havoc as I can. Let me threaten the school children and the police department. Because that’s going to make it all go away.” Complete lack of a moral compass or just a flaming idiot!!!!!
