The DA isn't sure if he will prosecute? How can that be? Will he wait until a teacher is dead to do his job? The threat was posted on Facebook - and the kid sought the means to commit the act (texting another student for a gun). Does Mineral County just hate teachers?

It is time to stop "molly coddling" children. Let's have the name of this miscreant, as well as his parents.
