No Joke: Greenbrier High Student Threatens the Next Columbine & Gets Arrested

JeremiahA Greenbrier High School student was arrested Wednesday for threatening to shoot up the school despite claims that his “Columbine” comments were a joke.

Jeremiah Robison, 17, of Evans, was charged with making terroristic threats & acts, a misdemeanor.

On Wednesday morning, a girl alerted school officials that she overheard her classmate threatening to “shoot up the school” while they were together in a Food for Life class. She said Robison has talked about school shootings before. He even looked up photos of guns, the girl said.

Another witness said Robison made the comments sarcastically during the third-period class. “Sometimes, he jokes about the wrong things,” the second girl told officers.

When confronted, Robison confessed to kidding around. He quoted himself as saying, “I’m going to make Columbine look like a joke,” and, “I’m going to shoot up the school.”

He told authorities that he makes offensive jokes because it’s funny. But Robison said he had no intention of hurting anyone. After he confessed to the statements, deputies arrested him.

Sheriff’s Maj. Steve Morris said joking about a school shooting is a no-no.

“This is not the first time he’s had discussions of this nature,” Maj. Morris said. “Comments such as these, particularly in this day and time, cannot be overlooked and ignored.”

HISTORY OF COLUMBINE. According to Wikipedia, Columbine High School was the site of one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern United States history, and the deadliest high school shooting in US history. The shootings occurred on April 20, 1999, when two senior students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, killed 12 students and a teacher, and wounded 23 others, before they both committed suicide.

The massacre made headlines both nationally and internationally, making Columbine a household name, and causing a moral panic in American high schools

    To be Honest with you I’m glad he said something Too the little girl and she had enough common sense to Tell someone and I’m really glad that the sheriff department done something because joking or not it just got real for that little boy and at least it got real for him thank God it didn’t get real for other kids and family and that and I think whatever judge handles this case that he should put that boy to every psychological process because there’s something wrong with you anyway to be joking about all those children that lost their lives and another thing just sit there for a second and look into his eyes In that mugshot you can tell he’s got some kind of emotional problems. so now at this point in time I will turn around and pray but it’s a little boy’s heart and soul , and that God we’ll reach him he put his hand on that Young man And turn his life around God bless you young man
