Stafford condemns racially insensitive T-shirt worn at school.

Stafford County sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy said in a statement Thursday that the 15-year-old male student at Brooke Point High School faces a terrorism charge along with threatening to bomb or damage a building. Also, the same student said the boy allegedly told her that if she didn’t accept the gun he was going to bring her and help him carry out his plan, he would also shoot her.

On October 27th around 4 p.m., the school resource officer received a call from the principal after reports from parents about a possible threat to bomb the school and shoot people. On Tuesday afternoon, deputies were notified that the suspect had told another student he planned to bomb and “shoot up” the high school, according to SCSO spokesperson Bill Kennedy. She said school administration was not aware until after the photo surfaced on social media Tuesday. “Our current Strategic Plan indicates very clearly that in Stafford County Public Schools we believe in diversity and respect, and this incident is not reflective of those beliefs,” Superintendent Bruce Benson said in the news release. “I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with a number of students at Mountain View and this behavior is not representative of the students there.” “There are plans in place to educate the entire student body about this type of behavior, provide counseling if needed for any student, and to work with the entire community to ensure this type of action does not happen again,” Stemple said.

Police determined the threats stemmed from the teen’s “depression and anger towards fellow students” and his inability to develop relationships with his peers.
