police arrest “Jihadi Jim”…a teenager they say threatened Star Academic High School
and demanded ransom to abort the attack.
Tucson police say 18-year old Arturo Gil was booked on felony terrorism
and hoax charges after making the threats on social media, claiming he was
going to shoot the school and explode two bombs planted in classrooms
threats almost never pan out, police never treat them lightly and always assume
that they are genuine until proven otherwise.
Bay notes that, not only is Gil being prosecuted, he could be forced to
pay the costs of the emergency response and subsequent investigation.
