    Trinity closed Thursday due to Brohm related threat

    Trinity is closed tomorrow due to a threat made against the school after Brohm made his decision to stay at Purdue.

    People are nuts.

    Sad thing is that in this day, this same thing could happen with any school and a wackado "Fan".

    Just saw the tweet. To close the school over that is ridiculous. That’s very, very clearly sarcasm. Now don’t get me wrong it shouldn’t have been tweeted but for the love of God this is a whole lot of nothing.

    This. Having said that, the fact they closed school over that tweet is pretty incredible. Actually, ridiculous is a much more fitting word.

    The Tweet was overly sarcastic but you just can’t joke about things like that these days. Closing school is probably too precautious, but he deserved a talking to. He will likely end up being arrested which is also too far.

    With a Grandson at the school, I beg to differ. You get a call from law enforcement that says there is a social media threat against the school. At that point there is no choice. Look at the risk both ways . On one side the risk is that it was not a real threat and you have to listen to Monday morning quarterbacks tell you how ridiculous you were. Don’t close in the face of a real threat and the risk is unimaginable. They made the right call. This is not something you joke about.

    If a school closes every time a tweet of that nature hit the web, it would literally never be open.

    The law is the law for a reason. He deserves some jewelry and a ride downtown, if nothing more than to scare him straight and make an example out him. With all the school shootings, some things you just can’t joke about, especially online, where literally, everyone can see it.

    No, when they saw the consequences they would stop making that kind of tweet. How often do you see tweets that threaten to burn down a specific school? This was my first.

    I agree. Request some extra patrols from LMPD for the rest of the week and carry on with that expensive educating.

    Agreed!! I hope he receives the absolute maximum allowable punishment. Not only was his tweet dumb (obviously sarcastic? Yes. But wholly ignorant), but he then followed it up with two more. It is NOT funny....how can anyone be this completely tone deaf when every other week there is a school shooting somewhere.

    This person doesn’t go to Trinity, for starters. It’s a parody account.

    Teenagers say stupid stuff online literally every second of the day. If a kid tweets, “I hate my school and hope it burns to the ground.” is that a threat?

    My first thoughts when hearing about this were "how unnecessary and sad". That's all I have to offer on this.
