Sixth-grader charged with making threats against Wheaton school

A 12-year-old student at Edison Middle School in Wheaton has been charged with disorderly conduct for making threats against the school.

The boy appeared Thursday morning at a detention hearing in DuPage County court. A judge released him to the custody of his mother.

According to authorities, the boy on Tuesday asked a teacher, “Has anyone blown up the school before?” He then stated he would be the first to do so.

Authorities said the boy also asked if police officers were at the school. He then began rocking his chair to make a clicking sound on the floor and said “shots fired” every time the chair hit the floor.

The boy’s next court date is June 23.

It is at least the third time this month a person has been charged with making a threat against a DuPage County school.

Octavio Alvarado, 18, of the 600 block of West Lake Park Drive in Addison, was charged with felony filing of a false threat against a school building or official. Court records allege he transmitted a threat at 9 a.m. on May 20 about Addison Trail High School.

A senior at Addison Trail was charged May 19 with felony filing of a false threat against a school building or official. Authorities allege Michael Gamboa, 18, posted a photo on Instagram depicting a male holding a black gun with a “threatening” caption. A 9 mm handgun was found in his parents’ bedroom.

Now, let’s do an exercise on a real life example :

You politicians who have weighed in on the Texas school shooting, what do you do about the 12 year old who is attending the same school my granddaughter attended just a few years ago? You media experts who have given us your great wisdom, let’s hear from you as well.

Do you search the parent’s house for guns? If found do you confiscate those guns?

Do you incarcerate the youth? Do you prosecute him? To you put him in mandatory mental Heath counseling?

Do you put guards at the school?

All of you are good at telling the world what should have happened after the fact. Tell us the same before the fact.

Would your change in gun laws stop this kid from getting guns? He can break into 10 houses in his neighborhood and steal all the guns he needs.

Is this a kid who is serious about this or just a kid responding to hours and hours of media coverage?

It’s not so easy is it? No one really knows what the future actions of this kid might be.
