DECATUR, Tenn. - The Meigs County School System said local law enforcement took a person into custody shortly after midnight Friday for posting a violent threat to social media. According to the MCSS, the Meigs County Sheriff's Department received information about an violent threat posted on social media Thursday from students and the community. It was not specified what the threat was in the release.
"The Meigs County School System would like to praise the students and school community who quickly reported this incident to authorities. The sincere and brave actions of those who reported allowed authorities the ability to act quickly to ensure the safety of our community," the school system said in a press release.

Two big questions...
Why didn't the FBI do something?
Where the hell are this kid's parents?
The FBI should be held accountable for this.
They were called and told that this kid posted a Youtube video titled "Im going to be a professional school shooter. The FBI interviewed the kid and shortly after the kid went crazy and killed a bunch of other kids.
Hold the police accountable!
They were called 39 times!!! ...before this took place.
This could have been prevented. 17 could still be alive. The blood is on their hands. We don't need gun control, we need FBI and Law Enforcement Control.
Had agents sought a grand jury subpoena to obtain data from YouTube to identify the person behind the posting, it is not certain that prosecutors would have agreed to seek one based on the scant information available. Agents might have a hard time convincing prosecutors of an imminent threat because the post mentioned no time or location of a possible shooting.
Even if agents had tied Mr. Cruz to the YouTube post, the authorities probably would have questioned him or his family and friends but would have been unable seize his gun without a court order.

The one in Meigs County TN last-night was averted before the start of school today.
But your right the FBI should have done something before the tragedy in FL.
