Yes, because we all know crushed red pepper is highly toxic. We should sue the grocery store for selling toxic substances to a minor. Or did the school cafeteria have the nerve to make such a dangerous substance readily available to students?

Ah, I see your daily intellectual flotsam has arrived. In the form of one of the oldest bullshit memes society has to offer no less! Very well, I will indulge this one. But only because it is a classic:

A) It was reported as a threat. They can't just ignore it.
B) It was also reported to a school resource officer. An officer who, by literal definition, is a resource being spend precisely where and how it is suppose to be in this case.
C) Social media is often involved prior to mass shootings and other attacks.
D) She is a criminal. Putting aside the the credibility of the threat, she made the threat while impersonating another student. As for the intent of the threat, that is a matter for the courts to determine.

You may crawl back to Shelob now to prepare tomorrow's offering.

That's why "poisoned" was in quotes.

Even if crushed red chili peppers are not poisonous, she had hatred and vengeance in her heart when she did it. According to that article, she was already on a roll, doing acts of vengeance like that. Who knows how far she would have gone if the cycle had not been cut like it was?


According to him, Garrido-Herrara was upset that Morgan had sent her to the principal's office after she reportedly poured glue in a classmate's backpack and was suspected of stealing a laptop.

She wanted to vandalize Morgan's car, according to her arrest affidavit, but her friend convinced her it was a bad idea.

Garrido-Herrera then brought crushed red pepper flakes to school on Tuesday, and handed them to Llanes-Pupo, who poured the seasoning into Morgan's can of Mountain Dew.

Tejeda-Castro was enlisted to help distract the teacher.


She's a minor, so she's not going to prison. She'll likely get probation with a probation officer checking up on her - if she's prosecuted. Hopefully the experience will teach her to know where to draw the line on acts of vengeance. I keep saying "she" when it's "they." There were three girls involved, but "she" was the ring-leader it seems.

There are more appropriate, misdemeanor level, charges that could be brought.

A felony level charge can still result in considerable time in a juvenile facility, which imposes a considerable hardship on the parents and does little for the juvenile save give them training and contacts with the truly criminal. I've seen first hand now negative this can be to a twelve year old. My brother spent almost a year in a facility at this age, and came out much worse than he was before going in. My mother, who was making barely enough to buy food, spent years paying off the fines assessed.

I haven't read the thread, but kids are stupid enough to post their future crimes on instagram, so I think it is somewhat responsible to go after kids who threaten a school. Even if it had an emoji in the threat.

I'm split on this. On one hand, emojis seem to be lighthearted and people surely aren't usually dumb enough to do this sort of thing. On the other hand, people are pretty goddamn stupid and, in this day and age, where people are attention whores and constantly one-up each other with bad jokes and retarded actions, you never know if they're being serious. Emojis are a way of communicating, just like words. I do not think that something that is purely emojis is likely to be serious, but if supplemented by enough words to make it clear that it's a threat, action should be taken. Just imagine someone sending knife pictures and gun pictures to someone while threatening them. It's more serious when it's a picture, but emojis are taken more lightly even though they're used the same way.

Young people here nowadays are soft and much easier to make crack, they complain and whine about everything for lack of real issues to worry about, and it seems their mastery of the language only decreases as they rely on abbreviations and emojis to communicate. They are less happy, yet able to communicate with more people due to their use of the internet, they are tainted with all sorts of strange influences from an early age. I legitimately think this is a massive spread of what is very nearly a mental illness. This headline sounds stupid, but I think an investigation was at least warranted. I'm not sure about actually charging her, but investigating was not a mistake.

I'm fine with emojis, but people who use 3 of them in every sentence need a few blows to the head with a crowbar. Emojis and text talk and netspeak are all contributing to the reduced level of language mastery we see in today's youth. Instead of reading decent books, they go online and read intellectual garbage full of leaps of logic and bad spelling and get all kinds of ideas about independence and not following societal norms just for the sake of being edgy.
