I cannot even imagine how my parents would react to something like this. I pulled some crap in high school, but nothing this major. The Grand Blanc High School school student who reported a bogus school shooting via text to his mother is being charged with False Report of Terrorism, which is a 20 year felony.

The 15-year-old's name will not be released because he is a minor. I am sure many people know who he is already.  In regards to the incident, Prosecutor David Leyton said , quote:

“It resulted in great disruption to an entire community, sent fears through the hearts and minds of hundreds of students, teachers, and parents, and caused tremendous amounts of public resources to be spent responding to and following up on the incident.”


What are your thoughts? Does the punishment fit the crime?
