MySpace.com is in the news again. This time a Florida teenager posted a countdown post of the hours until he blew up his school, Sonrise Christian School. Not a very smart move as Brian Russell Hall, 18, finds himself in more trouble than he bargained for.
A senior at the Sonrise Christian School was arrested Friday after authorities began an investigation into his posting a countdown of the hours until he blew up the school on the popular “My Space” website, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The arrest of Brian Russell Hall, 18, of 815 Wedgewood Lane, Lakeland, stemmed from word the school received from a visitor to his website about the threat. The school, in turn, contacted the Sheriff’s office.
Investigators went to the school and obtained his consent to search his person. They say they found a set of brass knuckles and a knife.
When will these teenagers ever learn that there are consequences to their actions?
