A 13-year-old kid in the quiet, wealthy town of Burlingame was arrested yesterday after reportedly using Instagram to threaten a classmate and the entire school for that matter.
According to KTVU, the kid threatened to bomb Our Lady of Angels School, a K-8 Catholic school, after he directly threatened a female classmate. Police were called after the girl's parents learned of the threats.
Burlingame police interviewed the suspect along with his mother. The boy said he had no intention of actually harming anyone or exploding a bomb; he only made those serious threats to get attention.
The kid was arrested on suspicion of making terrorists threats. He's been booked in San Mateo County Jail, where he's presumably getting all the attention he so desired.
