ALBERT LEA, MN — A female juvenile has been arrested after an alleged threat made online to “shoot up” the Albert Lea, Minnesota High School.

On August 13th 2019 at approximately 5:46PM, the Albert Lea Police Department (ALPD) received a call in reference to a subject sending out a threatening social media post.

    Dumb girl. No driver license till 18. Maybe send her to another school. Supervise and limit her social media. Her juvenile ass is in hot water with all this mass shootings going on. Screams of attention. Like a goth girl. Book ’em Dano!

    Its a good thing that somebody brought this to the attention of ALPD, instead of, not wanting to get involved. Regardless of her age, let’s get her put in the system as a possible domestic terrorist/threat.

      Bull Shit Allen. The girl was just being cute and you want to destroy her life for it. They have already said she had no intention of doing that. She is only 15 and you want to do something that will follow her for the rest of her life. Over reaction by people like you is why Red Flag laws should never be allowed.

          Do you think for one second that a charge like you want wouldn’t follow her and lock her out of opportunities for the rest of her life. It was a childs prank and that was all.

          I would think that with the way things are going these days, a choice between strict or lenient needs to end up on the strict side. Lenient is what’s gotten us to this ugly place containing school shootings and prank bomb hoaxes.
