School Closed Due To Threats

Two eastern Kentucky high school students face more than a hundred charges after police say they made threats at school.

The threats at Owsley County High School pushed school officials to cancel class on Wednesday.

State police were called in to investigate.

They arrested the two students, charging each with 124 counts of terroristic threatening.

    I am commenting back to the comment made about the computers at school should be monitored well they are not at owsley high school they can just about go on in website they want I thought these kids were suppose to be going to school to get an education not to sit and chat on the internet all day.I also agree if they were more kids in on this the school should find out just because a family member works at any certain place shouldn't keep that child from getting in trouble. the teachers at owsley schools are not concerned about what is going on or some of the stupid stuff that happens here would not be happening.

    I have heard that they were more students involved and nothing was done due to the fact that one of the other students parents works at Owsley County Elementary School.Owsley School system is just not paying enough attention to what is going on. They are so many kids that are picked on and bothered and they are not the least bit concerned. And some of the teachers could care less what is going on I also my self attended Owsley High School and it wasn't much better then and that has been over 10 years ago. I do not feel as if this case is being pushed under a rug this has happened many times before right at Owsley and also guns have been brought different times and this is the first time it has ever went public.I just feel like if they are more students involved they should receive equal punishment. They need to center there attention on these teachers and find out what they are doing all day from what I am being told it is not there jobs....

    my two nieces were on this list and i think they should take this very serious and find out if any more students were involved. I think metal detectors should be placed in all highschools and teenagers should be monitored better when using computers.

    What happened to the old fashioned spankings and maybe kids wouldn't act this way. Too much freedom at a young age. I bed anyone who is now over 40 would have never behaved this way as a teenager because we would have known what to expect when we got home, a good old fashioned punishment never hurt any of us.

    Its a sad time in this world. when your afraid to send your children to school to get an education for fearing another child may hurt or kill them.

    My grandson and one of my nieces were on that list! I am shocked but also have expected something like this to happen because of all the other schools that have been targeted . I am just glad the threats were not carried out!
