Reposting school threats sent to a student could be crime (WJLA-Sinclair warning)
WJLA7, Sinclair-owned station in Washington DC, is warning parents that students who repost threats to schools they receive to others could face criminal charges or at least expulsion from school. Reposting of such messages could be treated very much like reposting child pornography (for which there was a scare a week ago).
Some attention to this possibility comes from a story about a Spapchat at a different Florida school, reported here. This is even more ironic because Snapchat posts are supposed to disappear.
