The Fifty Dollar Bomb Threat - December 17th 2010, 10:31 PM

Two 16-year-old high school students didn't want to attend class, so they paid a 19-year-old girl $50 to call in a bomb threat...

Lol, $50 in exchange for a trip to jail. Sounds like a good trade-off.

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're feeling groovy!!

That's just plain sillly.

Sure.... for $60. But for 50? That's craziness!! lol

Seriously though.....

I can understand how that MIGHT have seemed like a pretty good plan. But then again - that's how most really silly things [And just plain old stupid things] start off. The focus was to be out of school by 12:30PM.

There is a good lesson to be learned in EVERY story. Something that ALL of us can gain from.

And the lesson from this story is...

NEVER ALLOW YOURSELF to EVER become THAT focused on ANY 'desire' or 'need'. It will blind you to the consequences every time!!

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!

Lol... I'm almost fanatical about achieving my own goals. And it HAS compromised other things in my life at times.


Ok... on topic. 20 years prison is a BIT extreme no??? The whole thing sounds stupid. If I was bent on skipping class though, I wouldn't waste money like that, I'd just leave sick or something, say I got ambushed and mugged during the lunchbreak. I dono the full picture though.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I would hope common sense would intervene and mean the eventual sentence (should one be applied) is less than 20 years - that would hardly be a case of the punishment fitting the crime in my view - but in any event that has to be one of the stupidest decisions I think I've heard of someone making in some time. Phoning in a bomb threat just so two 16-year-olds can bunk off school? I mean, come on...

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

For $50 I would do anything...

Further proof that the world is full of great ideas that are..... well.... awful ideas when you actually think about them.
