If you heard some people at school or work casually talking about shooting everyone there, would you report it to an authority?

Depends what the conversation was like. If it was like "Yeah what if someone came into our school and started shooting everyone" than no. But if it was like "Sometimes I hate the kids in this school so much I just want to go home and get my dad's gun"...then yes.

after Columbine and stuff, I always figured I would. But just recently I started noticing how many freshmen guys talk stupid stuff, about shooting everyone and killing their teachers so they'll never have homework again. I know lots of these kids and its just idle talk, they'd never do it. Reporting all those kids would put half of our guys in rehab. But yet, kids have been prosecuted for not speaking up when they hear threats like that...

well, if i know they are just messing around, no, if i think they aren' namely cuz someone reported to the dean when i sarcastically said i would shoot the guy next to me. so, now, i'm seeing a shrink becase of it(not by choice)

I talk about doing that.. but I would never actually do it. That's just what I've always said. "They keep pissing me off.. we should shoot them all down." I would never act on that though.
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/4/02 - 6:26:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've been hoping for that day to come...
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/4/02 - 7:48:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No if they're joking. (If I knew them, I'd be like "guys, you need to shut up before you get in hot water!")

We had a guy at school who claimed he had a list. He actually did end up having a list....but I don't think anyone thought he could actually do it. He also had a list of people he'd ask to help him, and a list of people he liked and would never hurt. I was on the list of people he liked....even though I couldn't stand him.

see, thats what everyone said at Granite Hills and Santana, which weren't that far from me. "Oh, he'd never do it", or "oh, he was just joking around." But he did it.

Except that he didn't do it....that was almost five years ago.

I did once when I heard some younger kids on my bus talking about knowing where their dad kept the bullets and the keys to the gun cabinet. He said he was going to bring the gun to school. I don't know if he'd actually have done it but I don't think he should have had access to his dad's guns, at his age expecially.

Yeah, I'd rather be safe than sorry.
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 11/7/02 - 9:31:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I were one of the people talking.
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/10/02 - 2:52:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
The simple fact that a person would not report a threat like that is that point you're an accessory to whatever happens. Not opening your mouth vs. many people being killed...hhhhmmmm....seems fairly cut and dry to me
19 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/10/02 - 8:46:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't tell the authorities but I would probably ask em why they would say that, and then tell a teacher I trust.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/11/03 - 10:49:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
no because everbody jokes about it and it would be impossible to do at my school
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 1/11/03 - 11:45:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
JF hit it dead on. Some many kids just talk, talk talk talk. Too much, at that. Most of it really is just bull crap.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/19/03 - 10:00:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
seriously. even i say stuff like that. if i'm annoyed, i'll pretend to shoot the back of someones head. or i'll say "i'll shoot the next person that asks me for homework". I would never in a billion years actually shoot someone. Talk is idle habit.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/24/03 - 9:13:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I would not report them, but if any person or people tried to do so. I would beat them to a inche of their miserable lives, and then turn them it.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/24/03 - 9:15:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd report it in a heartbeat. Better safe than sorry.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/24/03 - 9:16:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
no most times it is an empty threat that you don't have any intent on fulfillinh.. sorta like what jesusfreek said
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/5/03 - 12:42:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I talk about that all the time, or I'll be like, "He/She/They should all die." Do I actually mean it? No. Like that one person said, if they say something to the extent of actually getting a specific weapon [like father's gun">...then I might be worried. But I think everyone secretly wishes everyone would die sometimes.
