Teen admits writing threats to police

May 18, 2008

— Two letters threatening to shoot police officers have been traced to a 14-year-old boy who said he was mad at his parents and thought the letters would be funny.

Police characterized the letters - the first found May 8, the second Thursday morning, both at a Wichita apartment building - as "extremely serious in their content."

"We were very concerned about officer safety, more so than we usually are," said Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz. "If he had the ability to write that kind of language, he has the ability to carry out that kind of conduct."

The first letter claimed responsibility for shooting an off-duty police officer in an alley next to the downtown campus of Wichita Area Technical College on March 25, but police don't believe the teen did it.

In the second letter, the boy wrote that he was going to kill people while they were delivering newspapers.

Another feel good story about a teenager and his parents. Some gene pools should be drained.

Maybe its in the preservitives in Twinkies? Cuz in the last 25 years ..people have gone over the edge with great frequency...even young girls dont look their age theae days like they did in the 70s..a 14 year old girl used 2 look like a 14 yr old girl..but today they seem to be budding much earlier...(maybe its toxins in the world today..causing people 2 evolve at an alarming pace?) and messing with the human minds..maybe its talk shows and the media that is causing people with mental issues to try 2 outdo the latest wierdo that gets attention in the media? Who knows? But someone should be looking into all this (someone with Einstien type o brain) to piece together why the world is getting outta control both mentally & physically...girls getting big boobs at 10 years old should be raising some red flags...is it the ozone? is it the aftermath of the fallout from atom bomb testing? or are to many wierdos just coming out of the woodwork from the talk show circus? People are just getting wierd...I can understand people trying 2 outdo the latest whackadoo cuz of the media makin them headliners but I dont understand the change in the way the youth of today has evloved so quickly...maybe in part it is becuz the parenting has gotten 2 loose and we as a society are just 2 damn busy in the fast food era and fast every thing that we are not paying attention 2 what is most important...parenting time and setting boundarys and ignoring our children 2 the point where they are allowed 2 much freedom to grow up before their time...slow down world and lets get the family unit back together and go back 2 Walton mountain if thats what it takes! Todays world makes me sad!

This kid needs some attention because he's a spoiled POS, that his parents raised, but not unlike millions like him.Send him to Iraq with mommy and daddy.
