Local FBI agents are educating students on the dangers of posting fake threats on social media.
In the aftermath of school shootings, the FBI’s “Think Before You Post” campaign aims to remind students that hoax threats are not a joke.
The FBI follows up on every tip they receive and will prosecute those responsible.
Agents say making fake threats also takes up valuable law enforcement time and tax payer money.
The bureau is now reminding parents to talk with their kids about the serious consequences that can come from their posts.
