Facebook “Threat” Shuts Down “School”

The Brooklyn Eagle reports on a “Brooklyn private school” shut down by a “threat” made on Facebook, a site the crazy kids today are using to get out of going to school. It fails to mention (or is covering up?) the name of the learning institution in question:

Brooklyn Eagle: Brooklyn School Goes into Lockdown: A student attending a private school in Brooklyn received an anonymous threat on the popular social networking web site Facebook early Friday morning, according to the headmaster at that school, who provided full details but asked that the school not be named.

According to the school’s head, the Facebook posting “threatened physical harm, and implied a threat to the school. Quite appropriately, he [the threatened student] reported the threat to the upper school.”

The school’s administration was made aware of the threat at about 10 a.m. Friday, and the student who received it was questioned about the hundreds of “friends” who had access to his Facebook page. It turned out that a little more than a hundred of these were students at the school.

The school in question couldn’t have been in Brooklyn Heights, right?
