Give me a break. Life isn't CSI. I'm SURE they're doing other things while someone updates this thread every 10 minutes.

I don't think it was a waste, even if if was a hoax. You have to teach people they can't fucking go into public places and make serious threats. Furthermore, the type of person that does that should be monitored in an official capacity.

As for the post delete request, I don't think you;'ll have much luck with that. Why does it even matter? Also, you started a discussion... so people are going to quote at least part, if not all, of your post.

:P

That wasn't a threat.
When I first saw this thread though, I did think that even had he succeeded, it might not make it onto BBC Norfolk. I mean, in a place of such metropolitan buzz, there are so many interesting things going on that a mere school massacre would appear trivial.

Someone spilt mustard all over the floor yesterday. Did you hear?

But shouldn't we all be charged for wasting police time? I mean, if I was the guy scouring this topic for relevant replies to their case, I would be very frustrated surfing through all the rubbish. I mean, even this seemingly irrelevant post could have a reference in it somewhere (it doesn't). The guy has to keep reading. To the end of every sentence. Hahahaha, sucker.

This is an internet forum. We have the right to use it as such. We don't need to limit ourselves just so the police will find this a little easier to do. Atleast no one here has been spamming pics, overusing memes, or creating walls of useless text.

Can someone post a TL;DR version of what happened?

Is TC under custody at the very least?

Oh yeah, the comment about us wasting police time was a joke. I mean, we are wasting a policeman's time, but anyway.

The guy was obviously a fucking nutter. He's going to have a lot more than 'wasting police time' pinned on him, even if the whole thing was a hoax. Hopefully his psycho friends are being arrested as we speak. I wouldn't welcome such a character back here again, and I doubt Wade and co. would be desperate for the publicity either.

TL;DR

Some guy posted a threat about bombing his school. Several people called cops. One of the mods (I think it was Rig but I might be remembering wrong) said that the cops apprehended the poster, questioned him, and are holding him overnight.

You can bet that if this does make it to press, the headline won't be 'Internet Saves School From Savagery!'

There are so many jokes to be made! Norfolk, for one. Let's be honest, it's all very exciting. I for one hadn't posted properly in days, yet I'm probably going to end up shooting my mouth off so much that I'll get hit with the pesky post limit. It's good for something to be happening.

He said he'd set fire and hurt people.
We all collected and put forward his details.
Police didn't start reading until after he was apprehended (afaik)
We don't know what he's being charged for, however we know he's in over night.

As Zerok has already said, we're going to be affected by hindsight looking for so-called "clues" in sirtom93's past posts. Sure, evidence of him hating his school colleagues will be a factor in his decision to make his "plan", his actual threat that started this thread says that. However, it can't have been the single one decision. I mean, I hated a large majority of my school colleagues, but I never threatened to burn the school down or anything. The most I ever did was a quick, angry insult. Now I'm doing A Levels at college, and the only things there that stress me out are work-related (or me being bad at work-related). I could delve into it psychologically and bring up that I often blame myself for my own problems, but we're going off-topic and boring the officers. Yo, Zerok: I need you over here on a psychology issue!

I'd assume guys like sirtom have a long history of perceiving abuse from their surrounds. Sicking the media on the kid would only mess him up more.

Absolutely. I mean, look at Aileen Wuornos. I believe her last words on film were practically a "fuck you" to the media who had only aimed to make money off her case. Okay, sirtom93 isn't exactly a serial killer prostitute, but the principle is the same I think.
