A terrible lapse of judgment caused an 12-year old to be arrested and jailed over night due to a threat to a Chicopee, Massachusetts. Chicopee Police arrested a young girl for posting on her social media page, **WARNING** IF YOU GO TO DUPONT, DO NOT GO ON MARCH 19TH 2018, THERE WILL BE A SHOOTING THERE UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TAKEN DO NOT GO, THIS IS NOT A JOKE IF YOU THINK IT IS GOOD LUCK TMR MY GOAL IS TO SHOOT 32 STUDENTS AND 13 TEACHERS AND ESCAPE, THANK YOU FOR BULLING ME, NOW I GET REVENGE, GOOD LUCK!!

On Monday the incident proved to be a hoax. The child did not attend the Dupont Middle School that she where she sent the threat. An extra police presence was available on the schools campus as a precaution.

The girl was a former student at Dupont Middle School. No charges were filed against the little girl who lives in nearby Springfield. She could have faced three to 20 years in prison and a fine.
