Students Arrested After Starting GoFundMe To Sponsor School Shooting
We received an exclusive statement from GoFundMe in response to this story:
“The campaign raised no funds and has been removed from the platform. Additionally, the campaign organizer has been banned from using the GoFundMe platform. It is against GoFundMe’s terms of service to raise funds on our platform to buy ammunition or firearms.”
People are as dumb as they are deranged.
A report on ABC15 details how two students from Combs High School were arrested after setting up a GoFundMe to buy bullets so that they could shoot up the school.
Last week police responded to a phone call by a student claiming that he heard two of his peers discussing bringing a gun to school. One of the students in that conversation helped set up the money-raising account:
“The site explained that ammunition was expensive and they needed help to shoot up Combs High School,” PCSO said in a statement.
Upon investigation, neither student had weapons in their possession, but the second student did have access to firearms at his parents’ home.
Both boys were charged with conspiracy to commit a terrorist act and interference in an educational institution.
