Police: Florida woman threatened to bomb hungry son’s school


AP 4/23

COCOA, Fla. (AP) — A woman has been arrested months after threatening to blow up her son’s high school unless cafeteria workers started giving him more food, officials said.

The threat was left Feb. 3 in a voicemail to Cocoa High School on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, according to police and court records. The 41-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday and charged with making a false bomb threat and disruption of a school.

She did not leave her name on the voicemail, but the school’s caller ID recorded the number, an arrest report said.

Based on recent legislation, that one actually makes sense.

Notice at first the axle out of alignment. Bent and/or snapped the torque arm on that side and probably the spring hanger also.

I've played disc golf for many years, lots of those years in Florida, and I've seen this behavior many times. Many people are drawn to disc golf because they lack the funds to play ball golf or do lots of other things that cost money. So, they will be willing to go swimming to save a disc that cost 10 or 15 bucks, or more. I've done it. In fact, as an official at the Melbourne Open I spent several days fishing out the discs of world class pros (I have a lot of autographs as a result). But, I wouldn't have done it in a lake with those warning signs. The lake I was in is also open for public swimming on other days when the tournament is not on.

There are also plenty of homeless people who hang out at the park, and some of them will go diving to get discs to sell, as this guy in the story seems to have been doing. He has to share the blame for his own demise, but it is still sad to hear.

Wait... a lake in Florida is open for public swimming??? Is there a 5 foot high fence around it, or what? In fact, would that even work...

Dang... was there a few years ago for an Art Festival. Thought it was a darn nice park actually... and they arranged the Art Festival on sidewalks around the lake.

I did not even think of swimming in the waters there. I went to Sebastian Inlet park to swim in the basin there... or a few times in the open ocean... Never felt comfortable in the waters there. Didn't want to become a "Florida man found dead in local waters... " Although, technically, I was a visitor, not a local.
