‘Shoot them and start over’: Pennsylvania dad arrested for terroristic threats against striking teachers

Published

on

A Pennsylvania parent is accused of making death threats on Facebook against striking teachers.

George Shallenberger was charged with two counts of making terroristic threats after police received multiple reports about the social media postings, reported KDKA-TV.

Teachers went on strike Oct. 18 and have been picketing at each of the Ringgold School District’s four buildings after their last four-year contract expired in June, but they’re unhappy with the salary offer in the latest round of collective bargaining.

“Easiest job in the world but they need more money,” Shallenberger wrote on his Facebook account. “Shoot them and start over.”

The 44-year-old Shallenberger, who also complains about NFL protesters and frequently posts photos of things that look like penises, also made two more gun-related threats on his social media account.

“Guns don’t kill people. I kill people,” he wrote Wednesday. “Happiness is a warm gun.”

He had been complaining about the district’s teachers for at least a month.

“F*cking school teachers need to get real jobs,” Shallenberger wrote Oct. 6. “Damn snowflakes.”

Police said teachers and other parents reported the threatening posts.

Ringgold teachers say their pay is generally lower than other districts in the Pittsburgh area, and they argue some of them have to take second jobs to make a living.

State law requires teachers to go back to work Nov. 21, but union leaders hope to reach an agreement by next week.

Shallenberger, who said he started a job as a welder in September, remains jailed on $150,000 bond, and he’s due in court Dec. 5 for a preliminary hearing.

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

Trouble appears to be brewing between President Donald Trump and the cable news station he loves: Fox News.

In a tweet Monday night, the president lashed out at the network over its polling and called it “fake news’ — an epithet he usually reserves for mainstream outlets:

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.
