New York teens record and post ‘extremely racist’ mock school shooting videos — and get arrested for terrorism

Published

on

Four teens in New York were arrested after posting mock school shooting videos that included them uttering racist epithets while pretending to gun people down.

Albany’s Times-Union newspaper reported that four Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School students were arrested after making videos that the county sheriff called “very graphic, very racist and horrifying.”

“It wasn’t something that was just funny,” Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said. “Whatever their intentions were, we may never know, it was a horrifying, graphic video filled with extreme racism.”

In one video, which began with one of the teens saying “I’ve always hated school,” a student enters the screen with what authorities believe was a fake gun before discussing racism and saying the N-word, Albany’s News10 reported.

A 10-year-old girl who played the “victim” in the video, News10 noted, tried to hide from the fake shooter but was pulled out and “shot” a few more times. Two teens aged 14 and 15 were also involved in making the video, as well as a minor of unknown age who filmed it, the Times-Union noted.

After the video was reported to the police, they searched the houses of the minors involved but only found bb guns and fake weapons.

Nonetheless, Sheriff Apple told News10 he considers the videos to constitute a credible threat.

The minors involved were charged with making “terroristic threats” and suspended indefinitely, the report noted.

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway ripped President Donald Trump on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, spent his day with MSNBC to provide live analysis on the first day of televised impeachment hearings.

"It’s also striking, George, that every defense falls apart almost before the end of a single news cycle," anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. "Everything that people have said in an effort to defend him has collapsed under the weight of the president’s conduct."

"What we just heard the president say is delusional," Conway replied. "And it’s debilitating."

From the White House, Erdogan is ranting about the Armenian Genocide, saying it didn’t happen and that he wants to set up a “history commission.”
