Brookfield School Resource Officer Gerald Hockey said a student who said that he was going to get a gun while he was on a Brookfield school bus will not be charged criminally, but Brookfield school officials levied a hefty punishment on the child.
The police department was informed April 27 of the incident that occurred that day.
In a video supplied to NEWS On the Green, the student is heard saying, “I’m bringing a (expletive) gun to school.”
The statement causes a commotion with some students laughing, teasing the student and saying that the student is going to get into trouble.
The student, whose age is not known, screams at other bus riders, and later says, “I hate my (expletive) life.”
Hockey said he has a relationship with the student and had been to the student’s house earlier in the day.
The student was provoked, Hockey said, and has mental health issues.
After getting the report, Hockey went to the student’s house to make sure that he does not have access to firearms, and determined that he does not, Hockey said.
Based on the totality of the circumstances, a decision was made not to charge the student with inducing panic, Hockey said.
