White teenagers who are actually Nazis showing themselves not even hiding and of course their president don't let them tell you that slavery and all that came with it should be ignored when they haven't forgot that they want to rule the world.

    If everyone in the history of mankind that made threats carried through with them society would already be living in a nation that we're headed for one with no constitution. OMG we are having a snow storm of epic proportion.

    who cares if the kid was making threats its just a little kid.... either way you cant just arrest him .... its not a crime... its a violation of the law.. therefore he must first be detained, questioned, then allowed to be put on bail, then have a trial, then the court will decide

    1:54 That threat was too descriptive not to take seriously. Maybe his mother should pay attention to what he's doing.

    Great idea banning phones in school; students need to focus on their studies. Let's hope parents don't complain. The 15 year old who made the threat should be arrested and his mother should stop treating him like a kid.

    (@9:14) Re: Pacifica H.S. in California,... simply horrifying that students would use a nazi salute. Maybe the schools need to amp up their history class content to let them know just what they are doing.

    Trump is a total MORON his followers believe everything that comes out of his mouth. We need a leader not a child in the Whitehouse, his wife is an immigrant same as is in-laws yet he is waging a war on immigrants from South America of the darker shade. This country was made from immigrants 99% could not support themselves most were indentured servants or slaves. Ask the Italians or Irish and Germans that came over. Trumps forefathers were criminals and expelled and were illegal they finally got permission to immigrate from Germany to the US

    If you are atheist that is your choice.. If a Christian decides to glorify Jesus that is also our choice.. The sad thing is ppl are so miserable that instead of living your life the way you choose and accepting someone else’s beliefs, you choose to be angry and insulting but that shows the incredibly vulnerable side of someone’s insecurities... God love us all!! My comment comes on the heels of reading comments from those who have hopped under the comments of others and chose to attack them for acknowledging God and that is shameful..I will not argue with anyone or attack anyone about what you do or do not believe nor will I defend what and how I believe.. You all need to learn to be more respectful of each other.. Hate and lack of knowledge along with ignorance is the reason the world looks like it does right now and has for a long time now due to ppl and their inability to love and cover each other as human beings.. God bless🙏🏽

    I have stood in retail stores ( 2 auto parts stores and 3 hardware) waiting for the cashier to finish on their cell phone so I can make a purchase. Their managers tell me that "corporate" hires and fires, and he can't send them home or cut their hours because he is under staffed.
