How many days has it been since the New Zealand shooting? 

Courtesy of Richmond Times-Dispatch:

The Charlottesville Police Department arrested a 17-year-old male at 6 a.m. on one felony count of making threats to a school and a misdemeanor charge of harassment by computer, according to a news release.

It’s unclear where the male was arrested, but Albemarle County police were cited in the city release as assisting with the investigation. Charlottesville police will hold a press conference this afternoon about the arrest.

“The Albemarle County Police Department is committed to pursuing criminal charges against those who choose to take to social media and threaten to carry out acts of violence against our community,” the department said in a press release.

Police have not confirmed the subject of the investigation at CHS, but a screenshot of a threatening post from a separate online forum appeared Wednesday on Reddit.

The post threatened an ethnic cleansing in the form of a school shooting and told white students at CHS to stay home. The person who posted the threat claimed to be a Charlottesville student.

A city schools spokeswoman has acknowledged that the threat was “racially charged.” The press release said the post contained “biased-based language targeting specific ethnic groups.”

According to the Reddit post, the screenshot came from the message boards 4chan and 8chan, parts of which are frequented by white supremacists. The sites were banned in New Zealand in the wake of last week’s mosque shootings for hosting video of the massacre.

The article mentions another student who made a similar threat that the police are trying to determine if they are connected.

Gee, I just have no idea who could be inspiring all of these white supremacist ideas and racial hatred in this country.

Hang on, it will come to me.

    That “fact checking” site that dominates our Saturday newspaper’s opinion page agrees with a statement by Don the Con that white supremacists constitute a very small number of people. Sure, if you go by the total world population. The problem arises where there are concentrations of them and their ethos. It’s sad to think that, Charlottesville, which is the home of Thomas Jefferson, has become mired and taken over by white supremacist rhetoric. I remember visiting Charlottesville and Mount Vernon as a child and being thrilled to be where the founders of our country lived. Now, when we think of Charlottesville, we think of neo-Nazis marching and rioting and killing. Those images live on in this most recent news.

    OT? “The college admission bribery scandal revealed an uncomfortable truth about America’s higher education system: it isn’t fair. Michel Martin speaks to Daniel Golden, the author of “The Price of Admission,” about what college hopefuls face when choosing the school of their dreams.”

    Beaglemom, I have similar memories of Charlottesville and Mt. Vernon and Gadsby’s Tavern in Old Town Alexandria. I’ve been away for nearly 40 years and still get homesick. But I, too, can’t get the image of those torches moving in lockstep in the night. I never drove past the Jefferson Memorial without a feeling of awe and gratitude.
