August 30, 2013

A student at St. Louis Community College’s Meramec campus was arrested last week for issuing a threatening post on Twitter. The non-specific threat was directed towards the financial aid office at Meramec, and expressed frustration and wanting to kill someone, according to a school spokesperson. Police responded and contacted the student, who turned herself in. She was subsequently released, but charges may be pursued. St Louis Post-Dispatch
