Anonymous asks:

Is a 5 year-old, who continually bullies and then threatens to bring a REAL gun to school to kill a classmate, a true threat?

5 year old boy in Pre-K has threatened to get "real" gun to shoot classmate A who is a polite achiever. The bully has formed a gang of 4. He is the leader. Another boy, Classmate B, is also their target. Classmate B was held down, punched and kicked by the bullies on the playground.

Both targets are bright, gentle, giving children. All four bullies all have older male siblings in the school.

This is a class of 18 with only 8 boys.  This private school keeps the class together throughout their years at school. (The victims could be in class with the bullies for 12 years!)
