According to reports, the son of radical Florida Democrat Rebekah Jones was arrested for “digital threats of terrorism”.
These threats included Snapchat messages that showed the 13-year old threatening to shoot up his school and “stab students”.
Here’s the report from the Pensacola News Journal:
An incident report released Thursday afternoon by the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office allege that the 13-year-old made repeated threats to shoot up Holley Navarre Middle School and to stab students who angered him.
Investigators interviewed multiple students who spoke with the teenager, as well as those who saw messages he posted on social media. In the messages to his friends, the teenager made the following statements, among others:
“I want to shoot up the school.”
If I get a gun I’m gonna shoot up hnms lol.”
“I’m getting a wrath and natural selection shirt so maybe but I don’t think many ppl know what the columbine shooters look like.”
“Okay so it’s been like 3-4 weeks since I got on my new antidepressants and they aren’t working but they’re suppose to by now so I have no hope in getting better so why not kill the losers at school.”
The Miami Herald immediately rushed to the defense of the would-be school shooter, saying he was arrested for “making memes”:

The Twitter “Community Notes” feature fact-checked their false headline:
“An incident report released Thursday afternoon by the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s Office allege that the 13-year-old made repeated threats to shoot up Holley Navarre Middle School and to stab students who angered him”
Right on queue, Rebekah Jones blamed Ron DeSantis for her son getting arrested for these threats:
My family is not safe. My son has been taken on the gov's orders, and I've had to send my husband and daughter out of state for their safety.
THIS is the reality of living in DeSantis' Florida.
There is no freedom here. Only retaliatory rule by a fascist who wishes to be king

Jones is a former Florida data scientist who accused the Health Department of intentionally falsifying COVID-19 data on behalf of Gov. Ron DeSantis. Her bizarre claims were rejected as unfounded by an inspector general’s report.
