An Iowa teen appeared to be so lazy that he tried to outsource a school shooting.
Police in Fort Dodge, Iowa, arrested a 14-year-old boy who allegedly posted an ad for a “school shooter” Friday, according to the Des Moines Register. The unidentified teen’s job posting was reportedly scant on specifics, but cops were able to track him down by contacting Indeed.com, where the gig had been listed. Newsweek reported that police obtained a search warrant to visit the boy’s home.
“Once information was gathered, we worked closely with the school staff to identify the individual involved and hold them accountable,” the Fort Dodge police department wrote in a statement.
The boy was charged with a felony count of making a terrorist threat and is being detained at the Central Iowa Juvenile Detention facility in the small central Iowa town of Eldora, the report said.
Every Town for Gun Safety claims 3 million American kids are “exposed to shootings” and 2,900 children are killed by gunfire annually.
