A Florida sheriff who arrested the 10-year-old threatening to mass shoot students at his school has spoken out.
It comes just days after 21 people were shot dead at Texas Robb elementary school.
“Parents are afraid” to discipline their kids.
“When I was growing up, the nun hit you with a ruler, a wooden ruler,” Sheriff Marceno told co-host Steve Doocy. “You understood what was right and wrong, and today, what do we do? Society says, well, if your parent disciplines you and there’s any kind of abuse, come forward, so we can report your parent.”
“So parents are afraid,” he continued. “They’re afraid to discipline their kids. Let’s get back to the old school.”
The 10-year-old got arrested two days ago after making a written threat to mass shoot students at his Patriot Elementary School in Florida.
Child safety is our top priority and we have zero tolerance even if we have a fake threat ahead, said Sheriff Marceno.
