Security increased at Nash County high school after online threat

Posted November 16, 2015

— Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools officials beefed up security at Nash Central High School Monday after a social media threat was posted over the weekend.

The threat was not credible, officials said, but as a precaution, there is an increased law enforcement presence at the high school.

"No incidents have occurred, and all students are safe," Interim Superintendent Travis Twiford said in a statement.

    This is BS. Parents were NOT made aware of the threat until kids got to school and started talking about. Hundreds of parents checked their kids out, like I did. And then the school told me I was being ridiculous and there was no need to check any kids out.

    Better safe than sorry. RMPD then posted a press release that GANGS were involved in an altercation related to Nash Central - where this threat originated from in the first place.

    RM has a GANG problem and our police chief is more worried about offending the offenders due to racial PROFILING instead of effectively trying to stop these gangs.
