A parent of a fourth grader in Decorah, Iowa caused five schools in the district to go on lockdown on Monday after he sent an email which school officials deemed threatening.
Bruce "Deano" Divers, Jr. was unhappy with the curriculum, especially the sex-ed curriculum, that his 10-year-old was learning. So instead of handling things like a big person, he fired off an email to the school, suing phrases like, "When I retaliate Monday morning..." That was all it took for the schools to go on lockdown and for Divers to be arrested and charged with two counts of 2nd Degree Harassment and one count of 3rd Degree Harassment.
The school superintendent said that if Divers was not happy with the curriculum, he could have simply asked that his child not be a part of that class. Instead, he handed it like a dope and is now paying the price.
As of Tuesday morning, all school activities were back to normal.
