Gun Rumor Was Perpetuated Through Social Media


Rumors, social media, radio scanners and fear perpetuated an incident at the Fond du Lac High School last week police took care of earlier that same day. Police Officer Steve Olson talked about the incident on Behind the Badge last Friday. He says it began with a student comment on Facebook earlier in the day last Tuesday about someone with a gun in the school. He says it was addressed and found to be a rumor. He says unfortunately the earlier incident took on a life of its own fueled by continued rumors and social media. That led to a police response just before 3 p.m. that same day, which again determined that concerns were unfounded. He says with so many people using Facebook and other social media parents should talk to their children about what’s being put on those sites.
