Following the Sandy Hook Massacre, police arrested 24-year-old Kyle Bangayan from California and 19-year-old Korry Martinson from Washington State after they posted threats of shooting up schools on their Facebook accounts.

Bangayan was arrested at his parents’ house in Hollywood where police found 9 firearms including rifles, handguns, and a shotgun.

He was booked into Men’s Central Jail in downtown LA, but was released after he explained that he was joking when he wrote the post. He posted that if people wouldn’t stop posting about the massacre, that he would do the same in LA.

He believes that Americans need to move on, saying that thousands of children die every day in other countries on the regular.

All charges against him were dropped because he did not specifically threaten a school or person. FBI searched his apartment and car, but did not come up with anything threatening or dangerous.
