What happens to those reporting false information on school shootings or bomb threats etc.? Well, in this case they caught the perpetrators, however, one could look for what happens to false red flag reports and see what you find. I found nothing.
This is a good story, the guys were both punished though the sentence is probably minimal therefore not mentioned. The one even had child porn. The perps were both part of a group of hackers spreading chaos. How many more groups are there just like this? Who knows? How many false red flag reports are there? Who knows?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 21-year-old man has pleaded guilty to sending false shooting and bomb threats to schools in the U.S. and Britain.
The Department of Justice says Timothy Vaughn of Winston-Salem, North Carolina was a member of the Apophis Squad, a collective of hackers intent on using the internet to sow chaos.
