(KMOV) – A 36-year-old Calhoun County teacher faces charges after she allegedly made a bomb threat at her own school. Michelle Smith, of Jerseyville, Ill., was charged Thursday with falsely making a terrorist threat.

According to court documents, someone was inside a Calhoun County High School bathroom around 1 p.m. Wednesday when they found a typed letter stating a bomb was inside the school. The letter read; "

This school is going down today. KABOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im tired of all the people here. Everyone is going down, the school will b n flames. It is so stupid here. I cant take it ne more. The teachers suck and don’t do ne thing to help u. All that matters is what ur name is. If I had certain names I would not have the truble I do. Don’t matter, this place sucks and will not be here for long. So long and GOOD-BYE!!!!!!!!!"

Students and teachers evacuated the Hardin, Ill. school and officers searched for explosives, but found none. Authorities say an investigation led to the arrest of Smith, who is a teacher at the school.

She remains in custody on a $500,000 bond. Hardin is about 40 miles northwest of St. Louis.

Looks like she tried to make it look like a student making the threat. (At least I hope it was intentional and not just the way she actually spells and speaks)

She probably got upset because the kids were giving her carrot and celery sticks instead of apples.

Well, since school “sucks” as she says, she won’t be going back there. So she will get her wish.

I wonder what the penalty will be though. I think appropriate penalties include restitution of the time and money spent by law enforcement dealing with a hoax such as this.
