DuBose student suspended for list titled ‘People to Kill’

  • Wednesday, September 3, 2014

A DuBose Middle School student has been suspended after writing a note with a heading that read “People to Kill.”

According to the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office and a statement from Dorchester District Two, on Aug. 29 a teacher at DuBose Middle found a note that had been dropped in the hallway that had a list of names, 14 of whom were students, and was titled “People to Kill.”

After an investigation by school administration and the School Resource Officer, the student was identified and admitted to writing the list but stated it was not meant as a threat. DCSO’s incident report states the student said he had written the list as a method of stress relief and he had meant to place the list in the trash, and that he would never hurt anyone.

The student’s parents were notified, and they said they don’t own firearms and the student wouldn’t have access to any.

DD2 stated the student was immediately suspended until a district discipline hearing. After students on the list were identified, all parents were contacted. The incident report states the school day ended without further incident.
