13-year old bomb threat

A 13 year old boy from India, attending school in Singapore, was arrested last week due to his threat to plant bombs on the Marina Bay Sands Casino. The boy posted on Facebook saying that the day he leaves Singapore, he is going to take a "big revenge" and "spit everywhere" by "planting bombs on the Marina Bay Sands Casino". The police were called to case 2 days after the post was visible to everyone.  The boy was punished with a $100,000 fine and was suspended from school. 

After reading this news article in the Straits Times, I was shocked. This boy just through away his life just like that for what is believed to be just a "prank".  It just shows you that you should always "think twice before you act".
