Police: South Milwaukee Student Arrested After Allegedly Making “Hit List”

From the South Milwaukee Police Department …

During the morning of Thursday, November 14th, the South Milwaukee Police Department arrested a 15-year-old student at the South Milwaukee High School after school officials became aware of what was interpreted as a “hit list” containing the names of other students. 

The South Milwaukee Police Department fully investigated and determined that there was no credible threat to students or staff.  Contrary to some rumors, the school was never placed on “lockdown.” 

The 15-year-old student is being referred to municipal court for Disorderly Conduct.

There is also coverage on Fox 6, WISN, and TMJ4.

    Why is this student only facing disorderly conduct charges ? You say because you didn’t find any weapons that there was no legitimate threat or credibility to this being a real hit list. This is the same thing many of parents, teachers, administrators, and law enforcement officers thought as well where similar situations resulted in the loss of lives. I know of a student who attends South Milwaukee High School right now whose name was on that list and is now terrified to come to school for the fear of being KILLED. How is this kid going to learn that you can’t threaten the life of someone else if all he gets is a slap on the wrist regardless of if you believe it’s a joke to someone else a death threat is NOT a joke & to this child it wasn’t, isn’t, and still not a joke it’s a threat to his life. He is a great kid who not doesn’t feel safe in a school he enjoyed being at & no amount of counseling can change that.
