Brooklyn Teacher Held on $100K Bail After "Columbine" Threat
Milo, who's been working in NYC public schools since 2001, had gotten in trouble with the Department of Education before, having been sent to one of the infamous "rubber rooms" in May for a disciplinary violation. Her lawyer told the court that Milo is "not a threat to anybody" and basically that she doesn't have a gun anyway, so why worry. There's ways of getting those, you know.
Obviously it was a stupid and menacing thing to say, but who knows what tone she was using, what happened in her class that day, etc. Totally unacceptable nonetheless. But maybe it was an honest-to-God moment of foot in mouth, with nothing dangerous behind it. No way to know for sure. Milo's husband's ex-wife told the Post (perhaps with something of a bias?) "I'm not surprised" about the incident.
