cbsnews.com reports: Authorities have reported a number of "copycat" threats against schools across the country in the wake of last week's deadly shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school last Wednesday, prompting several arrests around the country.
Broward Sheriff Scott Israel told reporters on Thursday that a number of threats had been made against other schools since the mass shooting that left 17 dead and 14 wounded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
On Sunday, police announced they had arrested a Lauderdale teenager who had posted a message on instagram threatening to kill people at various Broward County schools. According to the statement, "The teen appeared to be remorseful and claimed his post was a joke aimed at scaring his cousin." He is facing one count of sending a written threat to kill, which is a third-degree felony under Florida law.
From The Hill: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said he believes the person who opened fire last week at a Florida high school should be executed.
During an interview with CBS Miami, Rubio was asked whether he believes Nikolas Cruz, who has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, should get the death penalty.
"The answer is yes," Rubio said.

According to Cleveland.com, adviser John Weaver explained that Kasich emerged from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting with “new views” on guns.
