Threats made up to a year ago

Violent threats on Wilson High's Wikipedia page went unchecked – Following last week's story on the school threat made on Wikipedia, it appears that the student has been posting offensive messages onto the school's Wikipedia entry for more than a year. The article recounts the events leading up to the arrest, stating that police did not close the school after the first threat, but only searched the students' bags as they entered the school and requested that the message be removed from the Wikipedia page. Some parents now blame the school for not acting earlier; others blame Wikipedia. Back on Wikipedia, users are deliberating on whether to make mention of the shooting threats in the school's Wikipedia article.
