On radio this morning, Glenn shared a promising update in the story out of Plano, Texas involving student Shea Shawhan receiving anonymous threatening messages. The story first came to Glenn’s attention two weeks ago, and Shea joined the Glenn Beck Program last week for a powerful interview about the importance of love in the face of hate.
“I’ve got really good news for you,” Glenn said. “Police have arrested a teenager in connection with a cyber bullying case that sent violent and graphic text messages to a disabled high school student at Plano West Senior High School. Do you remember we had Shea on? And Shea is a high school student that has an [8-year-old] mentality. She is so sweet and so nice. We had her on… oh my gosh, you’ll cry your eyes out.”
Police have arrested a teenager in connection with a cyberbullying case that involved violent and graphic text messages sent to a disabled student at Plano West Senior High School.
Plano police spokesman David Tilley said details could not be released because the suspect is a juvenile. He could confirm only that the person arrested was also a Plano school district student and was facing harassment charges, a class B misdemeanor. The arrest was made at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
“She’s beautiful girl,” Glenn said of Shea. “There was so many people that made a big deal out of this that the police took it seriously… They found the kid. They won’t release any information at all. But they found the kid that was doing it… The good news is, that kid is going to be spending some time with the law.”
