When Karen Shearon learned her 15-year-old daughter failed a state exam on Tuesday, the Staten Island woman reportedly did what any other responsible parent would do, threatening to bomb the institution that flunked her.
According to police, Shearon told a guidance counselor at Susan Wagner High School, "I'm gonna blow up that school," which, in her defense, could really mean anything.
On Friday, the mother of three was charged with second-degree aggravated harassment, pleading not guilty.
"They harassed my children and that's not correct," she told reporters after her arraignment. According to the Staten Island Advance, Shearon now wants to take legal action against the school.
