Solon High School Students Drop Threats Via Online Rap Battle

Posted By on Wed, Jan 9, 2013 at 1:46 PM


Solon High School officials, along with police, are investigating a threatening rap battle between two students on Facebook.

In light of the county's overall downward spiral into Hell On Earth at any and all public education institutions, threats of any kind are to be taken seriously. But rap battles may be the most noxious of all. Here's more:

One of the student's made a rap song bad mouthing the other student and posted it on Facebook, police said. The other student retaliated and made his own rap song threatening to hurt the other student and made threats to the school. During the retaliation song, knives can be heard being sharpened and gunshots are ringing out in the background.

The threats, which came to light in December, were enough to send many fellow students directly to the school's administration to share their safety concerns.
