School threat overblown?

In reference to the article “Potsdam Man Charged After Triggering ‘Lockout’ at Lawrence Avenue Following Comment About ‘Why Schools Get Shot Up,’” the incident at Lawrence Avenue School sounds a bit overblown to me. Everybody gets upsets and sounds off once in a while. And while we, or the school in this case, should be leery of the individual’s agitated state, it seems a bit much that he was charged for what seems to me to be nothing more than expressing his right of free speech.
