Charges Dropped Against Fort Hamilton H.S. Teacher Accused Of Making Terroristic Threats

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Brooklyn teacher accused of making terroristic threats against school personnel is in the clear.

A jury decided last week on that there was not enough evidence to indict 34-year-old Sabrino Milo on the original charges against her, attorney Andrew Stoll said Wednesday.

The Fort Hamilton High School art teacher was arrested on April 1 after she allegedly told co-workers that she would bring a gun to school to “settle some scores” and “do what needs doing.”

Court papers quoted Milo as saying she “wanted to bring a machine gun under a trench coat to school, and it would be Columbine all over again,” referring to the 1999 high school shooting in Colorado that left 13 dead.

The Department of Education is still weighing disciplinary charges.

Milo got into trouble at the school a year ago for striking a student’s hand with a ruler. She was reprimanded, but returned for this school year.

    She made inappropriate comments in a fit of pique. She probably meant it like when we say “When he gets home, I’m gonna kill him” we have no intention of actually committing murder. But invoking Columbine in this day and age of terrorism was very irresponsible of her. The techers had no choice but to report it. The tragedy that could have ensued had she meant it could not be taken lightly. She has no right to sue.

    she cannot sue. she said what she said and admitted it. she could sue if she never said that but teachers said she did. this woman knows dam well what she said but the law works the way it does. further more they did not say she was innocent. they did not have enough to hold her.

    I guess it ok for teachers to make terroristic threats but not for students….go figure.

    justice was served now she must sue.
