Re: “Dardanelle teen a suspect in threats on school

Is Julian Calfy being used as an election year scapegoat, so that they can show what an amazing job local police and Dardanelle's school board members are doing and why they should be re-elected?

Great reporting, nice and one sided. I realize that reporters may not have access to juvenile records but if they had they would know that Julian Calfy was arrested and charged with destruction of school property (torn bus seats) and when it went to court the charges had to be dismissed.

Why ? Because the pictures that were the schools evidence were dated from 2007 (2 full years before Julian Calfy was ever in Arkansas), however since getting in trouble at school violated his probation, they were able to follow through with an expulsion. Julian Calfy was on probation for the "Jackass like" prank he and his friends took part in utilizing syrup of ipecac during the prior school year. In addition, due to the probation being violated, they have been able to keep Julian Calfy in custody since the middle of December.

This being the case, how is it that they are reporting that Julian Calfy appeared to be following through with some type of plot against anyone? Catastrophe Averted ??? Can anyone explain this, PLEASE?

Their "electronic monitoring" and "Scary stuff" consists of Hard Rock song lyrics that were posted on his Facebook page at different times.

Bomb making materials...Common household items taken out of context...Q-tips, SOS pads, a box of nails (which was used to build a shed by his grandfather), and empty containers from a water filtration system that the family uses. None of which, were together into the same area of the house. How many of us have these? Are we plotting, too?

As to the ATF involvement, by picking up the phone and calling to ask any question about the items, they are able to state that the ATF assisted them in their investigation.

Who's the bully here? Isn't this an election year?

All this kid ever wanted was to stop being persecuted long enough to finish his probation so he could leave this state and have a normal life again. He has been in a juvenile facility working hard towards that goal. Now they want to take that opportunity away too, and lock him up in an adult prison. Is there no one that can help this kid before there isn't even any hope left?

Julian just wanted to finish school and join the military to serve our country. They have destroyed his childhood and now, it seems that they won't be satisfied until they destroy any possible chance at a normal productive adult life, too.

My heart breaks for this family that has been ripped apart and for the unnecessary fears that have been put onto this community.
