Thoughts? Bomb scare arrest – letter from girl’s mom

Author: | Posted in Uncategorized 4 Comments

West Bend Police took a 15-year-old West Bend High School student into custody in connection with the bomb threat made at the high school on Monday. The WBPD posted an update and that was followed on social media by a note from the girl’s mother.  See below.

Jacqui Gumtow Threat happened yesterday. It was written on a bathroom wall. Police did excellent detective work and figured out who it was throughout last night and this morning. She was arrested this morning.
The girl was being bullied at lunch and did it in hopes of a lock down to get out of lunch.
She comes from a mother who is a teacher and a father who is a Captain in the US ARMY. Her parents are foster and adoptive parents. She is known by most as a sweet tender-hearted girl who is loved by her siblings and will do anything to help someone out.
She is suspended awaiting whether she will face expulsion or pre-expulsion. She has zero criminal or mental health record. She was a first semester honor roll student. Her parents are firm believers in stern, but fair, discipline. There is no excuse for this behavior. She is my daughter.

I’d be happy to answer any other questions. I would be even happier to have my daughter meet with you all to answer any questions.
