Father charged with making threats on Facebook will avoid jail time
School administrators notified authorities after post
Police say that Whitney P. Curole, 40, who has children that attend St. Charles Parish Public Schools, made threatening remarks on his Facebook page last October. According to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, Curole wrote that he could "go postal on everyone on the St. Charles Parish School Board. Bunch of bastards!!!! Kill em all!!! That includes police, firemen, National Guard, bring your a--es over here and I’ll teach you something about the Bill of Rights."
Capt. Pat Yoes, Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said that the office was alerted by school administration to the alleged threats.
"Someone notified the School Board and the School Board notified us," Yoes said. "This is kind of unusual. We do find we’re getting more and more activity with things being put on Facebook that we’re having to follow up on, but to my knowledge this is the first time (it has come) from adults."
The Curoles said that the outburst on Facebook was prompted when the couple’s ninth-grade son was kicked off of the Hahnville High School football team.
Curole was put into a pretrial intervention program that provides defendants, usually first-time offenders, with opportunities for alternatives to the traditional criminal process of ordinary prosecution.
