BuzzFeed – This is Amanda Bowden, a 19-year-old from Connecticut. She was arrested Wednesday after apparently threatening to commit a Newtown-style “mass shooting” at Gateway Community College, which she doesn’t attend, according to law enforcement. She also posted a photo of herself brandishing a gun (above), which has since been deleted.
Federal agents searched her home and found probable cause to arrest her for attempting to damage and destroy with explosives, according to the New Haven Independent.
The college released the following statement:
On Feb. 5, GCC President Dorsey L. Kendrick was contacted by New Haven Chief of Police Dean Esserman, who informed Kendrick that the FBI discovered that a woman posted threats against the college on her Facebook page. Chief Esserman and GCC security had been contacted by the FBI, and were told that there was no imminent danger as a result of the post, but an investigation was underway. The chief requested that Dr. Kendrick and GCC security keep the matter confidential until the investigation was complete. The president, Administrative Dean Lou D’Antonio, and security staff continued to monitor the situation with the New Haven Police Department until they were informed that the woman …, who is not a Gateway student and has no apparent links to the college, had been taken into custody and booked on state and federal charges.
To all the chicks out there who call themselves bad bitches because they dress up, get their hair done, their nails did and feel like they need no man: that is not a bad bitch. Threatening a mass shooting at a school you don’t attend while brandishing a gun and explosives, is. This is one chick I’m never calling a bitch to her face or behind her back, unless that’s following the word ‘bad.’ No doubt she’d use the inter-web and Google Maps to hunt me down and finish me off if I were to ever speak of her that way. That’s the spiciness that women are born with. That’s what I dig about them. I dig spicy. I dig crazy. Just not jailbird crazy that wants to blow up the world.
Way to show up presentable to your arraignment, Amanda. Keep it classy.
