It’s been a horrifying emotional last 9 days in the South Florida community of Parkland, FL. And on Friday afternoon it got even more bizarre, when former Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin took to social media and made what could be considered a school threat of his own.

First, on Friday morning students, faculty and administration made the brave effort to resume school at Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since 19 year old Nikolas Cruz killed 14 students and three faculty members at the school on February 14.

Emotions were tense and there was even law enforcement present for everyone arriving to help re-assure that it would be safe to try to begin to get back to some normalcy.

Then, on Instagram, Martin, a former Dolphins offensive lineman who’s now been out of football for three years, posted this:

The names listed are two of Martin’s high school classmates in Los Angeles and his former Miami teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey. And he makes reference to “revenge” with a shotgun and shells visible. Plus, he used the hashtag “#HarvardWestlake,” which is the the name of his high school.

When, the Southern California high school got notified of the post, it was enough for them to go into safety procedures and dismiss the school for the day.

Back to Martin, after graduating from Harvard Westlake High, he played college football at Stanford before coming to the Dolphins. And, it was 2013, where those aforementioned Fins players were accused of bullying and harassing Martin. Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins after an NFL investigation, and Martin later was given his release by Miami. He retired in 2015.

Martin admitted to the NFL investigators in the matter that he had thought about and even tried, to kill himself on multiple occasions.

So, obviously, there are very real issues for him.

It was reported Friday afternoon that the LAPD had located Martin and taken him into custody for questioning about the Instagram post/perceived threat to the school. Martin was released by the authorities Friday evening.

Your heart has to bleed for everyone in the Parkland community that had such an awful large scale loss of life in a matter of minutes. However, they took a bold step towards the healing process Friday.

And an Instagram post from someone in California didn’t, and won’t, stop them from doing so.

    So it appears that just about everyone has been “Bullied” at some point or another. What a bunch of wussies we have created over the past couple of decades.
