On Friday, Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time, alongside his father. …

According to Kyle, “My dad was there and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos.”

Kashuv was quickly called out for visiting a gun range and posting about it by a variety of other students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But that wasn’t the end of the story. When Kyle went to school today, his principal informed him that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong. But according to Kyle, in the middle of the morning, events took a different turn:

Near the end of third period, my teacher got a call from the office saying I need to go down and see a Mr. Greenleaf. I didn’t know Mr. Greenleaf, but it turned out that he was an armed school resource officer. I went down and found him, and he escorted me to his office. Then a second security officer walked in and sat behind me. Both began questioning me intensely.

Kashuv then claimed that he was treated like a 'criminal' while meeting with the security officer.

He said a second security officer was also present in the meeting. 'Both began questioning me intensely. First, they began berating my tweet, although neither of them had read it; then they began aggressively asking questions about who I went to the range with, whose gun we used, about my father, etc,' Kashuv claimed.

According to Kashuv, a third officer from the Broward County Sheriff's Office later walked in and interrogated him all over again.

'At that point, I asked whether I could record the interview. They said no. I asked if I had done anything wrong. Again, they answered no. I asked why I was there. One said, "Don't get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?"'

Kashuv said he was 'treated like a criminal for no reason other than having gone to the gun range and posted on social media about it'.

I still don't get where school officials have anything to do with a students conduct outside of school walls and school hours.... As long as it was all legal they don't have a boot to piss in.
Yes, if legal.
Monitoring students public social media might prevent a mass shooting? It's been repeatedly reported that the folks that did the shootings left clues about the upcoming events, with some concerned students even reporting the upcoming events and being ignored.

I'm curious why he is interviewed by campus police after the principal spoke to him. Considering the climate and location it would be reasonable and prudent for administration to talk to him. My gut tells me there may not be effective communication between administration and campus security. The school police certainly appear to have handled this very poorly.

Our resource officers report to the school administration for the most part. As a teacher, other students did the right thing reporting it, because of the past events in the school. However, it does sound like the administration and sheriff's office handled it poorly.
Also, the student did not need to ask for a lawyer, he should of called him parents. By the time the resource officers were talking to the student, the administration should have already contacted his parents.

Pokinfun,

Maybe the students did the right thing since, by definition, they lack the authority and balanced judgement to determine what is/isn't a threat, but a simple review of the post should have shown the resource officer/administrators that there was no threat communicated - so, in essence, this young man was questioned, and it sounds like he was berated, for exercising a Constitutionally recognized and guaranteed right in a non-threatening manner. These same folks would probably object to those students (and teachers) who call themselves socialists/communists being called in for questioning even though they are fundamentally committed to dismantling the entire US system of governance and using force to seize property and wealth - which sounds a heck of a lot more threatening to me.
