I'm mentally ill (clinical depression), and one of the things I find really difficult to deal with is the stigma surrounding that term - I can be honest about my condition and worry about how people perceive me, or attempt to hide it and end up hating myself for it. Bringing it up in cases like this merely reinforces the stereotype that mentally ill people are dangerous (to others or themselves) or more likely to commit crimes.
Bury College, on Market Street, in the town centre, was put in lockdown receiving a threat via social media
Police have launched a hunt to find a hoaxer who issued a ‘gun attack’ threat against Bury College.
No-one was hurt and police believe the threat - which was tweeted to the college - was a sick threat. It is understood the hoaxer set up a fake account on Twitter and then direct messaged the threat to the college.
He warned them he had a weapon and would use it. Now GMP are determined to identify the person responsible for sending the message.
