Police investigating an online threat of a mass shooting said they ended up charging a Missouri university professor with producing and possessing marijuana.
Matthew Rouch, 57, who teaches mass communication at Northwest Missouri State University, was arrested Friday after law enforcement officials learned of a Facebook exchange with a fellow professor Wednesday in which Rouch said he begins the school year hopeful, but his optimistic feelings start to wane, KCTV-TV, Kansas City, Mo., reported Friday.
In the post he referred to the 1966 mass shooting from the top of the University of Texas’ iconic bell tower in which 16 people died and 31 others were wounded.
