D.C. company tips police to Maui school threat


OF A MAUI TEEN — FOR THREATENING VIOLENCE AT A SCHOOL. LAUREN: THE TEEN TAKING TO SOCIAL MEDIA…THREATENING TO “SHOOT UP THE SCHOOL.” AS ERIKA ENGLE REPORTS, THE TIP CAME FROM A COMPANY FORMED TO MONITOR THESE KINDS OF THREATS. ERIKA? ERIKA: THE WORLD IS SMALLER THAN EVER — THANKS TO THE INTERNET. IRONICALLY, THE PLATFORM THAT ENABLED THE SCHOOL SHOOTING THREAT TO BE POSTED — WAS THE SAME PLATFORM THAT ENABLED WATCH- CENTERS TO FIND IT. 18-YEAR OLD NAINOA GAZMAN FIGUEROA OF KAHULUI, WAS ARRESTED FOR FIRST-DEGREE TERRORISTIC THREATENING EARLY MONDAY MORNING — AFTER A TWEET UNDER HIS NAME THREATENED TO SHOOT UP A SCHOOL. BOB DOWLING, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF WASHINGTON-D-C-BASED WATCHCENTERS, SAYS HIS WORDING — AND IMMEDIATELY NOTIFIED THE MAUI POLICE DEPARTMENT. BOB DOWLING, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, WATCHCENTERS: WHEN WE SEE SOMETHING WE SAY SOMETHING AND WE WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY WHO’S LISTENING THERE, WITH YOUR NEWS CHANNEL TO DO THE SAME THING. POLICE SEARCHED FIGUEROA’S HOME AND FOUND NO FIREARMS TO INDICATE THAT THE THREAT WOULD BE CARRIED OUT AGAINST MAUI HIGH SCHOOL. THE SCHOOL POSTED A NOTICE TO PARENTS ON ITS WEBSITE, BY PRINCIPAL JAMIE YAP. IT SAID, IN PART, “ALL THREATS TO OUR SCHOOL OR STUDENTS ARE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY AND ARE INVESTIGATED THOROUGHLY.” DETENTION TO DISMISSAL WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF ARREST AND SERIOUS CRIMINAL CHARGES.” DOWLING’S PREVIOUS CAREER WAS SPENT WITH THE NAVAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE SERVICE AND THE F-B-I’S JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE. THE COMPANY’S THREAT-ASSESSMENT WORK IS DONE BY COMBAT-WOUNDED VETERANS AND TECHNOLOGY, GIVING THEM — BOB DOWLING, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, WATCHCENTERS: THE ABILITY TO IDENTIFY IN ALL LANGUAGES IN ALL FORUMS, BOTH DEEP WEB DARK WEB AND OTHER WEB, TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFIY AND SURFACE JUST A SIGNLE TTWEET OUT OF WAHT WE CALL THE NEEDLE IN THE NEEDLE STACK. BOB DOWLING, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, WATCHCENTERS:AND SO TO DATE, WE HAVE STOPPED 23 MAUI POLICE SAY FIGUEROA TOLD THEM HE POSTED THE TWEET BECAUSE HE “THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY.” COINCIDENTALLY — MAUI HIGH HAD A LOCKDOWN DRILL MONDAY. ERIKA: MAUI POLICE SAY FIGUEROA WAS STILL IN CUSTODY AS OF EARLIER THIS EVENING ON POSSIBLE TERRORISTIC THREATENING CHARGES. MAUI HIGH SCHOOL AND MAUI POLICE ARE RECOMMENDING PARENTS TO TALK TO THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT HOW MAKING THREATS — EVEN AS A JOKE — CAN HAVE CONSEQUENCES. BACK TO YOU. LAUREN:
