School officials in a Florida community say they have heightened security after a former teacher threatened to “seize” a school board building using “200-plus armored tanks.” In the nearly 8-minute-long YouTube video, Givins is heard calling out teachers and school officials. He also calls upon President Trump to supply him with the tanks so he can retake the North Hialeah school system, Fox News reports.

“It’s not clown time. This is a serious situation, I am the superior human being that will ever exist. Not one of you Cuban teachers who taught at North Hialeah Elementary was my equal. I would not create no violent crime, But I will push levels verbally. I apologize for not killing people’s children — FBI agents, CIA agents, Department of Justice people’s, Congress — I apologize that I failed you all in not killing people’s children.”
Miami-Dade County Public Schools issued a statement to 7News:
“While we cannot ascertain the validity of these concerning messages, Miami-Dade County Public Schools has taken all possible precautions to ensure that there is no imminent risk to students and employees of the school.”
An armed guard will be assigned specifically to that campus and the district has also reached out to the FBI, Miami-Dade Police Department’s Bureau of Homeland Security and the Secret Service, Local Miami 7 News reports.
It would be easy to pass this off as mental instability, narcotics or alcohol induced behavior, we cannot let these sort of threats go without a complete investigation and taking the proper security measures.
School officials say they have heightened security across district campuses in response, “no imminent risk to students and employees of the school,” the Miami-Dade County Public Schools said in a statement to the station.
