Two children are dead after a Kiwi Farms member William Atchison (Kiwi Farms Profile archive) went on a school rampage in New Mexico (archive).

I wrote about massacre threats sent to Florida schools from the Kiwi Farms email service. I wrote about terror threats sent to hospitals in Wales from the Kiwi Farms email service. Continue reading
