School Custodian Arrested for Threats to Co-Worker

San Andreas, CA...On 10-29-18 at about 7:50pm, Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office deputies took a report from a Toyon Middle School Administrator regarding a possible threat with a firearm by a custodial staff member. Deputies were told that 72 year old Fred Westbrook of Mokelumne Hill works on the custodial staff at Toyon Middle school and he has been having a dispute with another co-worker. Westbrook reportedly threatened this co-worker and also made several statements to other subjects mentioning bringing a firearm to work. When the school administration was made aware of the statements yesterday afternoon, immediate action was taken to ensure that Westbrook was not on campus and the Sheriff’s Office was called to investigate the incident.




Sheriff’s Deputies interviewed subjects involved and arrested Fred Westbrook yesterday evening for 422PC-criminal threats. He was booked into the Calaveras County Jail with $50,000 bail. Sheriff’s Deputies are working with school staff, administration, and district officials to complete a full investigation. The criminal threats involving this case stem from a dispute between co-workers and threat of workplace violence.

Given that the workplace in this incident is a middle school campus, the seriousness of the situation was recognized and immediate intervention and action was taken. No students were involved in the incident and there has been no reported threats involving students.

If anyone has information regarding this case, please call Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at (209) 754-6500 to speak with a deputy or call the anonymous tip line at (209) 754-6030.

Good job by sheriff and school administrator. It is bad enough to have blowhards here on thepinetree advocating violence but when it is on a school campus it is time to take it very seriously.

Even the bail makes sense for once.

      Due to expected high turn out this election, Calaveras County urges Democrats to vote on Wednesday Nov. 7 to avoid crowding at polling places.

Guess that didn’t work out too well for that gun toting, Trump-lovin’ redneck! A lot of dipsharts at Toyon. Some good people, but there is a reason why the school is not the greatest.

        From the wikipedia entry for the DailyWire website:

        "False stories

        According to Snopes, "DailyWire.com has a tendency to share stories that are taken out of context or not verified."[11] Among the falsehoods published on The Daily Wire include protesters digging up Confederate graves, Democratic congresspeople refusing to stand for a fallen Navy SEAL's widow, and Harvard University holding segregated commencement ceremonies.[11]

        FactCheck.Org found that The Daily Wire was the source of a false story which credited Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson with finding over $500 billion in accounting errors made by the Obama administration. FactCheck.org found that the errors were discovered and published by HUD's independent inspector general before Carson became secretary.[12]

        The Daily Wire has published a number of articles doubting that climate change is occurring and that humans contribute to climate change. Climate scientists have described the articles as inaccurate and misleading.[13][14][15] "

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Daily_Wire

        Just another little bubble inside the right-wing nutcase bubble.

        Here's a link to the NY Times story referenced as a source for the DailyWire piece:

        https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/21/us/california-today-states-homeless-population-drives-national-increase.html

        It mentioned homeless but does not break out homeless children. So a clear deception by DailyWire.

        Also homeless come to CA IMO because the weather in southern CA allows one to survive when homeless. Minnesota does not have many homeless in winter.

    I'd donate $250 to get you permanently out of the US. How about it? What would it take? You'd still get your Social Security but your welfare payments would stop. Could you handle that?

    Trump's constant lying does not mean you should do it too.
