Dozens of schools, like Stockbridge Community Schools, shown here, have received threats since the shooting in Parkland, Fla.

Threats against schools have spiked in Michigan since the school shooting in Parkland, Fla. At a press conference in Detroit yesterday, U.S. attorney Matthew Schneider vowed to track down and prosecute the people making threats.

Michigan Radio’s senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry joined Morning Edition host Doug Tribou to discuss the impact of the threat of prosecution.

They also talk about an officer who accidentally left his loaded gun in a school locker room, an oil spill in the Straits of Mackinac, and campaign spending in Michigan governor’s race.
