School closed over ex-NFL player Jonathan Martin's shotgun picture post

Threat on Social Media Prompts Harvard-Westlake to Close Studio City Campus Friday

The post from Martin, who has struggled with mental health issues after a 2013 bullying scandal that shook the National Football League, showed a shotgun and referred by name to the private Harvard-Westlake prep school in Los Angeles that he once attended.

A former second-round pick out of Stanford, Martin did not play for the Dolphins after news of the bullying allegations went public.

"We have confirmed that he's been located - the suspect, in this case", Sgt. "The school's private security team is working with the Los Angeles Police Department, which is present on both campuses".

Former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin was detained Friday in Southern California after he posted on Instagram a picture of a shotgun and shell casings.

Martin's post came a week after Nicolas Cruz shot and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The image on the Instagram account said: "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge".

As Ganesh Devy puts it, "It takes centuries for a community to create a language , and they are the cultural heritage of humanity".

NBC News also reports that Martin was detained Friday by police.

LAPD officials declined to name the person who had been detained, but said that person is believed responsible for the post. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins have not announced any details of Martin's illness. "At no point did I feel greatly concerned about my safety or the safety of others because of the precautions that Harvard-Westlake takes for all of us".

Martin was bullied by Dolphins teammates in 2013, according to an independent report commissioned by the NFL. An NFL investigation found that Incognito, Pouncey and teammate John Jerry engaged in persistent harassment directed at Martin.

"At Harvard-Westlake, we try to teach with everything that we do, including teaching how to do things the right way and teaching what's the right way to be with every single thing we do - arts, academics, athletics, operations, everything", Barzdukas said in the article.

"You learn to tone down your size and blackness by becoming shy, introverted, friendly, so you won't scare the little rich white kids or their parents", Martin wrote. He also tagged James Dunleavy, who attended Harvard-Westlake and was a walk-on basketball player at USC.

Extra patrols will be in place around the Harvard-Westlake campuses Friday, Kuey said.
