Since the shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month, many schools have seen an uptick in new threats. In Anderson County, South Carolina, Sheriff Chad McBride is warning students that they can be arrested for threats, even if they say they're just making a joke.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with McBride, who says school safety has been the No. 1 issue the county has been dealing with recently, with five students being arrested for threats.

This segment aired on March 7, 2018.
