Last week, Jonathan Martin posted a photo of a shotgun and bullets with a message to his former teammates and bullies that read, “When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide or revenge.” Martin also tagged his former high school and organization in the threatening post.
Since then, Martin has been detained and his Alma-Mater has taken action against him.
According to The @blast, Harvard-Westlake School has just filed for a Workplace Violence Prevention order against Martin, in an attempt to protect its employees and students.
“I am extremely concerned about the possibility of Mr. Martin coming to either campus to act upon the threat of revenge that he broadly publicized,” the president of the school, Rick Commons, said in the documents, adding that “I would be a key target for Mr. Martin if he wanted to seek revenge.”
“Based on Mr. Martin’s behavior and his references to guns and revenge on his recent Instagram post, I am tremendously concerned for both my safety at work and for the safety of employees and students both at Harvard-Westlake campuses.”
As a result, a judge granted the restraining order against Martin.
