Jonathan Martin Detained By Police After Disturbing Instagram Post

Classes canceled at Harvard-Westlake School due to 'indirect threat' in social media post

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

The school's campuses in Los Angeles are expected to remain open.

Martin posted threatening pictures on his Instagram story, showing a shotgun and ammunition with the caption "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your option are suicide, or revenge". Martin's story is a sad one and it is apparent the he needs to seek more help which could translate into a legal suit against the National Football League and the Miami Dolphins if he can prove that his problems are linked to the bullying he claims occurred.

He ultimately quit the team and debated giving up on his career, feeling such psychological duress that he said he twice considered committing suicide. But he resurfaced Thursday when he posted a chilling story on his Instagram page. He was also apparently the victim of bullying at Harvard-Westlake.

Martin played in three National Football League seasons, spending 2012 and 2013 with the Dolphins and 2014 with the San Francisco 49ers.

LAPD Officer Tony Kuey told KTLA the school's Studio City and Beverly Crest campuses were closed after a former student of the preparatory school apparently used Instagram to say he wanted to seek revenge for alleged bullying he underwent while he attended. Students received an alert just after 7 a.m. that said while there was no direct threat, a former student made a social media post about being bullied at the school.

"Last evening, we learned of an Internet post that mentions Harvard-Westlake by name", the school said in a statement, via Justin Terranova of the New York Post. "We will provide more information later today". "It takes away your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity". Everybody is calm, a lot of people are leaving now, everything is under control.

Gun violence is one of the biggest trending topics in the country following the deaths of 17 high-school students at Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School less than a week ago.
