          Destoni has also had trouble in school, calling out in the hallways that her teacher had a sexually transmitted disease, threatening to bring a gun and shoot her teacher and other students, and telling a boy that “he’s lucky he doesn’t have a bullet through his head.”

          While talking with the teen, Dr. Phil asks audience members for their reaction to hearing that Destoni has threatened gun violence.

          “I feel that you don’t care for human life whatsoever,” a young man tells her. “You’re the type of person that you would bring a gun, but you wouldn’t do it because you’re a coward and you hide behind your words.”
