What would you do if your child received a death threat?

in a text and found out it was all a joke started by her boyfriend and carried out by a mutual friend/person?

I was reading about this happening to someone and man, is it scary. I cannot even begin to understand how these kids thought this was funny to do to this girl. :(

What would you do? Police would not do anything until it happened 3 times, which is crazy and could be to late. What do you think should be their punishment?

    Oh My! I had dealt with this situation plenty of times in my line of duty, but I haven't and HOPE TO GOD I don't have to deal with this in a personal level because I don't think I will wait 3 times to happen!!
